Cupping therapy is a 2,500 year old therapeutic technique that complements acupuncture therapy. During a cupping therapy session, our providers uses plastic vacuum cups to create suction on specific parts of the body. This process expedites the circulation of blood and energy within the body. As a result, it expels the toxins built up in muscle layers, along with pathogens that cause illnesses.
Cupping therapy eliminates physical and emotional waste from muscle layers, which makes it beneficial to patients who struggle with muscle aches and muscle tightness. Patients with most types of ailments will gain some benefit from this treatment option, too.
