Cupping therapy helps to open up the meridians in your body to release stagnation. Cupping therapy provides pain relief, reduces painful trigger points, improves blood and lymph circulation, and promotes mobility. Individuals with bronchitis, asthma, congestion, common cold, arthritis, and gastrointestinal disorders can also benefit from cupping therapy.
No, cupping therapy should only be performed by someone who has been trained in this modality. Licensed acupuncturists are experts in performing cupping therapy because not only are they trained thoroughly to do it safely and effectively, they also are equipped with knowledge of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
We often incorporate cupping therapy into your acupuncture session without an additional fee. If you would like a longer cupping therapy session, we offer a 45 min session for $100.
