Cupping

Keely Briggs is an acupuncturist offering cupping! Cupping is a modality within Traditional Chinese Medicine where fire stimulates a suction creating decompression in the myofascial tissues. Cupping regularly leads to the presence of ‘Sha’ on the skin. This is a painless and mild ‘bruising’ or redness that appears over areas of broken down stasis. Cupping therapy is recognized by many cultures throughout history for its therapeutic efficacy.

What To Expect

For your first appointment to our clinic you should schedule about an hour to 90 minutes of your time in clinic. Paperwork will be sent to you beforehand to give us information about your condition and overall health. If you can’t complete this beforehand, you should arrive to your first appointment 15 minutes early.

After your provider receives your paperwork, they will conduct a thorough history which includes questions about the pain you experience and your general health. They will then conduct a physical examination which involves moving your joints to recreate your pain.

Once your provider finishes your physical examination, you will have a discussion together about your diagnosis and treatment plan moving forward.
