Cupping Therapy

What is cupping?

Cupping therapy is a practice that involves briefly attaching rounded inverted cups to certain parts of the body using a vacuum effect. Some proponents suggest that the drawing of the skin inside the cups increases blood flow to the area.

What can cupping do for me?

The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

Uses for cupping?

Cupping is often recommended as a complementary therapy for the following conditions:

  • Back pain

  • Headache or migraine

  • Knee pain

  • Muscle pain and soreness

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Sports injuries and performance

  • Nerve pain

  • Postural training
