What Is Cupping?
What Conditions Can Cupping Treat?
Cupping therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of issues including patients with extreme heat, fevers, common cold, respiratory issues, skin issues, muscle spasms, digestive issues, cellulite, stubborn fat, symptoms of menopause and sciatica . It is also particularly effective at easing conditions that cause muscle aches and pains. Cupping therapy is also used for various cosmetic issues including cellulite reduction, stubborn fat elimination, and skin tightening.
HOW DOES CUPPING WORK?
By increasing active blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed, cupping can be used to relieve muscle fiber tension, which can improve overall blood flow to the area and promote cell repair. Cupping has been used for sports injury recovery and rehabilitation as it can promote the formation of new connective tissues and create new localized blood vessels that can promote healing and repair.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A CUPPING TREATMENT?
During a cupping treatment, one or more specialized glass cups are placed on the skin and then heated or suctioned onto the skin. The cup is heated with fire that is placed directly into the cup. The fire source is then removed, and the heated cup is placed with the open side directly on your skin.
When the hot cup is placed on your skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum that draws the skin and muscle upward into the cup. Your skin may turn red as the blood vessels respond to the change in pressure. The localized redness and color change is a positive visual sign that indicates increased active blood flow the targeted areas where the cups are placed. In fact, the color of the cupping response allows us to diagnosis a patient’s internal condition.
Any mild bruising or other marks usually go away within 10 days of the session. Cupping is usually performed along with acupuncture treatments.

Words from our Patients
After years of playing competitive sports and not stretching properly, it all finally caught up to me and I recently injured my neck at the gym. That same day at work, I was referred to Hana by a couple of co-workers who said I would not regret going....and boy oh boy were they right. I have now seen Hana and her team of professionals for cupping and acupuncture a total of three times, and my neck pain is virtually healed.
One of the best clinics in LA for sure. Had an amazing first experience and am looking forward to going back for more treatments. I’ve never felt more relaxed and my back feels amazing! Thank you guys!
Hana did some cupping for me when my muscles weren't feeling too great. The next day I felt significantly better. She also gives amazing treatments for anxiety. Ive been feeling fantastic. She's super professional and genuinely cares. Looking forward to continuing treatment.
I have had many sessions with both Hana and Jenna and they both are truly an incredible, intuitive, caring, gifted healers. There are actually no words to articulate the powerful relief and release I've experienced during our treatments.
