Enjoy the myriad benefits of cupping! As an add-on to your acupuncture session, we apply cups to the relevant muscle groups and leave them on as you rest.
Benefits of Cupping
Cupping is a great way to loosen tight muscles, help with back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and leg pain, stop or reduce upper respiratory symptoms, colds, and flus, and boost immunity.
Improve Blood Circulation
Activate the Lymphatic System
Calm the Nervous System
Treats Muscle Pain and Beyond
While cupping can be used all over the body, it is best known as an effective therapy for neck, shoulder and back pain. Many do not know that cupping can also be useful for:
- Treating respiratory conditions like asthma
- Clearing chest and upper respiratory congestion associated with colds and flus
- Enhancing the immune system
- Calming stress and anxiety
Cupping enhances the effects of an acupuncture treatment, improves circulation, and remove blockages. It can create positive effects in many body tissues including the skin, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and lymph.
Common Conditions Treated with Cupping
What is a Cupping with Acupuncture Treatment Like?
The cupping part of the session involves cups placed on the skin (usually the back) and the creation of a vacuum. The vacuum causes suction which creates positive pressure on the skin, pulling it up into the cup and generating deep muscle relaxation. Our clients here in Washington DC really enjoy the feeling!
