Helpful Information on Cupping Therapy in Toms River
Cupping therapy is a holistic, safe, and non-invasive treatment method that originates in ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. It is called cupping therapy because your treatment provider uses special cups on strategic areas of your body to create suction that eases pain and inflammation, and can improve blood flow, relaxation, and your overall sense of well-being.
At North Dover Chiropractic Wellness Centre, our experienced treatment providers offer holistic, all-natural, whole-body wellness care. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can benefit from cupping therapy in Toms River, give us a call.
Types of Cupping Therapy
The cups used in cupping therapy are typically made of glass, bamboo, clay, or silicone. There are also two different methods of cupping therapy: dry and wet. In both types, your treatment provider will put a flammable substance like alcohol, herbs, or paper inside one of the cups. They then set the substance on fire, and as the fire goes out, they place the cup upside down on your skin. As the air cools inside the cup, it creates a vacuum that encourages your blood vessels to expand. The cup can be left in place for up to three minutes.
Your treatment provider may use a rubber pump to create suction, rather than fire. Some treatment providers move the cups from place to place across your skin to increase the treatment area. For wet cupping therapy, the treatment provider removes the cup after three minutes and then uses a small scalpel to make cuts in the skin. Then a second suction is done to draw out toxins through the blood.
