Cupping in Burlington

Cupping is a traditional alternative medicine technique utilized by ancient cultures including those in the Middle East and China. The process involves placing cups, made of materials like glass, plastic, or silicone, on the skin to create suction. This suction aims to enhance blood circulation, alleviate pain, and promote healing by drawing blood to the targeted area.


What Are Some Health Benefits?

Cupping is not only effective for managing pain but also offers additional health advantages. It can alleviate conditions like chronic back pain, migraines, respiratory disorders such as asthma and bronchitis, and more. The improved circulation from cupping sessions enhances oxygen distribution, boosting the immune system and increasing disease resistance.

Beyond physical health, cupping is known for inducing deep relaxation, much like a deep-tissue massage, helping to reduce stress and elevate mood.

What to Expect

During a cupping therapy session at The Healing Path Chiropractic and Wellness Centre, our practitioner Yanrong typically begins by heating small glass cups, which can also be made of different materials. Once heated, these cups are quickly applied to the skin, typically on the back, creating a vacuum as they cool. This suction draws the skin slightly into the cup, which is believed to stimulate blood flow and ease muscle tension.

The cups are usually left in place for five to fifteen minutes. Patients often feel a gentle pulling sensation, and it’s generally not painful. After the session, circular marks from the cups might be visible on the skin, but these are temporary. The overall experience is meant to be relaxing and therapeutic, and many find it helps alleviate symptoms of pain and inflammation.
