When cupping is performed, special types of cups are placed on focused areas of the body, creating suction. Cupping is intended to mobilize blood flow and promote healing. Sometimes cupping is combined with acupuncture or chiropractic care but it does not necessarily have to be --- cupping can be applied alone. Cupping has been used on those with blood disorders, such as anemia and hemophilia, rheumatoid diseases, such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, and high blood pressure and anxiety. At Alternative Health Clinic, Dr. Jin Li Dong utilizes cupping mainly for pain and inflammation. If you have more concerns or questions about how cupping can help you, or if you are just looking for a place to get it done in the local Myrtle Beach area, we are here for you.
