Sports Cupping

Sports Cupping

Cupping Therapy, or Sports Cupping, is a healing treatment modality in which small glass, rubber, or silicone domes (cups) are positioned in the treatment area to create suction. Using heat or a pump, a vacuum effect is created. This suction can penetrate up to four inches into your tissues, activating the lymphatic system, the veins, arteries, and capillaries, and the skin to encourage your tissues to release toxins, enhance blood flow, and boost the natural healing process.

Although it is sometimes referred to as Sports Cupping for its efficacy at detoxification and recovery after athletic performance, this effective therapy can benefit anyone by relieving muscle tension and soreness and facilitating optimal function and movement. Cupping Therapy is recognized for its tell-tale dark circle in the treatment area that can appear as perfectly circular bruises. Cupping Therapy is a low-risk option to add to your treatment plan.
