Asheville Doula: Cupping Therapy

Did you know that we offering Cupping Therapy at Silver Leaf Natural Medicine?

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being.

The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

Cupping is different than a massage in that it lifts the muscle which can increase blood flow and relax the tight area.
