Chinese Cupping Therapy

Another exciting development at Perfect Teeth!

We now offer Chinese Cupping Therapy by a trained cupping therapist. This is an ancient wellness treatment which can help:

Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

It focuses on the movement of blood and lymph enabling the body to heal itself.  Another healing aspect of cupping therapy is through the release of stagnant toxins in your body. The suction from the cups can penetrate deep into your tissues causing the tissues to release harmful toxins out of your system. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin. It has been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, activating the lymphatic system, clearing colon blockages, helping to activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin. That is why many believe that cupping is the best deep tissue massage available.

The method of delivery for this kind of treatment makes use of glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum mainly performed on the back. 

Cupping Therapy may leave a circular mark on the body which lasts for about 4-10 days depending on the condition. The mark is very useful as a diagnostic tool – the darker the mark, the more stagnation there is in the muscles. Cupping massage can also act as a ‘hoover’ allowing the tissue to be lifted upwards and changing the pressure on underlying tissues, such as skin, fat, nerves, and fascia to help restore movement.
