Cupping

Detoxify the body and restore blood flow with this ancient technique.

Pricing

Cupping is a traditional, non-invasive treatment that enhances energy flow and unblocks pathways that often trigger inflammatory responses within the body.

The treatment begins with an assessment of your health history, with an emphasis on injured or pain areas. We then apply dry cups to and around these areas and create a vacuum seal. The cups are left for 10-20 minutes while the area is warmed with infrared heat.

Typically, cupping therapy is not painful, although everyone experiences this technique differently. In terms of pressure, cupping is comparable to a deep tissue massage, which gets into the deeper layers of muscle tissue.

In areas of tissue dysfunction, cupping sometimes leaves a mark known as “sha.”  Sha resembles a bruise but is not painful. Sha is an indication that toxins and stagnation are being pulled to the surface of the body, restoring healthy blood flow and qi to the muscle.

Any discolorations that appear are temporary. Depending on severity, sha marks can last between a few hours and ten days.

Pregnant women should avoid cupping on the lower abdomen, medial leg and lumbosacral region.
