What Is Cupping?

Not all cupping techniques are created equal; some therapists use glass cups, while others might use a more modern silicone cup. The basic premise of cupping therapy is to create a vacuum between your skin and the cups, which creates a wide range of effects. Some of the benefits of cupping include increased blood flow to certain areas of the body, stimulating your immune system, and reducing pain. Cupping can be a very successful form of therapy for those suffering from back pain, carpal tunnel, migraines, and other ailments.

At Backs on Burnside, we utilize a safe and effective technique that is customized to target your individual needs. We strive to not only alleviate your pain and discomfort but also to help speed up your recovery time from injuries or surgery and help prevent future complications. Our team is happy to work with you to find the best therapeutic treatment plan that fits your needs. 

Cupping Massage


Before any of our treatments, we always meet with you to discuss your symptoms and get an in-depth medical history. Having information about your past injuries, surgeries, and other complications will allow us to customize your treatment plan better. Additional information like your daily activities and how your pain affects your ability to do certain things, as well as what methods you’re currently using to alleviate your discomfort, will also help. 

During your cupping massage, your therapist will strategically place the cups on different areas of your body. You will feel a strong sucking sensation and slight pressure once they adhere. Depending on the type of treatment plan, the cups may be left in position for a few minutes and adjusted later. Cupping therapy is not painful and is an excellent way to relax and release muscle tension. After your appointment, your skin may be red from the cupping marks, but any redness or slight bruising will dissipate after a short while. Many of our clients experience great results from a cupping massage and can get relief for everything from the common cold to chronic muscular pain. We also offer deep tissue massage if you need extra relief from tension or pain in other parts of your body. Call our office today to schedule your appointment!
