Answering your most asked questions so you can be prepared.

How does it work?

Special glass cups are used and the flame is lit inside the cup before quickly placing the cup on the patient’s body. Heat is not felt on the skin. A lack of oxygen creates the suction necessary for therapeutic benefit. During a cupping procedure, the patient should experience a warm, pulling, stretching sensation, but no pain.

Once the suction has occurred on the skin, the cups can be gently moved across the skin (sliding cupping) or left still (stationary cupping).

How long does it take?

The procedure takes about 15 minutes and is commonly combined with localized trigger point therapy.
