Cupping is a soft tissue technique that goes back Hippocrates. Cupping is a massage technique in which local suction is created on the skin using plastic cups. Cupping can be used on any region of the body. Cupping increases blood circulation and is effective to release tight muscles, fascia and reduce high tone. Cupping will cause some reddening and may cause some bruising that will be temporary. Our therapists can use cupping as an effective massage technique to treat a range of conditions. We commonly use with neck pain and lower back pain. Our therapist also like to integrate to improve movement patterns. Call us to learn more or to give it a try.
