Cupping

Acupuncture of Iowa Iowa City Services cupping

Laura has been practicing cupping since 1982 and finds it is helpful for many conditions. We provide traditional Chinese Medicine cupping using sterile glass cups or sanitized silicon cups. We do not provide bleeding cupping as is used in traditional medicine of the Middle East and North Africa. 

We also provide Gua Sha, the traditional “scraping” technique of China and the far east. It is very similar to cupping and provides results that are often superior to cupping. Your visit includes a brief evaluation and complete treatment.

We do not do cupping on the arms or legs or front of the body or face at this time. Cups will only be used on the back and neck.
