Chronic pain? Muscle tightness? Inflammation?
Most of us live with some sort of ailment related to the above. But what are you doing to alleviate the aches, pain, or muscle fatigue? One of the ways to find relief and comfort is cupping therapy.
It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction creates a negative pressure environment that allows for myofascial decompression. This negative pressure lifts muscle fibers and increases blood flow in the area.
Will I benefit from cupping therapy?
Almost anyone can benefit from cupping. It is used to treat lack of mobility, tight muscles, scars, and many diagnoses like headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and the release of trigger points. Other benefits include reducing anxiety, improvement of varicose veins, improvement of circulation, the release of toxins, and more. We will spend time learning about your ailments and determine if cupping therapy is the best course of treatment.
What does cupping therapy involve? Is it painful?
Cupping therapy is not painful! It may, however, cause temporary bruising (also known as ecchymosis), swelling or soreness, depending on the person or amount of treatment done to certain areas.
The spots left behind typically fade after several days or a week.
Can I receive cupping therapy during my physical therapy, chiropractic, or acupuncture treatment?
Can I make a standalone appointment just for cupping?
Yes! And yes! Depending on your symptoms and individualized treatment plan, our practitioners can utilize cupping therapy during your regularly scheduled physical therapy, chiropractic, or acupuncture appointment.
