Cupping is an ancient practice that involves the use of glass cups placed directly onto the skin. The cup is either first heated with fire or manually pumped to create a vacuum. The cups are then left on your skin for several minutes.  We have several options for cupping treatments, see below.

Benefits of cupping include:

  • The release of toxins such as calcium deposits and cellular debris.

  • Increased blood circulation & help move blood stagnation

  • Reduced pain and softened muscle tissue.

  • Released tissue adhesion

  • Increased flexibility.

  • Reduced inflammation.

  • Relieved mucus congestion in the lungs from respiratory conditions


The discoloration seen on the skin after a cupping session indicates the restoration of blood flow to the tissue that was previously experiencing sluggish blood circulation; this discoloration is not bruising. You will notice a decrease in discoloration after multiple sessions.

This healing modality may be incorporated into your top-tier acupuncture treatment if directed by your practitioner for your personalized treatment plan. If you are looking for cupping as a standalone service, we have the following options:
