Cupping therapy is one of the oldest natural healing therapies in the world, and dates as far back as 1500 B.C., when the ancient Egyptians used it to treat fever, vertigo, menstrual imbalance, poor appetite, pain and a variety of other health conditions. The Chinese later used cupping therapy to induce relaxation, expel toxins from the body, promote healthy blood flow, etc. There is also evidence of a long-standing use of cupping therapy in Greece, Africa, Russia, and Europe.

In a typical cupping session, glass cups are warmed using lit up cotton balls soaked in alcohol, then placed over specific areas on the body. Such therapy activates blood vessels and lymph nodes simultaneously. As a result, when there is increased blood flow/circulation and active lymph nodes, healing takes place, immune system strengthened, muscles and joints relaxed, and toxin as well as circulation blockages, which cause pain/discomfort, are removed.

What People Are Saying

I truly enjoy Shirley and Ed at the Acupuncture Center. They take the time to listen and I never feel rushed. They are atentative to listening to your body's imbalances and listening to feedback on follow-up visits.

Shirley had helped me so much in the past several months. It has been great to find someone who will find the root of the problem and not just put a bandaid on it.

Theo W. on Yelp

My treatment has been with Shirley. She is a very caring professional and cares about all aspects of your life, not just the reason you came in. I have had nutritional counseling, Chinese herbs, and acupuncture with her, and I highly recommend her.

Kate H. on Yelp

My first impression was a peaceful and clean waiting area, the wait was, well there was NO wait really. Ed was awesome attentive and patient while I rambled on with my "issues". He spent a great deal of time evaluating my painful ankle, and explaining my treatment plan as well as the payment and insurance process.
