Cupping in Encinitas, Poway and Encinitas

Cupping therapy is an alternative medicine practice that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction is created by either heating the cups and then placing them on the skin, or by using a vacuum pump to draw air out of the cups.

Cupping therapy is often used for pain relief, promoting relaxation, and improving circulation. It is believed to work by increasing blood flow to the treated area and stimulating the body’s natural healing processes.

During a cupping session, the cups are typically left in place for a few minutes, and then removed. The practice can leave temporary bruises or red marks on the skin, which usually disappear within a few days.

Cupping therapy is generally considered safe when performed by a trained practitioner. However, it may not be appropriate for everyone, particularly individuals with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying cupping therapy.
