Cupping is an ancient alternative medical technique used by many health practitioners to this day. Glass, plastic or silicone cups are suctioned onto the skin to create a negative pressure system which then encourages blood flow, promotes healing and reduces pain to the affected area. By using specific placement and sometimes movement, cupping is an extremely effective tool during treatments. Dr. Alisha uses cupping in her chiropractic appointments as a way to:
- Promote blood flow and increase circulation
- Relieve muscular tension and tightness
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Release toxins
- Speed up the healing process
- Promote Relaxation
- Calm muscular tension before a chiropractic adjustment
Cupping is an extremely safe practice with the biggest side effect being bruising on the skin. These bruises or “cup marks” are not dangerous and are usually painless. Depending on a person’s skin sensitivity, bruising lasts anywhere from 1-7 days. Many patients notice the benefits of cupping right away. When used in conjunction with chiropractic treatments, cupping is extremely effective in speeding up the healing process and relieving pain and tightness from a variety of muscles and areas in the body.
Currently, we have two therapists at Edgar Family Chiropractic who are certified to perform cupping: Dr. Alisha Nachman (Chiropractor) and Chelsey Scowen (Registered Massage Therapists). If you are interested in trying cupping, please call us at 289-337-120 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
