Our Chicago Chiropractor Explains Cupping Therapy and How is it Used

Cupping therapy involves the use of specialized suction cups on the skin. Also referred to as Chinese cupping therapy this is an ancient healing practice that has been in practice for centuries. It is used to treat pain, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation in the body. Our patients also request cupping therapy as a form of deep tissue massage, as it is a relaxing form of therapy. Cupping therapy is completely safe for patients. It is a safe and effective treatment method that does not require prescription medications or surgery to treat affected areas.
