30-minute Cupping Session for Only $40*

What is cupping?

Catherine Lu, our highly-trained and licensed acupuncturist, uses cups to create suction over targeted areas of the skin to stimulate muscle healing and move stagnant energy. This suction, often seen as reverse massage, enhances circulation, relieves pain, and pulls toxins lingering in your body’s tissue. Cupping is effective for sore muscles or knots, and a popular modality among Olympians and professional athletes.

Is cupping painful?

Patients typically feel a tight sensation under the cup but describe it as relaxing and soothing. Depending on your comfort level and Catherine’s assessment of the problem, cups may be moved around or left in place. Each treatment is unique to you during that specific day. Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, especially if there is an injury or energy block under the cupping area. Skin discoloration can last from a few days to a few weeks, but is rarely painful. Once the marks have cleared, the procedure can be repeated until the condition or ailment is resolved.

Is cupping right for me?

Give cupping a try! It often works well for patients suffering from flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, allergies, fevers, aches and other pains. Always check with your physician before beginning any type of therapy, including cupping.
