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, and we now offer cupping as a stand-alone procedure. 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.
