Cupping Therapy

Our chiropractors at MCR Chiropractic are 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 as well as to reduce adhesion in the underlying fascia. Cupping therapy is used for pain relief, relaxation, inflammation, and to improve mobility. Many of our locations can provide patients painless cupping therapy experiences. Call the MCR clinic nearest you to find out if cupping is available.

What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy compliments the traditional treatments you receive with our chiropractors. 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 ailments. The suction cups used for cupping can be made from glass, bamboo, earthenware, or silicone.

During a cupping treatment with one of our chiropractors, the cups are placed on your body, creating a vacuum, sucking the skin. Cupping can be done on a focused area of the body or done through the entire body. The cups may be left stationary, or they may move along your skin in a sliding or gliding motion.

How We Can Help

Our team at MCR Chiropractic offers patients a personalized plan for cupping therapy.  After your evaluation we will design a program most suited to your goals and needs.  Along with adjustments and cupping therapy, we might recommend certain other therapies or lifestyle changes to improve your overall health and well-being.

This therapy is painless. However, you might experience marks around where each cup is placed. These marks usually go away within a few days and are typically harmless.
