What is Cupping & How Does It Work?

Cupping is an ancient healing practice that has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the placement of special cups on specific areas of the body. These cups can be made of glass, silicone, or plastic.

It is believed in traditional Chinese medicine that cupping helps to balance the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”) in the body. Qi is considered the vital energy that flows through meridian channels. When Qi is blocked or imbalanced, it is believed to contribute to various health problems. Cupping is thought to help restore the proper flow of Qi, promoting harmony and well-being.

Cupping can be performed in different forms, including stationary cupping, where the cups remain in place for a set duration, and moving cupping, where the cups are glided along the skin using oil or massage techniques. The specific technique used will depend on your individual needs and the practitioner’s expertise. At DrSkin Med Spa, our skilled practitioners are trained in the art of cupping and will provide you with a safe and effective treatment tailored to your specific needs.

Who Is Cupping For?

Cupping therapy is suitable for a wide range of individuals seeking natural and holistic health solutions. It can benefit people who experience:

  • Muscular tension and pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint stiffness
  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Poor circulation
  • Detoxification needs

Our practitioners will assess your specific needs and customize the cupping treatment to address your unique concerns.

What Are The Benefits of Cupping?

There are many reasons why you should consider scheduling a cupping appointment at DrSkin. Here are some of the key benefits that will keep you coming back for more:

  • Pain Relief: Cupping helps alleviate muscle and joint pain by improving blood flow and releasing tension in the affected areas. It can be particularly effective for conditions such as back pain, neck and shoulder tension, and sports-related injuries.
  • Reduced Inflammation: Cupping can help reduce inflammation in the body, making it beneficial for conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. By increasing blood flow, it supports the body’s natural healing processes.
  • Relaxation: Leave your session feeling calmer. You may also sleep better after your cupping session.
  • Detoxification: Cupping helps draw out metabolic waste and other toxins from the tissues. 
  • Improved Circulation: The suction of the cups stimulates healthy blood circulation, thereby delivering nutrients and oxygen to the tissues. 

What to Expect From a Cupping Treatment

On the day of your cupping treatment, you will arrive at DrSkin Med Spa to get checked in. Our friendly team will show you to a private room and ensure that you are comfortable. From there, the process is straightforward. The practitioner taking care of you will run through your specific concerns and determine which techniques are best to meet your needs. Depending on which region of the body is being treated, you may be asked to lay down. 

The cups will then be placed on the targeted areas. The suction may create a tight sensation or a gentle pulling feeling, but you should experience little to no pain. If anything, the gentle stretch will be relaxing. After the desired time, the cups will be gently removed, and any residual marks (circular bruises) or discoloration will fade over time.

You are free to continue on with your day after your treatment. That said, there are some specific aftercare requirements, such as avoiding exposure to extreme temperatures, drinking plenty of water, and engaging in light movement or stretching. 

Are There Any Contraindications?

While cupping is generally safe, there are a few contraindications to consider. Cupping may not be suitable if you have:

  • Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, or sunburn in the treatment area
  • Open wounds, cuts, or abrasions on the skin
  • Varicose veins or aneurysms
  • A bleeding disorder or are taking blood-thinning medications
  • Pregnancy or menstruation (specific areas may be avoided during these times)
  • A history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or other circulatory disorders

It is essential to inform your cupping practitioner about any existing medical conditions, medications, or concerns you may have to ensure your safety and the effectiveness of the treatment.
