The Cupping Therapy: Harnessing Ancient Healing Techniques for Modern Well-Being

Cupping therapies are a centuries-old healing practice used to alleviate various health conditions. At Acupuncture in Santa Monica in Santa Monica, CA, we provide professional cupping therapy services to help you reap the many benefits of this ancient practice. To deliver a rejuvenating and therapeutic experience, our skilled practitioners combine ancient wisdom with modern techniques.

What Exactly Is Cupping?

Cupping involves using cups to create a suction effect on the skin. These cups can be made of various materials, including glass, bamboo, and silicone. The cups’ suction draws the skin and underlying tissues upward, creating a gentle pulling sensation. This technique stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, increasing blood circulation and relieving muscle tension.

There are three types of cupping services, and our practitioners provide them all. There is traditional cupping, silicone cupping, and massage cupping. Here is more about each technique:

  • Traditional Cupping

Suction is created on specific areas of the body by using heated glass or bamboo cups. It removes toxins, improves circulation, and encourages deep relaxation.

  • Silicone Cupping

A gentler alternative to traditional cupping using flexible silicone suction cups. Silicone cups are ideal for sensitive skin or those seeking a milder sensation while providing similar benefits in promoting circulation and relaxation.

  • Massage Cupping

Cupping therapy is combined with massage techniques. Our practitioners use oiled cups to glide over the skin, creating a one-of-a-kind massage experience that combines the benefits of cupping with the stress-relieving effects of massage.

Benefits of Cupping

The cupping service offers a range of great benefits for both your mental and physical well-being. Some of them include but are not limited to paint relief, improved blood circulation, stress reduction, detoxification, and enhanced skin health.
