Cupping is a treatment which uses cups to create suction on the skin to promote healing & detoxification.
When suction or vacuum is created on the skin, it pulls stagnated blood and lymph to the surface and stimulates healing in the local area to improve circulation, release muscle tension, and promote lymphatic drainage.
This therapy is wonderful to help relieve pain. Many athletes come on a regular basis post-training session to promote healing.
Cupping can be used in acute or chronic conditions. This therapy mimics massage movements ranging from deep tissue and myofascial release to light pumping for lymphatic drainage.
Cupping can be used to treat conditions such as fibromyalgia, edema, inflammation, joint pain, muscle tension, scar tissue, cellulite and more.
Cupping is very safe and relaxing with benefits felt in the first treatment. Bruising may occur in some individuals but is generally painless.
For a cupping session, please book a 30 minute Naturopathic visit with either Dr. Carol or Dr. Courtney.Book an appointment
