Cupping is a non invasive procedure that can relieve muscle pain and tension. It involves using cups which can be made of glass, bamboo, or silicone.


Glass or plastic cups are commonly used and placed on tight or painful muscles to release tension and induce natural pain relief.


The suction that is created with the cups help stimulate blood flow and improve healing. 


Does cupping hurt?

Some people report feeling a slight discomfort or pressure during cupping, but it is generally not considered to be a painful procedure.  However, the level of discomfort can vary depending on factors such as individual's pain threshold, the amount of suction applied, and the specific areas of the body being treated.  

The suction can also cause the skin to become red or purple, and in some cases, can cause a circular mark to appear that may last for a few days.

The appearance of cupping marks can vary depending on the individual and the intensity of the suction used during cupping session.  Some people may not experience any marks at all, while others may have noticeable circular marks that range in color from light pink to dark purple.  


  • How long is each session?
    The first session is 60 minutes and follow up session is 30 minutes long and provides a relaxing and healing experience.
  • How many treatment will I need and what is the after care like?
    Even though you may have less pain after your first visit, I recommend four more sessions to continue the pain relief treatment. Pain affects not only our physical bodies but our energy levels, and continued acupuncture also helps with stress and emotional balance. I also guide you through my self acupressure plan for acupressure that you can implement at home. By simply pressing on key parts of the body, you can lower your pain and feel better throughout the week.
  • What are some of the side effects that I may experience during and after acupuncture?
    You may experience some soreness or tenderness, but this is common to any acupuncture method. These usually go away within 24 to 48 hours. After acupuncture, you may feel little tired or like taking a nap. This is a natural way for your body to accelerate the healing process. Most people feel energized and relaxed at the same time afterwards!
