Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy


Ever since Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was spotted (no pun intended) at the 2016 Rio Olympics with cupping marks all over his back and shoulders, there has been a great deal of interest in this therapeutic procedure.

Cupping therapy is another highly effective technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is sometimes included in a treatment plan. With cupping therapy, a vacuum is created inside a glass ball or “cup” and the cup is then applied to the skin. This increases local blood circulation tremendously and stimulates the body’s healing response.
