Cupping

Cupping, also known as “microcirculation therapy or vacuum therapy,” is an ancient form of alternative medicine that places different sized cups on the area to be treated. Dr. Deb uses dry cupping in her practice using a hand pump so negative pressure is applied to the skin. The theory for dry cupping it to increase blood flow in the area by helping to build a capillary network. Most types of therapy compresses the skin and body where cupping distracts the skin to help lift and release the fascia underneath.

Cupping can be by placing them directly on the skin and letting them sit for a specific amount of time or can be used by moving them around the skin through a series of exercises known as “Massage Cupping.” Massage cupping can be sometimes be a better benefit for certain patient in pain management rather than compression.
