Yukon Wound Care and Rehab is now offering cupping treatment.
Cupping has been around for centuries originating in Chinese Medicine. This treatment involves a special “cup” placed on an area of the body, where it is then suctioned on to the targeted area. The cupping causes an upward pressure that produces dilation of the skin which allows increased circulation and decreased inflammation in the underlying tissue.
Cupping can be applied in almost any area, such as the neck, lumbar region, gluts, or along joint spaces and tendons. It is considered a part of our manual therapy techniques and is no additional cost to the patient. Cupping is becoming a widely used practice in the therapy world and we are excited to share it with our patients.
