Cupping Therapy

About Cupping Therapy 

Cupping therapy is usually provided by chiropractors, physiotherapists, and acupuncturists. It is a type of alternative therapy originating in China years ago. It increases blood circulation to the affected area, reduces muscle tension, and assists in skin glide between all the different layers underneath the skin. 

At Fulcrum Therapy, practitioners use dry cupping using Silicone or plastic cups that are non-invasive and safe.

It can help with muscle tension including sprain/strain injuries, chronic hypertonicity, reduced circulation, nerve compression, and reduced facial glide.  

How does cupping therapy work?

It releases tightness and tension from areas of the body with chronic tightness and lack of blood flow. It also helps with improved range of motion and reduction of pain. Not to mention it assists in skin glide between all the different layers underneath.

How long is a treatment?

Each treatment is usually between 10-30 minutes long depending on the practitioner and the type of cups used.

How often can I have treatments?

You can use cupping therapy every day as long as there is no adverse skin sensitivity developing. The longer you keep a cup on, the more time is advisable between cupping therapy sessions to allow the area cupped to heal.

Can treatments leave scars?

Cupping can leave some red circles where the blood was being pulled to the surface. Different individuals have different times that their bodies can clear those dark circles. For some, it lasts a few hours and for others, it can last a few days.

Can I shower after treatments?

Yes, there is no issue with showering afterward.

Dr. Kimiya is an amazing chiro, she never pushes for unnecessary treatments and always gives good recovery exercises to work on afterwards. She will help you find the root cause of problems rather than just managing symptoms, so you can have long term results!

Dr. Kimiya always makes me feel better. Her wealth of knowledge and technique have helped me so much in my recovery. Also, she’ll make time for you if you’re in desperate need of help! She made an appointment for me at the end of her work day and once moved things around so that she could squeeze me in. I’m so grateful for her help.

I recently visited Fulcrum Therapy for neck and hip treatment. Dr. Kimiya was very personable, knowledgeable and understanding. Dr. Kimiya was very informative throughout and provided me with at-home therapy options to help with long term treatment. I have been to many different chiropractors in the past and I can honestly say this was the best chiropractic treatment I have ever recieved. I look forward to continuing to visit Fulcrum Therapy in the future and I will be sure to recommend Fulcrum Therapy to my friends and family.
