Cupping Therapy

What is cupping therapy?


Cupping Therapy is a specific set of movements that Dr. Menner uses in different combinations to quickly facilitate elimination of debris and release of rigid soft tissues. This therapy, like massage, creates space and separation in the tissues that allows the doctor to work more effectively and comfortably on his patients. Almost every area of the body responds to this unique treatment.
