Cupping Therapy is provided by our Massage Therapist, Dan Hopkins and our Acupuncturist, Jason Wincey. Cupping is a massage modality that finds its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. The practice uses glass cups to create a vacuum seal on areas of the body. Cupping increases the blood flow to sore areas in muscles, providing important nutrients to the area that promote healing. It can also provide pain relief by exciting small nerves inside muscles so that they release pain-killing chemicals. Cupping can provide pain relief and help ease the symptoms of many common disorders of the bones and muscles. You may benefit from cupping if you suffer from neck, shoulder, low back or foot pain, and it’s even been shown to be effective for osteoarthritis!
