What is Cupping?

Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that is now actively used in Physical Therapy practice.

How does Cupping work?

Cupping utilizes suction to bring an increase in localized bloodflow and can be used to break up myofascial adhesions in the skin, fascia, and underlying tissues. This results in improved healing, increased range of motion, and increased muscular strength.

Benefits of Cupping may include:

  • Improved healing
  • Increased range of motion
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Decreased pain
  • Improved circulation
  • Helps to mobilize scar tissue
