We’re Trusted Providers of Cupping Therapy in Thornton, CO

Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese treatment based on the belief that stagnant blood and poor energy flow in the body can cause health challenges. Practitioners apply silicone or glass cups on the back and they suck the skin inward. This draws blood to the affected area and increases overall blood flow. The cupping points can be major acupressure or acupuncture points.

Cupping therapy is usually used to treat chronic pain but it can help with several conditions. It can be done dry or wet. With both methods, the practitioner puts a cup upside down on the skin and creates suction. However, in wet cupping, small cuts are made in the skin using a tiny scalpel. A second suction is used to release a small amount of blood.

Explore the Many Cupping Therapy Benefits

Cupping continues to be popular because there are several unique cupping therapy benefits. Cupping therapy can help you recover from injuries faster. This is because it:

  • Increases circulation
  • Increases delivery of oxygen to tissues
  • Triggering helpful inflammation
  • Stretching fascia and connective tissue

Cupping can also alleviate symptoms associated with:

  • Blood disorders
  • Rheumatic disorders
  • Skin conditions
  • Respiratory conditions
  • Gastrointestinal disorders

If you’re intrigued by these cupping therapy benefits, you may be wondering what to expect. While some practitioners use heat, others prefer to create suction with rubber pumps. With dry cupping, the cups stay in place for 5 to 10 minutes. With wet cupping, the cups are only in place for a few minutes before the incision is made. The previously cupped areas may be covered with ointment and bandages to prevent infection. Side effects include dizziness, sweating, nausea, scarring of the skin and bruising.
