Cupping Therapy Services at West Loop Spine and Stability
Our chiropractors and physical therapist at West Loop Spine and Stability are certified, experienced, and highly skilled in performing cupping therapy. The principle behind cupping therapy is to lift the upper layer of the muscle using suction to improve circulation into the muscle. Cupping therapy is used for pain relief, relaxation, inflammation, and to improve muscle mobility. We serve regions of the Greater Chicago area, including Gold Coast, West Loop, South Loop, River North, Ukrainian Village, and Streeterville.
What Is Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy offers you an alternate form of medicine. It might have gained popularity in the modern era, but it has been part of medicine since ancient times. Studies show that ancient Egyptian and Chinese cultures used cupping therapy for various medical ailments. The suction cups used for cupping can be made from glass, bamboo, earthenware, or silicone.
There are two basic categories of cupping, dry cupping and wet cupping. In both these categories, the cups are warmed and placed on your body. As the cup cools, it creates a vacuum, sucking the skin. Cupping can be done on a focused area of the body or done through the entire body. In wet cupping, the therapist will make a small, light incision to draw out some blood. This helps the body detox and generate fresh blood.
On the other hand, dry cupping doesn't involve any incisions. After wet cupping, our therapist might prescribe antibiotic treatment and bandage to prevent any infection. These therapy types are done by certified, training, and highly-skilled therapists. The procedures are safe.
