At Grand Madison Acupuncture, we’re proud to offer ancient Chinese cupping as part of our comprehensive suite of traditional East Asian medicine therapies. This time-honored treatment has been used for over 2,000 years and has recently gained widespread recognition thanks to its endorsement by celebrities and athletes worldwide.

Cupping is a unique therapy where cups are applied to the skin to create a vacuum. This suction effectively loosens the fascia and connective tissue, removes blockages, boosts blood flow, and promotes healing. By increasing blood circulation and eliminating stagnation, cupping brings accumulated toxins to the surface, allowing your body to naturally process them.

Although cupping may leave temporary marks typically lasting up to one week, this is a positive sign of therapeutic results, indicating the movement of stagnant blood and improved circulation. With repeated sessions, stagnation should resolve, resulting in decreased bruising

Discover the Benefits of Cupping

Cupping offers relief for a wide range of conditions. It’s shown to be effective for pain relief, muscle relaxation, breaking up adhesions and scar tissue, treating common colds and respiratory issues, and alleviating general circulatory problems. It also helps release heat in certain inflammatory conditions. When performed with a sliding technique on the back, cupping can soothe large muscle groups, offering an experience similar to a deep tissue massage.

At Grand Madison Acupuncture, our experienced practitioners apply a combination of sliding and stationary cups. We first apply a massage oil or herbal liniment to facilitate the gliding of the cups. The cups are then left on for anywhere from 5-20 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.
