What is Cupping Therapy?

What is cupping therapy? If you’ve experienced back pain, headaches or migraines, or limited flexibility and range of motion, cupping therapy can help. With cupping therapy from Therapeutic Medical Massage, you can start living a fuller life with less pain than you currently experience. Aruna will work with you to understand what is causing your pain and develops a cupping therapy session based on your needs.

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping is an alternative therapy to help you manage pain without the need for prescription pain medication. It also has other health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, stimulating the lymphatic system, and increasing your energy.

During a cupping session, specialized cups are placed on your skin. These cups then create suction to your skin, causing your skin to rise into the cups. This allows for fresh blood to enter the space, improving your body’s circulation. As this happens, it creates negative pressure and allows for your body to relax and focus on healing.

What are the Types of Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is a broad term that encompasses a number of therapies. Aruna offers five types of cupping therapy, including:

  • Fire cupping
  • Bio-magnetic cupping
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Reflexology with cupping therapy

Each of the therapies works to accomplish different things. One of the great things about cupping therapy is that it’s tailored to your needs. So, if your back hurts for one session but another session you’re concerned about wrinkles on your face, it can adapted to what you need the most.

What Does Cupping Therapy Help With?

There are many health benefits associated with cupping therapy. Whether you want to improve the appearance of your skin, help with pain associated with chronic conditions, or improve flexibility and range of motion, cupping can help with that. The more sessions you have, the more it will help you. The types of cupping listed above work best for different conditions, so it’s important to keep an open mind when going into your sessions. Also, you want to tell Aruna if you’re experiencing pain in a specific location. She will tailor the session to help manage your pain from that area.

Is Cupping Therapy Relaxing or Therapeutic?

Cupping is both relaxing and therapeutic. When you have a cupping session, it can help reduce your stress and increase your relaxation. Additionally, because of the health benefits of cupping, it also provides therapeutic areas as well. Cupping sessions provide a two-in-one system where you can relax and feel the healing benefits during your visit to the office. Whether you want to relax and decrease stress in your life or have a cupping session to reduce back pain, now is the right time to schedule your appointment.
