Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy creates a suction effect by connecting plastic cups to negative pressure and placing them on the skin. Cups are left on the skin for up to 20 minutes, drawing stagnant blood and toxins from the deep tissues. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, as rejuvenated healthy circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients to the area.

This technique effectively treats muscle pain, inflammation, circulation issues and other common soft-tissue conditions. Cupping is also a great complement to Chiropractic and Physical Therapy treatment. Our track record of success has made Austin Preferred a popular destination for Cupping Therapy in Austin, Texas.

Effects of Cupping Therapy:

The marks left behind by Cupping Therpy are a hallmark of the procedure. These spots occur as static blood, cells and toxins emerge from the deeper tissues. They are generally painless and subside in 3-5 days, though we recommend you keep the marks covered for up to two days after treatment. This procedure also opens up the pores of the skin, which may result in mild sensitivity to cold. Lightheadedness and dizziness can also occur, but usually subside after altering the the suction.

Cupping Therapy is available without health insurance. Those interested in this procedure can call (512) 442-2727 to schedule an appointment at Austin Preferred.
