Cupping

Cupping

Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medical technique that uses the suction of plastic, glass or bamboo cups to lift body tissue and move fluids. In Traditional Chinese Medical Theory, it is used to move stagnated Qi and Blood or to Release Wind and Toxins. From a Western perspective, this method works on many different biological systems from blocked capillaries and stiff muscles to sluggish lymphatic systems. Because of its versatility, cupping can be used for many different conditions including but not limited to Allergies, the Common Cold, Stress Relief, Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain and Acute Sports Injuries.

While cupping may feel very releasing on tight muscles and has been compared to experiencing a deep tissue massage, it can leave dark bruise-like marks. The color and intensity of these marks can reflect the severity of a person’s condition.

While cupping has been used in Asia for centuries, it has been gaining popularity in the United States as a safe, relaxing and quick treatment. In the last decade more movie stars, NFL players and Olympians have been photographed with the iconic circular marks on their backs. After your initial consultation with an Acupuncturist, they will decide if cupping is a good treatment option for you.

Some Amazing Patients

"I went to Kalpesh for anxiety and depression. I was very nervous, but thankfully he was very easy to talk to and quickly put me at ease. The acupuncture was painless and I left feeling relieved and happy. The next morning I felt amazing and woke up with energy for the first time in quite a while. I would definitely recommend On Point Acupuncture for anyone whose experiencing pain, physical or otherwise."
