Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient healing method belonging to traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the application of cups to specific areas of the body, in which negative pressure is applied, pulling up the skin, and drawing nutrient-dense blood into the underlying tissues. Dr. Becca uses static cupping in which the cups are placed on the area for up to five minutes at a time, or dynamic cupping, in which the cup is moved along the skin’s surface.

Here is a list of some of the benefits of cupping:
