Cupping Therapy can treat muscle pain, neck, shoulder, and lower back pain, congestion in the lungs. It improves the circulation of fresh blood in the area, where you may have inflammation and pain, which helps to expedite the healing process.

The therapy itself involves no pain and can be combined with other treatments, such as massage, moxa therapy, and acupuncture to treat whatever ails the body.

Cupping therapy can be used as an adjunctive with acupuncture treatments. An ancient technique used in various cultures has become increasingly more popular in today’s society like celebrities and professional athletes have been outspoken regarding the benefits.

It is a cutaneous bodywork modality that improves the circulation of blood, lymph, and qi and removes metabolic toxins in the skin, fascia, and muscle tissues. Cupping therapy employs the use of suction between a cup and the skin to gently pull the superficial tissues. The vacuum is created by either heat or a hand pump.

The process dates back to Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures and works by applying Chinese suction cups to the skin along the meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy, blood and creating more oxygen which speeds up healing process. Gymnasts Alex Naddour and Chris Brooks swear by it. Swimmer Michael Phelps also uses it!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is cupping therapy?

Cupping therapy is a safe and effective modality that involves utilizing round jars (often made of glass, plastic, or even bamboo) to be placed on various acupuncture related points or trigger points of the body for “suction release”. It is a non-invasive yet very powerful procedure that enhances lymphatic flow, promotes blood circulation, and opens up blocked pathways that often triggers inflammatory responses within the body.

What does it help with?

Along with tight muscles and tension, cupping is also known to decrease inflammation and encourages faster and more complete healing. Cupping can also help to calm the nervous system, so if you are struggling with anxiety, migraines, and sleeping – this may help! For most people, their biggest issue is lower back pain

What about those cupping marks?! How long do they last?

Cupping became more well-known thanks to athletes and celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow showing off the dark circular marks on their backs. While they may look painful, the marks aren’t painful at all! During the application, you will feel tightness in the beginning, which will slowly begin to decrease. The marks will be pretty swollen right after and then they will begin to show more color throughout the first 24 hours. The darker the area is where you are holding more tension or toxins. Each day the marks will fade and by day 5 or 6, you can barely see them!
