Introduction to Cupping Therapy

Dr. Eric and Dr. Mary introduce cupping therapy. This therapy aims to improve range of motion, blood flow, and pain. Similarly, it normalizes the brains awareness of connective tissue. The ESP Team utilizes evidence-based research to remodel soft tissue, resulting in conservative pain management. Generally cupping therapy leaves behind a mark or stain. This stain represents accelerated healing due to increased blood flow. A lot of cupping seen online appears aggressive and does not accurately represent the style used by ESP providers.
