Cupping

Cupping, or myofascial decompression, is a centuries' old method that uses suction to increase circulation, decrease inflammation, boost the immune system and detoxify the body. Many athletes find cupping particularly helpful for injury rehab, tight muscles, and adhesions.

 

During a cupping session the practitioner places glass or plastic cups on the skin to create a vacuum. The cup then lifts the skin, tissue, and muscles upward lifting and separating the fascia. Depending on the patient's needs the cups are left in place for a short period of time, known as dry cupping, or gently moved, known as gliding.

 

Elemental Acu offers cupping paired with an acupuncture session or as an independent treatment.
