What is Massage Cupping and How Can it Help You?

This technique is based on ancient Chinese practices that utilize glass or plastic cups that create a negative vacuum on the back. This practice allows your chiropractor to treat areas where typical compression therapy would actually increase your back pain. If you are living in the greater 60423 area and are interested in learning more about this effective technique, Advanced Chiropractic Wellness is here to answer your questions. Some of the many benefits include lymphatic drainage, loosening of adhesions, increased blood circulation, calming of the nervous system, and release in the deep tissue areas of your body.

Our chiropractic care offers different treatment modalities in order to best serve our patients' needs most effectively. We can review the benefits of cupping with you and help you to determine if this technique is appropriate for your needs.

How is Massage Cupping Used?

This technique can be applied throughout your entire back or in specific areas of pain. Massage cupping has been proven effective in patients who experience joint and soft tissues areas that can be challenging to address. The soft tissues and connective tissue is loosened which allows blood to flow more freely throughout the area thus relieving pain and discomfort that is caused by tightness in those areas. The technique also addresses lymphatic fluid build-up and stagnation that can cause you to feel sluggish and experience periods of low energy. Yes, you may have some circle marks on your back or other treated area caused by the vacuum nature of the technique. These marks should not alarm you and they are not painful, it is a result of the vacuum suction being broken when the cups are removed.
