What is Cupping

If you recall watching the summer Olympics, you would have seen many swimmers with small red/purple circles on their shoulders, back, and thighs. These temporary bruises are due to a popular therapeutic technique called cupping.

Cupping therapy is done by placing cups on areas of the concern and creating suction in that specific area. The pressure underneath the cups helps to increase blood flow, decrease pain and inflammation, and treat chronic pain.

Cupping improves blood circulation in the area by attracting immune cells to a location to increase the repair and recovery process so that swelling can go down, and you can move to an optimal level.


Cupping can help with:

  • Back pain
  • Migraines
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Varicose veins
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Generalized pain
  • …and more!


Cupping is done with our Registered Massage Therapists and may be covered under your extended health benefits.
