Cupping therapy may have only gained national attention recently, but it has been used for over 3,000 years to treat various illnesses. In fact, cupping is listed in the Ebers Papyrus, an Egyptian medical document dating to circa 1550 B.C. Today, massage therapists utilize a refined form of cupping to alleviate musculoskeletal pain and provide a relaxing massage. Duncan Chiropractic Group's expert cupping therapists will relieve your pain and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is a simple massage therapy for improving circulation and relieving pain. Basically, a massage therapist places glass or plastic bulbs on a patient's back that produce a mild suction effect on the skin. The result is something of a "reverse massage" - rather than pushing your skin downwards, it is gently lifted up into the bulbs. The massage is painless and most patients actually find it quite relaxing.
