Cupping In Arlington Heights and Chicago

Cupping is a very ancient technique that has been mastered in parts of Asia, several thousands of years ago. It is a technique that is now gaining ground because it is a holistic form of medicine that helps maintain a person’s wellbeing and general health.

Find Out How Cupping Is Done

This is a technique that can be done only by a person who has been trained to do it; in other words, it is a technique that requires dexterity and speed combined with sound knowledge of human physiology. Small glass cups are used in cupping – these cups are placed on parts of the body that have been identified by cupping experts as the areas that are in need of treatment. These cups are placed on the body by means of suction; they can be moved around as well – depending on the duration and kind of treatment. Cupping has proven to relieve quite a few ailments such as chronic lung diseases, muscular pains, digestive disorders, arthritis, and more.

Find Out How Fire Cupping Works

Since fire cupping looks a bit dangerous, it is important to know what it entails, how it works, and the immense healing power it has.

The use of fire has always been quite important in Asian medicine. It is believed to be a purifier and pain reliever as well. A small swab of cotton is doused in pure alcohol and is introduced into the cup, milliseconds before it is placed on the person’s body. It is a smooth and fluid movement that a cupping expert uses, whereby the lit cotton is introduced into the cup, removed and the cup placed on the body – all in one effortless movement. This healing technique is certainly not an easy one to carry out and can be disastrous if it is done by a person without experience in this ancient practice.

What Our Patients Say

“I went to Oleg for back pain and stress/anxiety relief. I was skeptical of Acupuncture first but now i am a true believer. Oleg is very patient, knowledgeable and professional. I have tried many different therapies, excercices, without success. After several sessions I felt much better, my pain went down to a minimum and i felt energetic and healthy again. What i also liked is that Oleg has a background in massage therapy, so I was able to get best of both worlds during our therapy sessions. I have recommended Nature Med Acupuncture to all my family and friends.

Zhanna Kushniarova

“Oleg is amazing. I have had three sessions with him and the pain in my leg has subsided greatly. At my first visit Oleg was very thorough in his explanation of the acupuncture process and what I could expect. After the first session I had immediate improvement with the pain. The treatments have also helped tremendously with my anxiety. I am continuing acupuncture treatments not only for pain but also for the overall benefits. I highly recommend Oleg.
