Cupping 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
A cupping therapy session could lead to red circular marks, otherwise known as cupping therapy marks. These marks are the result of trauma, as capillaries break in the area of injury. The cupping mark can last from hours to a few days, and they do not hurt. Cupping marks are an indication of dampness accumulation, toxic accumulation, and Qi stagnation in your body.
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 the cupping therapy, we use rubber pumps. Similarly, we do use silicone cups to achieve a better massage experience.
