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
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:
