Cupping therapy has been used for centuries as a therapeutic intervention to alleviate pain and inflammation. This terrific therapy has gained national attention in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. At Ideal Health Chiropractic, we have been providing this effective therapy for years. But, we knew we could do better. We wanted to take our cupping therapy in Denver to the next level. We’re very proud to announce that we’ve improved upon this therapy with our new Cupping PLUS Treatment! Let’s break down this innovative cupping therapy and dive into the ways that our new approach can benefit you.
Recap: What Is Cupping Therapy?
In order to fully understand our new cupping therapy in Denver, let’s briefly recap the practice first. Cupping therapy was originally developed as an ancient traditional Chinese medicine therapy. Records indicate that cupping therapy was originally introduced sometime in the third century. The starting point can be debated though, as there are conflicting records as to when cupping was first practiced.
Cupping therapy is basically what it sounds like. Cupping is the practice of creating local suction on the skin for therapeutic benefits. Small suction cups are primarily used for cupping therapy. This therapeutic practice has the power to alleviate pain and inflammation, and improve circulatory problems as well.
In a cupping treatment, small suction cups will be placed on the skin. Suction can be created through the use of heat, as cups are heated with fire and then applied to skin. As they cool off, the cups naturally draw the skin inside. Newer tech has made it easier to create suction without any heat. As the skin is drawn inside the cup, your blood vessels expand and tension is released in your muscles. It’s a highly effective therapy that can treat pain, inflammation, and more.
Our New Cupping PLUS Treatment
Our new approach to cupping therapy in Denver goes above and beyond the traditional treatment. There are a number of distinctions that make our new Cupping PLUS treatment more effective than the traditional approach.
First and foremost, our innovative Cupping PLUS treatment includes a full body adjustment. Our chiropractor will work his magic to adjust your spine prior to any cupping therapy. This adjustment will help improve your mobility, flexibility, and the health of your spine and cartilage.
In addition, you have your choice of cup types during the PLUS session. You can either stick with traditional suction cups or use suction cups that are hooked up to an electrical stimulation machine. The added e-stim can provide you with numerous health benefits, as it directs sound waves to your injured area. The e-stim should help relax your muscles and quell inflammation in the body.
And finally, the Cupping PLUS treatment also involves the use of a specially designed lotion. Dr. Funk developed this lotion on his own, so that you know exactly what’s in it and how it benefits you. The lotion is comprised of:
- Magnesium – To further relax your muscles.
- Turmeric – To help reduce inflammation.
- MSM – To repair your muscles.
- Lavender essential oil – To create a soothing/calming effect.
By combining all of these chiropractic practices into one treatment, you receive tons of health benefits. Our innovative cupping therapy in Denver has been specifically designed to provide the maximum relief possible.
What To Expect From This Unique Cupping Therapy In Denver
By the end of your cupping PLUS treatment, you’ll experience a deep feeling of relaxation. The therapy can also provide significant pain relief and inflammation reduction for you. With less pain and a more relaxed temperament, nothing will slow you down!
Similar to traditional cupping therapy, the suction cups may leave slight bruises or dark marks. These bruises could indicate that you have poor circulation or high levels of toxins. Those marks usually last for only a few days, but they can linger for a week or two.
You may also experience slight soreness for roughly 24-36 hours. The specialized lotion for our PLUS treatment should help reduce your recovery time as well. It is worth mentioning that the effects of cupping therapy can vary from person to person.
