Fire cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is either used in conjunction with acupuncture or individually as its own form of treatment. With fire cupping:
- A cotton ball is held with forceps and saturated with 90% alcohol
- The cotton ball is ignited and held under the glass cup
- The cup is immediately placed on the skin creating a vacuum that creates negative pressure, which draws the skin slightly up into the cup.
- This modality increases circulation, breaks up scar tissue, adhesions, and stops pain.
- It can also help with digestion and congestion in the lungs.
- Fire cupping can be utilized on most parts of the body, and is relatively painless.
- Small purple/red circles may appear on the skin and last for several days.
- The price for each treatment is $15
