Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy at Colonia Spine & Wellness

Our chiropractors and specialists at Colonia Spine & Wellness are certified, experienced, and highly skilled in performing cupping therapy. The principle behind cupping therapy is to lift the upper layer of the muscle using suction to improve circulation into the muscle. Cupping therapy is used for pain relief, relaxation, inflammation, and to improve muscle mobility. Our team in Colonia can provide patients painless cupping therapy experiences.


What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy offers you an alternate form of medicine. It might have gained popularity in the modern era, but it has been part of medicine since ancient times. Studies show that ancient Egyptian and Chinese cultures used cupping therapy for various medical ailments. The suction cups used for cupping can be made from glass, bamboo, earthenware, or silicone.

There are two basic categories of cupping, dry cupping and wet cupping. In both these categories, the cups are warmed and placed on your body. As the cup cools, it creates a vacuum, sucking the skin. Cupping can be done on a focused area of the body or done through the entire body. In wet cupping, the therapist will make a small, light incision to draw out some blood. This helps the body detox and generate fresh blood.

On the other hand, dry cupping doesn't involve any incisions. After wet cupping, our therapist might prescribe antibiotic treatment and a bandage to prevent any infection. These therapy types are done by certified and highly-skilled specialists.

How We Can Help

Our team at Colonia Spine & Wellness offers patients a personalized plan for cupping therapy. We will understand your reasons for getting cupping therapy and design a program most suited to your requirements. Along with cupping therapy, we might recommend certain other forms of massage therapy or lifestyle changes to improve your overall health and well-being.

Increased blood flow to an area of soreness through cupping results in increased availability of the necessary building blocks for healing. Cupping can also improve the outcomes of chiropractic care. This therapy is painless. However, you might experience marks around where each cup is placed. These marks usually go away within a few days, which means they are things you shouldn't be worried about.
