Cupping is a modern version of a traditional medicine practice that uses negative pressure (a vacuum) to help stimulate the body’s natural healing process, release muscle tightness and improve blood flow.

How Cupping works

During Cupping treatment, your Viverant Physical Therapist will place a number of cups around the targeted joint or muscles and use an air pump to create a vacuum between the cup and your skin. The vacuum gently lifts layers of skin, fascia and muscle allowing increased blood flow to the area.


Cupping can be used as part of a Physical Therapy care plan to provide pain relief and help restore mobility and muscle function.
