Cupping therapy is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since the ancient days. It uses special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It can have many different purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being and also as a type of deep-tissue massage. I use two types of cupping in my clinic. I use the traditional glass cupping that uses a small flame to create a suction. I also use the plastic cups with a pump. In short, cupping is beneficial for:
-Acute and chronic pain -Tension -Stress & relaxation -Cold and flu -Detoxification
I offer cupping therapy to be combined with Acupuncture. I also offer cupping therapy as a stand alone service.
