Cupping Therapy in Edison
Decrese Your Pain
If you have never heard of cupping, you can think of it as the inverse of massage. Cupping helps to add more blood to sore muscles which helps relieve any pain, inflammation, as well as with relaxation. The suction of cupping uses pressure to pull skin, tissue, and muscle upward rather than applying pressure. At Profysio, our specialists utilize silicone cups on the skin to create a vacuum by suctioning out the air. We recommend cupping to our patients because it is low risk and can be a good treatment, most specifically for reducing pain.
What Does Cupping Involve?
Cupping is the practice of placing cups onto the skin and creating a suction effect. It creates a stretching of the tissue or distraction through negative pressure. This serves to increase blood flow to the area where the cups are placed and may reduce muscle tension, promote cell repair and improve blood flow and tissue oxygenation.
Cupping also stimulates the mechanoreceptors in the tissue, which sends increased neuro-sensory input to the brain to promote improved muscular output, thus reducing pain.
What Can Cupping Treat?
Cupping can be used to treat:
- Myofascial pain
- Muscle tightness
- Joint stiffness
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder tendonitis and impingement
- Knee pain
- Sports Injuries
- Foot and ankle pain
