Your Guide to Cupping Therapy

What does a Naturopathic Doctor do?

Here's what you need to know about a Naturopath who utilizes cupping therapy:

Initial Assessment and Suitability

The therapist begins by assessing the client's health history and concerns to determine if cupping therapy is suitable. They discuss medical conditions, allergies, and medications that may impact treatment.

Procedure Explanation and Client Comfort

Suction Creation and Treatment

The therapist creates suction inside the cups, either through heat or a mechanical device. The cups are then placed on the skin, gently pulling the skin and underlying tissues upward to create the desired suction effect. Cups may remain in place or be moved to target specific areas.

Monitoring Comfort and Adjustments

Throughout the session, the therapist monitors the client's comfort level and adjusts the cups as needed.

Aftercare and Soothing

After the treatment, they may also provide aftercare instructions for the client to follow, ensuring a holistic healing experience.

How does Cupping Therapy work?

Cupping therapy is a holistic healing technique that has been practiced for centuries in various cultures around the world. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction, which helps stimulate blood flow and promote healing in the targeted areas. The cups are traditionally made of glass, bamboo, or silicone and can be either stationary or moved along the skin.

The primary goal of cupping therapy is to improve circulation and alleviate muscle tension and pain. The suction created by the cups helps to increase blood flow to the area, bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to the tissues while removing toxins and waste products. This can result in reduced inflammation, improved range of motion, and accelerated healing.

Cupping therapy is often used as a complementary treatment alongside other therapies such as physiotherapy, chiropractic care, and naturopathy. It is commonly employed to address musculoskeletal conditions, such as back pain, neck pain, and muscle strains. Additionally, cupping therapy has been reported to provide relief for digestive disorders and stress-related ailments.
