Cupping is a therapeutic technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine in which we create suction over large muscle areas using special glass or plastic cups. Cupping can be used to release muscle tension, break up scar tissue, relieve stress, and stimulate acupuncture points. When indicated, cupping leaves red or purple marks on the skin in the shape of the cups. These marks fade in 2-7 days, depending on the severity of the condition.
If indicated, cupping will be included in your acupuncture treatments free of charge. We also offer 30-minute cupping only treatments. These treatments focus on relieving mild to moderate muscular tension in the neck and shoulders, back, and buttocks. For any other conditions, please schedule an Initial Acupuncture Visit so that we can perform a full Traditional Chinese Medicine assessment to tailor your treatment to your individual condition.
