Have you ever noticed an athlete or someone famous with large circle-shaped marks on their body and back? Did you ask yourself “What is that?” Those discoloration marks are from cupping, in which a suction process moves blood through the body.

We specifically use cupping in our clinic as a form of soft tissue mobilization by using myofascial decompression to release tissue restrictions in the skin and muscle. This will help to promote local circulation in the cupped area. 

Cupping can be used to treat:
A better digestive system: If you are dealing with constipation, flatulence, irritable bowel syndrome or 
               other digestive health issues, cupping therapy can minimize downtime and put you back on
               your feet. Many patients note more regular bowel movements after digestive cupping therapy.

Improvement with athletic performance and recovery: Cupping therapy can help athletes, improving

              in-game athletic performance and slashing post-workout recovery times. Cupping can help with

              hamstrings, buttocks, affected muscles etc. Cupping therapy can directly benefit fascia layers 

              beneath the skin, especially helpful in speeding up recovery. 

                  Whereas post-workout massage therapy for athletes may last hours, cupping for athletic purposes lasts only 3-5

                  minutes. In return, athletes can benefit from an increased range of motion with a decrease in muscle pain.

Muscle Relaxation: This is great for anyone who has tight muscles, tension headaches, muscle spasms, etc. Cupping

               therapy can help to relax the muscles and surrounding joints after a workout, a long day at work, poor sleep,

               stressful muscle activities, etc. 

Skin Contour: A 3-5 minute cupping therapy session can benefit your skin quality, contour and elasticity. Cupping has been

              known to help with wrinkle lines and open pores.  make big changes to your skin: cupping therapy has been known

              to fortify wrinkle lines and open your pores.
