Chinese Medicine at Glow

Cupping Therapy

Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that uses sterilized glass jars that are heated to create a vacuum and placed over muscular areas of the body. Cupping invigorates the flow of Qi (energy) and blood to relieve acute and chronic conditions, ease tension and pain and draw out toxins.

Who benefits from cupping therapy treatments?

At Glow, cupping therapy can be part of a patient's comprehensive health plan for treating:

  • Neck, upper and lower back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • All over body pain
  • The common cold
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

What to expect at a cupping therapy appointment at Glow

The effect is comparable to a very deep tissue massage. Cupping can leave small round red marks that last from a few hours to a few weeks but will not leave any permanent markings or discoloration.

When indicated, Cupping maybe incorporated with an acupuncture visit.
