Cupping Therapy at Yin + Yarrow Acupuncture, St Paul

Cupping Therapy uses cups placed on the skin to create a counter-pressure or vacuum-effect which in turn allows your muscles and tissues additional space for blood to flow. This aids in releasing adhesions and “knots” in the fascia and connective tissues. This technique can loosen tight muscles, encourage blood flow, sedate the nervous system, and retrain the neuromuscular system.

Cupping can:
⚘ Loosen tight muscles
⚘ Encourage blood flow
