CUPPING THERAPY

How Cupping Therapy Helps Heal Your Body from the Inside Out!

 

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping Therapy is an ancient alternative medicine therapy that utilizes special “cups” to create suction in specific locations of the body to increase blood flow and reduce pain and deep tissue inflammation within the body.

The cups are applied with heat, minimal pressure and suction which is caused by the heat within the cup when placed on the body. The origins of Cupping Therapy are believed to be around 1500 B.C. during the reign of the Egyptians. From then, each new culture has adopted and added more beneficial techniques to cupping therapies. Cupping Therapy has many roots to Acupuncture therapy as it follows the same 12 meridians that help align the bodies qi.

There are different types and sizes of cups that are utilized for Cupping Therapy.

Some cups use heat to create suction to the skin, while other cups use a vacuum cup to create suction without heat as seen in the picture above and below.

How does Cupping Therapy Work?

The skin is the biggest organ of the human body. Toxins in the body will float around in the layers of the skin and deep tissue. Cupping Therapy is said to “pull the unhealthy toxins up to the surface” allowing healthy blood and oxygen flow to the needed areas. This allows the toxins to be flushed out through the lymphatic system, kidneys and liver.

How long does it take for the Cupping Marks to Fade?

The cupping marks can last up to a week on the body. Most often, the cupping circles will start to fade within 3 days. If the person’s body is suffering from chronic pain or has high toxin levels or candida yeast, is extremely stressed, or other physical and mental ailments the cupping marks could last past a week on the skin.

We just received another great review on Yelp:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I found Dr Aaron Beck while looking for an alternative to help resolve a compressed disc in my neck. After trying PT and spine injections, which did not resolve my issue, I found ASFCA. I have utilized their spinal decompression machine as well as cold lazer and it’s helped me a great deal. Now my issue is 80% resolved and my pain level is much lower. Hoping to get to 100% soon. I am a believer and Dr Beck is great to work with."
