What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy, following a few thousand years of use, development, and perfection, has been increasingly accepted by a variety of cultures and people. Cupping therapy is, like massage, effective against general malaise symptoms, such as chronic headaches, dizziness, mental or physical weariness/exhaustion, stiff shoulders, fatigue, etc.

At NHRC, Cupping therapy is provided by a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, who combines the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

How does cupping therapy work?

Cupping therapy stimulates the sensory nerves of the skin. Treatment on the back is mainly directed to the central line (spinal nerves and parasympathetic nerves) and the sympathetic nerves beside it.

The stimulation of these may have a positive influence on the autonomic nervous system and also on various organs under its control. Cupping therapy is often combined with other therapeutic modalities (nutrition/lifestyle counseling, chiropractic, physiotherapy, rehabilitation) to provide optimal outcomes.
