What is cupping therapy?

cupping therapy cupsCupping therapy is the creation of a suction force to pull blood into the skin. It is categorized as traditional and complementary medicine, and the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledges it. Cupping therapy (also known just as cupping) has very few side effects, if any.

Cupping is not a new phenomenon. The Ebers Papyrus, the Egyptian medical book, recommends cupping for fever, poor appetite, and pain. In Chinese tradition, Ge Hong uses the technique in his healing practices. In Ancient Greece, Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, recommended cupping for ailments such as angina

Benefits of our cupping therapy treatment in West Los Angeles

Cupping therapy provides an excellent release for certain conditions making it the treatment of choice for many athletes, firefighters, people with sedentary desk jobs, students, and elderly patients. This method has achieved outstanding results for various illnesses such as whiplash, migraine headaches, chronic muscle and skeletal pain, “frozen shoulder,” carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sleep problems, and stress. Consequently, cupping treatment is a method that achieves excellent results without the use of more invasive treatments. One reason for this is that all the bodily systems are involved in the treatment process. Recovery only occurs by stimulating the body’s internal resources. There is a strong correlation between the health of the skin and the overall health of a human being. Cupping therapy helps enhance blood flow and improves the supply of nutrients to the body, thus keeping it healthy. In connection with this, cupping therapy can help in getting rid of skin diseases such as acne. Cupping therapy has been used for the treatment of various lung disorders. These include coughs, asthma, and bronchial congestion. Cupping therapy brings relaxation. Cupping is a variety of massage, and therefore, it relaxes the body’s muscles. With this benefit, it is not uncommon to find individuals seeking cupping therapy often.

  • Digestion improvement
  • Managing stress and depression
  • Helping in reducing insomnia

Why you should choose our West LA cupping therapy

The health and wellness market is saturated. Finding the right provider, however, is not an easy task. We present our cupping therapy treatment to you, offering professional cupping therapy and other health and wellness services in West Los Angeles.

Dr. Summer Shanfar D.C. will guide your cupping therapy treatment. Dr. Shanfar has been working in the industry for over 20 years, and therefore, she brings a wealth of experience in cupping therapy. She is one of the few chiropractors who have practiced both in the United States and Europe.

Dr. Shanfar has been trained in Norway by the founder of the Vitageo (geometry of life) cupping method, Russian Dr. Mikhail Bazanov, M.D.

Dr. Bazanov created this unique treatment technique based on the mathematical method of projective geometry, which explains the connection between various areas on the body’s surface and the internal organs. The body’s surface, i.e., the skin, reflects the degree of health of the internal body. Good blood circulation and the flow of neurological information inside the body are fundamental to good health. Dr. Shanfar addresses this by combining chiropractic adjustments, which free up nerve roots at the spinal level, release the flow of neurological information, and cupping therapy, which improves blood flow. These treatments combined have an excellent effect in stimulating the body’s own ability to heal itself.

We have invested in the right cupping resources to offer you an optimal effect. For example, instead of using fire in cupping therapy, we use rubber pumps. Similarly, we do use silicone cups to achieve a better massage experience.

Thanks to our professionalism and expertise, we ensure that the services we offer are safe. Therefore, we avoid cases where cupping therapy will lead to burns, headaches, fatigue, and nausea.
