Thousands of years old, cupping isn’t in fact a new treatment. Connected to traditional Chineses medicine, this holistic therapy is once again in good graces. Cupping is believed to help treat many different health issues, including headaches and migraines, acne, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, or aid in alleviating pain. There are a few types of cupping–dry, wet, and fire. Even though they slightly differ, the overall idea behind each type remains the same. A cup is placed on the targeted area and next, by creating a vacuum, the skin is drawn into the cup. If you’re interested in trying out this alternative therapy, you’ve come to the right place!

What is cupping?

What is cupping?

Cupping is a centuries-old method of therapy that may help with various health problems like skin issues, muscle and joint pain, migraines, or high blood pressure. It is accomplished by placing a cup on the treated area and creating a vacuum that sucks in the skin. This is believed to be the effect of the patient's blood vessels expanding, thus improving blood and lymph flow. Depending on the treated area, the therapist may use up to 5 or 7 cups during one session. What to expect from a cupping session? A cupping appointment will always vary, based on what area of the body, and what health issue, is being treated. Upon arrival you will lie face down or face up on a table. Using a chosen method of application, the therapist will place the cup on your body and draw your skin into it. Usually the cup is left on the skin for up to ten minutes. The appointment shouldn’t be painful, at most can be perceived as mild discomfort. How do you prepare for a cupping treatment? First of all, make sure you’ll be going to a trained cupping therapist. Do research and talk to the therapist beforehand if you have any doubts. On the day of the treatment opt for light food and consider fasting on the last two to three hours before coming in. Once at the appointment, mention any health issues you have, or you want to treat. Finally, expect your skin to turn red and for some bruising to show up after the treatment.  How do I make an appointment for a cupping treatment? A great and easy way to do this is by using Booksy!
