Cupping In Vancouver, WA

What is Cupping?

Cupping Therapy is a traditional healing practice that involves placing specially designed cups on the skin to create suction. This suction gently lifts the underlying tissues, promoting increased blood flow, lymphatic drainage, and the release of tension and toxins. Our Certified Hand Specialist has extensive training and expertise in utilizing cupping therapy specifically for hand issues.

By utilizing cupping, it is possible to alleviate pressure on median nerves and enhance the viscoelastic function of nerve tissue. This therapy promotes improved blood flow, nerve conduction, and overall functionality of the affected area.

How Does Cupping Therapy Work?

During a cupping session, our skilled therapist will carefully apply cups to the targeted areas of your elbow, wrist, and hands. The cups create a vacuum effect, drawing the skin and underlying tissues upward into the cup. This process stimulates blood circulation, encourages tissue oxygenation, and supports the body’s natural healing processes. By enhancing blood flow and promoting the release of toxins and metabolic waste, cupping therapy can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and improve overall hand function.

Leveraging a diverse set of techniques and tools, including activity and exercise programs, custom orthotic fabrication, pain and swelling management, and wound and scar care, hand therapists facilitate the healing process. Additionally, they extend their expertise as consultants in the industrial sector, training employees on adopting healthy work habits to prevent occupational injuries.

 “Easy to work with and schedule appointments. She is always running on time as well as provides great service! Had a carpal release done at that same time as they repaired a wrist fracture. Her therapy has progressed me past my surgeon’s expectations!”

“I was referred to see Amy through my workers comp after having spent months doing physical therapy elsewhere. She was extremely thorough and explored many options to help facilitate healing and scar tissue minimization. I enjoyed our visits and probably talked her ear off all the while she didn’t make it seem that way. Ultimately my hand/tendon is in a better place than before we started. Would definitely go back.”
