Dr Anson is amazing! This is my second visit and I have been to many chiropractors but Dr Anson has helped me tremendously in just two visits!! I have had low back pain for years that can shoot down my leg and have been visiting a chiropractor regularly for 10 years. I think the difference is he works on the muscles to release and the bones to align both and isn’t stuck on one technique, he did cupping (totally new for me), muscle scraping (was weird and sounds weird), muscle release techniques and stretching as well as adjusting.

The deep tissue shoulder massage and cupping therapy greatly relieved the restriction.

WOWZA! 💗 Love this place! 💗 I had a 60-minute massage with Harmony and she was outstanding! She showed such genuine interest in helping me heal and gain better mobility. She also used Graston Technique (a scraping method) and cupping - which was awesome and also educational. I only wish I had scheduled 90-minutes!

I have been multiple times for massages, cupping and I love the float therapy. Every time I leave, I feel loose, limber and recharged.

The first visit with Marcus for Graston helped restore a range of motion in my shoulder I didn't have before. I leave Recover every time blown away by how much Marcus and staff help with any and everything! From Graston, to cupping, to movement restoration, to float therapy they have it all!

Ryan was great! I was suffering with neck pain when I arrived for my appointment. He suggested dry needling and cupping. I could feel relief and my muscles relax within minutes.

I have a chronic disc issue with my lower back that will flare up periodically and causes significant pain. I tried out Recover and within minutes Marcus had walked me through a few stretches that had me almost able to touch my toes, pain-free - that's a huge accomplishment when my back is flared up! I also got to try out cupping for the first time and that was very relaxing and a wonderful pain relief. I went home with a significant decrease in pain and was able to sleep without waking in pain for the first time in over a week.

Cupping therapy is incorporated as a way to relieve pain, promote relaxation, enhance blood flow, and ease inflammation. Cups are placed on the affected areas with suction to increase blood flow and move toxins. A common misconception with cupping is the therapy leaves you bruised after. The marks left by the cups are in fact not bruising, but toxins and stagnant blood removed from the tissue. Increasing your water intake after a session should help decrease the marks and move the toxins faster. To find out more about how cupping may benefit you, contact Recover today.

Why is cupping performed?

Cupping can sometimes be described as a “tissue distraction release” technique. During the cupping process, the cups are glided across different areas of the body in order to lift and separate tissue. This works to enhance the release of the interfaces between the neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. It relaxes muscles, releases trigger points, improves lymphatic flow, increases local circulation, and releases scar tissue adhesion. Evidence supports cupping as an effective treatment method for several conditions, such as chronic neck pain, low back pain, and fibromyalgia.

There are three forms of cupping techniques: longitudinal, cross fiber, and circular. The most common form is longitudinal, where the cup is glided longitudinally across the muscle fibers. Cross fiber is used when it is believed that the tissue is scarred. Circular is typically used at the end of the session, in order to ensure that all areas were covered.

It is no secret that cupping is a common and popular practice among athletes. In fact, several athletes from the 2016 Rio Olympics used cupping. A running patient with over a year history of iliotibial band (ITB) pain reported instant relief following a three-minute session of cupping. The technique was repeated a week later. Following only two cupping sessions, he was symptom-free and returned to his usual running.

While there are some apprehensions toward cupping, there is a real science behind it. The suction within the cups is created with negative pressure, which helps to increase hydration and blood flow to body tissues, ease up adhesions, and eliminate excess fluids. It is a versatile treatment that can be modified for the necessary treatment of your condition, whether you are in need of deep tissue massage or lymphatic drainage.

It is important to note that cupping is not a treatment method that will be performed on skin with wounds, infection, burns, or active inflammation.

How can I get started?

There are several benefits to cupping. It can boost your skin health, help with respiratory issues, and even improve digestion. It is also used to speed up the recovery time of certain injuries and ailments, in addition to reducing symptoms.
