A form of traditional Chinese medicine, our practice utilizes glass cups and flame in order to produce suction on the skin. The cups are left for a prescribed amount of time, and then released. This practice detoxifies, increases circulation, and brings in fresh oxygen by pulling up from under the fascia layer of the dermis.
Cupping brings relief to patients for a variety of symptoms. Anxiety, fatigue, migraines, and even high blood pressure benefit from Cupping. The technique uniquely nourishes chronically tense and tight muscles in the neck, shoulders, and back— and aids in muscle recovery post-exercise. Cupping also clears lung congestion in both acute and chronic respiratory conditions.
