How does cupping therapy work?

A cup is placed on the skin and a suction pressure difference is formed. Sometimes the cups stay in one place, and sometimes they are moved while on (dynamic). There is no blood, but often times there is a painless bruise left afterwards. We target specific muscles individual to each patient, depending on the reason for your visit. Chiropractic cupping therapy is great for tension, repairing tissue, and overall relaxation.
