What is Cupping?


If you are experiencing muscle pain, Cupping Therapy may be a good option for you. Cupping is an ancient form of therapy in which a therapist places silicone cups on your skin to create suction. Negative pressure is then created by removing the oxygen from the cup with a suction device.

Cupping Therapy may seem like a trend, but this practice is anything but new. The practice dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world titled Evers Papyrus describes how ancient Egyptians used Cupping Therapy in 1550 B.C.

Cupping Therapy can help with:

  • Orthopedic Injuries
  • Neck & Back Pain
  • Auto Injuries
  • Work Injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Post-Surgical Scarring
  • Surgical Recovery
  • Pain Management
  • Geriatric Rehabilitation
  • Pain Management
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Fascial Restrictions

One of the main benefits of cupping therapy is its ability to relieve pain. The suction created by the cups helps to loosen tight muscles and increase blood flow, leading to reduced muscle pain and tension, especially in the back, neck, and shoulders.

In addition to relieving pain, cupping therapy also promotes relaxation. The gentle suction and warm sensation from the cups can help release endorphins, the body’s natural pain-relieving chemicals. This can help reduce stress and promote a sense of well-being, making cupping therapy a great choice for those looking for a holistic approach to managing their health. Furthermore, cupping therapy can improve circulation, boost immunity, and improve flexibility and range of motion, making it a well-rounded and effective form of physical therapy.
