Fire Cupping at Alchemy Clinic, Frontenac, MO

Fire Cupping

Improves local circulation, increase the body’s anti-inflammatory capabilities, release fascia adhesions, and stimulate the endocrine system.
Fire Cupping is a therapy that uses the placement of glass cups on the surface of the skin. A heat source is used to create suction, causing instant movement of your body’s circulation. The tension on the surface of the skin is used to intentionally improve adhesions in the body’s connective tissue, as well as improving tightness in the muscles. By pulling toxins in the tissues up the to the surface, the local areas are flushed with fresh, oxygenated blood. This fresh blood flow reactivates the body’s healing mechanisms that reduce inflammation, increase endorphins (the body’s natural pain killer), and alleviate pain. Every patient is unique and it is important to assess whether cupping therapy is appropriate on a case by case basis. When done correctly, and at the appropriate times, Fire Cupping can be a powerful catalyst in your body’s healing.
