Cupping Therapy


How Cupping Can Benefit You

Cupping Therapy | Lakewood Community Acupuncture in Lakewood, Colorado

Cupping is an amazing and unique therapeutic approach to healing that can dramatically reduce most types of pain. The back, shoulders, legs and hips are some of the most common areas people come in to receive cupping. This valuable healing modality is also used to treat common colds, asthma and allergies while opening the lungs and diaphragm to allow free passage of the breath. Cupping has been practiced as an effective medicine throughout history from China to Argentina for thousands of years! If you have any tightness or pain in the body, this therapeutic technique might just be one of your favorite tools for relief.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is the use of small glass, plastic or bamboo cups as suction devices placed on the skin. This suction, or negative pressure, draws oxygen rich blood to the local area, while breaking up adhesions and stretching fascia and tissue.  It is effective for many types of painful conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Cups can also serve as a “non-needle approach” to stimulate acupuncture points when patients are sensitive to needles.
