What is Cupping?
Cupping Therapy is a traditional healing practice that involves placing specially designed cups on the skin to create suction. This suction gently lifts the underlying tissues, promoting increased blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and the release of tension and toxins. Our Occupational Specialist has extensive training and expertise in utilizing cupping therapy.
By utilizing cupping, it is possible to alleviate pressure on median nerves and enhance the viscoelastic function of nerve tissue. This therapy promotes improved blood flow, nerve conduction, and overall functionality of the affected area.
How Does Cupping Therapy Work?
During a cupping session, our skilled therapist will carefully apply cups to the targeted areas of your elbow, wrist, and hands. The cups create a vacuum effect, drawing the skin and underlying tissues upward into the cup. This process stimulates blood circulation, encourages tissue oxygenation, and supports the body’s natural healing processes. By enhancing blood flow and promoting the release of toxins and metabolic waste, cupping therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and improve overall hand function.
Leveraging a diverse set of techniques and tools, including activity and exercise programs, custom orthotic fabrication, pain and swelling management, and wound and scar care, occupational therapists facilitate the healing process. Additionally, they extend their expertise as consultants in the industrial sector, training employees on adopting healthy work habits to prevent occupational injuries.

I was referred to this location after an unfortunate accident that left my right hand broken while vacationing in NYC. Everyone was very nice including Leslie, my Therapist, who made the splint for my right hand in a short amount of time and gave me all the info I needed for care and speedy healing for my trip back to CA. They even called my Ins. right then and figured out what my coverage was to ensure proper billing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who may need rehabilitation following an injury, their office was completely set up to help anyone regain their full motion and mobility.
