Benefits of Cupping Therapy

We offer a variety of modalities at Van Ness Chiropractic. A popular treatment we offer during our massages is called Cupping Therapy. Learn about the benefits of cupping therapy here.

The process involves placing a cup against a person’s skin and a partial vacuum is generated in the cup lifting muscle and tissue.  The traditional way of creating the vacuum is by heating the air inside the cup but nowadays a vacuum pump is utilized.  Cupping also helps with the flow of blood and is similar to deep-tissue massage.

 

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

People who have different skin diseases also benefit from cupping therapy. Cupping therapy aids in the creation of lymph fluids and is necessary for fighting off bacteria and various pathogens. This treatment purifies the skin and also helps strengthen the body’s defenses to protect itself from infections. Cupping therapy also helps improve the skin’s respiration and helps eliminate any toxic substances from the skin’s surface. Cupping also helps enhance the joints’ elasticity by boosting the flow of synovial fluid to them.

Finally, cupping therapy is beneficial to the nervous system. The body’s nervous system functions when neurons communicate with each other. When this happens, the brain can transmit signals to the other parts of the body. Cupping therapy helps the brain with the process of transmitting these signals. It works by eliminating any congestion in the brain which may result in complications. When the brain is healthy, it is able to transmit signals well.

Usually, the treatment lasts for 10-15 minutes. Areas of the body which are inflamed and painful will benefit significantly from cupping. This is because it eases congestion, allowing the blood of the body to flow better. Cupping can be done every day and cup tensions can vary from strong, medium or light.

Cupping may sometimes cause temporary marks on the skin. This is because the blood in the body is brought to the skin’s surface.  Give this treatment option a try today and ask our doctors if you have any questions.
