Cupping Therapy NYC

Cupping, acupuncture, nyc, Linyana GipsonCupping is a very popular modality used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that dates back thousands of year just like Acupuncture. It's main purpose is for the treatment of pain; it works wonders to break scar tissue, release myofascial pain, and clear muscle tension and muscle knots, otherwise known as trigger points. Cupping is like to opposite of massage; instead of tissue compression by the hands of a massage therapist, acupuncturists use cupping to lift tissue and muscle giving more room for circulation.

For those suffering from tension headaches, stiff neck and tight shoulders, cupping will most likely always be used during treatment. Moving cupping is especially beneficial for tension headaches. Massage oil is placed on the skin and the cups are glided across the affected areas. The typical areas for cupping are upper back, shoulder and neck area, middle and lower back. Other locations on the body can be treated with cupping as well such as hamstrings, knees, gastrocnemius muscle, and the bottom of the feet for plantar fasciitis.

Internal conditions can also be treated with cupping. I've used cupping for patients going through a weight loss program as well as relieving a common cold. Cupping is a great way to increase circulation and boost the immune system.

Sometimes cupping can cause skin discoloration; this is perfectly normal. During a course of treatment with Acupuncture and Cupping Therapy, discoloration tends to decrease overtime due to improved circulation and decreased stagnation.

If you're in New York City and would like to stop by for cupping to relieve tight and achy shoulders, we'd love to happy. Treatments are very relaxing and quick, it'll have you feeling better in no time.
