Fire Cupping

What Is Fire Cupping?

Fire Cupping therapy is a technique that uses small glass cups or bamboo jars as suction devices that are placed on the skin. Suction is created by placing an inverted cup over a small flame before placing the cup on the skin. Once placed, the cups can be left in place, or gently moved across the skin.

Fire Cupping Benefits

Fire Cupping is much like the inverse of massage – rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. Cupping can be combined with acupuncture or Shiatsu massage in one treatment; but it can also be used alone.

Cupping massage benefits uses negative pressure to loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Massage cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even things like colds and breathing problems.

 

Boise Fire Cupping Therapist

Here at Radiant Earth Acupuncture we practice Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). We do not use rubber pumps to create suction, rather the natural fire cupping method.

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.

As a Chinese Cupping therapist in Boise, we are careful to monitor bruises and marks from massage.

I've been having acupuncture, chiropractic, massage and many other types of wholistic touch type therapies for years. I had my first acupuncture session with Callie a few days ago and found it one of the best I've ever received. I highly recommend her and I will definitely go back. A couple of days later now, I no longer have neck pain, I'm feeling much more balanced and my sleep has improved. Boise is lucky to have Callie.

Callie is an amazing acupuncturist! From the thorough intake to the amazing sessions, I really felt and experienced positive changes with my shoulder issues. The sessions are very relaxing and vitalistic, which is what I look for in a healer. I like working with someone who looks at helping facilitate healing within the body, and I really got that with Callie. I highly recommend her!

Callie is one of a kind. A true gem on your path to health. She helped to rebalance me in some incredible ways. I apologize for the TMI, but I don't know how else to express that I had some female issues. Didn't get my period in months. With Callie's guidance, I was flowing once again. That's not all she did for me either. I would not only recommend her, I will continue to see her for my health maintenance. See her, you won't regret it!

Callie is an amazingly gifted TCM practitioner. I have a sensitive system and am very particular when it comes to having anyone work with me. From her thorough intake process to her meticulous, compassionate process of treatment and her knowledge of elements and cures, Callie is by far one of the best I’ve ever been to in over 20 years. Boise is lucky to have her services!
