In recent decades cupping therapy has increased in popularity, but cupping is rooted in ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. It is an alternative form of medicine used to heal and alleviate many health conditions.

At Body Mind Wellness Acupuncture, our doctors have the expertise and skill to help you successfully feel your best. As a team, our goal is to help you feel better, heal and balance the body and soul, look your best and laugh again.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist places specialized cups on specific areas of your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Almost everyone can benefit from cupping therapy. It is a versatile treatment tailored to treat your condition, whether you need deep tissue massage or lymphatic drainage.
Cupping can help address the symptoms that accompany conditions such as:
- Arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis
- Migraines and headaches
- Anxiety and depression
- Gastrointestinal disorders, like IBS
- Muscle tension or fatigue
- Back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Breathing problems, such as asthma
Cupping therapy helps removes toxins within the body. Even if you adhere to a healthy diet and lifestyle, you still build up toxins in your body that cupping may help alleviate. It removes these impurities and catalyzes your body’s natural detoxification process, helping regulate your digestive and nervous systems. Cupping therapy is an element of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include acupuncture and gua sha.
The increase in blood flow encouraged by cupping can promote healing and speed up the recovery process.
