Cupping Therapy Rate
- $30 for a 20 minute session
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Cupping therapy can leave red or purple circles on the patient’s back. The marks can last for 4-7 days. Make sure to drink a lot of water after your treatment to flush out the toxins that have released from the treatment.
Archaeologists have found evidence in China of cupping dating back to 1000 BC. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates (c. 400 BC) used cupping for internal disease and structural problems. This method in multiple forms spread into medicine throughout Asian and European civilizations.  In 1465, cupping was recommended Serefeddin Sabuncuoglu, a Turkish surgeon, and called it mihceme.
