Learn more about ProMet PT’s approach to cupping therapy and how we help our patients get back to their best selves.

What Is Cupping Therapy and How Does It Work?

Cupping therapy Manhasset relies on specialized, silicon cups that are designed to provide powerful suction. Your therapist will place them strategically across your body and various pain points. A vacuum seal is created and draws your skin into the cups. After several minutes of sucking the superficial muscle layer, the cups are released. The overall goal of cupping is to stimulate blood flow to compacted muscles and areas that need better circulation.

Why Choose Cupping Therapy 

If you’re struggling with inflammation and finding deeper levels of relaxation, cupping therapy Manhasset can help. It works to relieve pain and reduce inflammation while combatting symptoms of fatigue. It’s a common type of therapy for athletes who need help stimulating blood flow in their backs and legs. However, it’s also appropriate for older patients, depending on the ailment. When cupping is used properly and aligned with a broader treatment plan, it can help drain body toxins that have built up while stimulating your nervous system for deeper healing. Cupping therapy may also be a good choice for lymphatic circulation and to see a reduction in varicose veins.

Can Anyone Try Cupping Therapy Manhasset?

Not necessarily, no. Although cupping therapy provides scores of benefits, it’s not a good choice for everyone seeking pain and inflammation relief. Make sure to disclose any pre-existing conditions, such as edema. If you bleed easily or suffer from skin ulcers, cupping may also aggravate your condition. Talk to the team at ProMet PT about your medical history and any concerns you have before taking the next steps toward cupping therapy.

What Does Cupping Feel Like?

Cupping therapy is not an invasive treatment, but can get uncomfortable. However, it should not be so painful that you can’t relax into the treatment. You may have some light bruising or red marks from the suction after your session, but should be able to get back to your day directly after your session. Talk to the team at ProMet PT if you’re especially sensitive to pain and communicate if you’re uncomfortable during therapy.

Another therapy option includes IASTM Technique. It works to enhance soft tissue mobilization and can help trigger healing by strategically breaking down capillary beds. It’s often an ideal therapy for athletes and is often used to introduce better blood flow to the injured area to amplify the healing process.
