When I first learned how to do cupping… almost 15 years ago; I decided to promptly teach my partner at the time (now husband) and family members how to do it. I absolutely loved how it felt and it really was the most effective therapy for chronic neck and back tension. Throughout the years I have seen many more applications for cupping and a couple weeks ago was reminded of the amazing way cupping can vent a cold or flu right out of the body! My coworker Dori White, LMT also does cupping and I came in with the super sniffles, achey body and chills. Next day… gone! No lingering cold or upper respiratory infection for me. Yeah for cupping!!!
Cupping Can Help Treat:
- Chronic Pain
- Myofascial Stagnation
- Immune Support
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
Cupping can be even more effective when combined with acupuncture. Acupuncture works to balance the body and create homeostasis, cupping only furthers that process. I offer cupping or another form of body work with every acupuncture treatment I do. My favorite way to do cupping is “moving cups.” This is a style of cupping that uses oil or salve on the body first and then the cups are applied… super relaxing and nourishing. I actually use Rescue Rub salve first since it has many healing and anti-inflammatory properties for a more effective treatment.
