Dynamic Cupping

Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice where the air is removed from a cup, which is then placed on the patient’s skin. Dynamic cupping, also known as cupping-with movement, is used to treat certain types of fascial distortions causing muscle pain. Once cups are in place, the underlying muscles are contracted and taken through a range of motion. The assists in releasing tissue tensions and results in pain relief.

Cupping is relatively painless, but can leave temporary circular marks where the cups were applied.
