What Is Cupping?

An ancient technique with roots dating back thousands of years, utilized in various forms over time.

Traditionally employed for pain relief.

Suction creates negative pressure in the treated tissue.

What Does Cupping Do

Inducing a neurochemical response, improving sensory connection between the treated body parts and the brain, aiding in the restoration of normal movement patterns.

What Is The Research Saying…

Cupping demonstrates efficacy in enhancing functional tissue mobility and reducing pain levels, particularly in individuals dealing with chronic pain.

Contributes to improving the quality of life by helping to manage pain.

Areas of ongoing research include the lower back, neck, and shoulder regions.

A therapeutic intervention with very low associated risks.

Will I Bruise After Treatment

While some may associate circular ‘bruising’ with this technique, bruising doesn’t necessarily indicate treatment success. Successful outcomes can occur with or without bruising. Any post-treatment bruising or skin discoloration typically resolves within a few hours, with some lingering for a few days or up to a week or two. Such discoloration is not harmful and is likely related to a histamine response in the body.

Why Should I Have This Done?
Who Should Not Have This Done?

Your Doctor of Physical Therapy will determine, through the evaluation process, if cupping is suitable for you. If not, an alternative treatment methodology will be recommended.
