Cupping Therapy at Aligned Modern Health
Cupping therapy is a popular and effective healing technique that is offered within our acupuncture services. Cupping can be used to address a broad range of symptoms and pain relief.
How does cupping work?
The technique works when cups are placed on the skin to create a vacuum effect. Placement is often on the back, neck, and shoulders – near the site of pain.
Cupping therapy works to promote healing by increasing blood and loosening the fascia and connective tissue within the affected area. Below the surface, cupping creates a vacuum that draws stagnant blood and other fluids away, so that healthy circulation can be restored.
