Cupping is the placement of “suction cups” on the skin. When there is inflammation in the muscles and tissues, the cells become stagnant and cannot get rid of their waste material.
How Can It Help?
Suctioning over the stagnant area brings a rush of oxygen and blood flow and allows the cells to return to their normal function. It can relieve pain really quickly! It does leave suction marks (red or purple rings) that look like an octopus attack. The marks can last for over a week. Patient’s usually report almost instant pain relief.
We offer thirty minute cupping sessions. Cupping can be included in an acupuncture or acu-aromatherapy session for no extra cost.
