Cupping Therapy West Los Angeles
Cupping therapy Los Angeles uses an ancient form of alternative medicine, where a body suction is made on the skin. It helps with stretching and opening of muscle tissue and pores. Lifting with cups creates space to bring the toxins from the cells to the surface to release it as well as remove waste through the lymphatic system.
Benefits of Cupping Therapy
Cupping has many purposes, such as relieving pain, enhancing muscle recovery and eliminating soreness, decreasing inflammation, increasing blood flow, relaxation and promoting well-being, helps headaches and migraines, cellulite reduction, digestive detoxification and as an alteration to the deep-tissue massage.

Convenient location. The cups are a little painful at first but worth it in the end when you feel lighter and less sore.

How to prepare for Cupping Therapy in Los Angeles
Eat something prior to your session. Being cupped on an empty stomach may cause dizziness or nausea.
Rethink if cupping marks showing above a strapless dress line are suitable or not if you have an upcoming wedding or an event to attend. Discoloration can last anywhere from 1 hour to 3 weeks – it’s difficult to predict what will happen, especially if it’s your first time.
Bring clothing that can cover the area where you were cupped. After the session, you will want to make sure the area is not exposed at least 12 to 24 hrs. You should bring a scarf, sweater, hoodie, or jacket as a cover-up.
Recover From Cupping Therapy
Everyone responds to cupping a bit differently, so it’s great to give your body a chance to recover after the experience. Some patients feel ready to run a marathon while others may experience fatigue, soreness, or even mild headaches.
This is what we recommend after Cupping Therapy
Keep the cupped body part covered, warm, and free from any drafts after your treatment. Cupping opens the surface of the body, therefore temperature extremes (especially cold or wind) may cause the muscles to go into spasm or tighten up. You need to be sure to keep the area protected and avoid activities such as hot tubs or cold showers. Warm baths are acceptable if you can avoid leaning back into the tub where the area may be put up against cold ceramic.
Drink plenty of water! Since toxins have been released back into your system, be sure to drink plenty of fluids to help your body flush them out.
Avoid alcohol or other toxic substances for at least 24 hours following the session. Your liver is working hard to process what has been reintroduced into the system; don’t make it work harder than it has to.
Take it easy! Healing occurs in the calm moments we create; so avoid vigorous activity. Give yourself time to recover.
CAUTION: DO NOT use cupping therapy if you:
Are in the first trimester of pregnancy
Have broken bones, dislocations, hernia or slipped discs
Are receiving cancer treatments
Have been diagnosed with heart disease or cardiopathy
Are experiencing organ failure or liver/kidney illness
