Cupping Therapy in Monmouth County & Middlesex County

Decrease 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.

Currently, we offer cupping therapy at our East Brunswick and Old Bridge locations.

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

  • “Not only do you get Professional care, but the staff make you feel like family”
    I had total knee replacement.The care and attention I receive from physical therapists Anthony and assistant Christian was excellent. They pushed me to get to where I had to be in a very caring way. The staff was excellent starting with Lynn, Tess, Amanda and Phill. The facility is COVID compliant and very clean with all the latest equipment. My two son have been to Profysio in the past with sport injuries and they got them back on the basketball court and football field sooner than expected. As a retired Deputy Chief of the Fire Department I totally recommend Profysio

  • “Wonderful and Patient”
    If I could give 10000 stars, I would! I have been seen Dr. George and Dr. Jenni at ProFysio for the past six weeks or so. Dr. George and Jenni go out of their way to make sure that I am comfortable and have all of my questions answered. They are lovely to speak with at every appointment. I had a wonderful, and warm experience from start to finish. ProFysio is the place for those who wanted to be free of chronic pains and live a healthy life.
