Cupping is a type of alternative medicine used to help ease pain and enhance circulation. The technique applies suction cups to the skin along meridians and fascial restrictions. Cupping is often used to complement chiropractic care and soft tissue work, but is also offered as a stand-alone treatment.
Cupping Therapy is a treatment that allows a cup to go onto the skin creating a suction, that suction pulls blood to the surface stimulating the healing process. There are a few main benefits of cupping which include reducing inflammation, increasing circulation, improving neurological functions, neuromuscular re-education (with motion) and proper gliding of the fascia and the muscles..
At Bloch we utilize functional and static positions with cupping to give our patients an even range of motion resulting in pain relief in areas you normally would not be able to access alone.
