Gua Sha And Cupping FAQs

What is gua sha and cupping?

Gua sha and cupping are ancient Chinese medicine techniques that offer an array of benefits for your health and well-being. These techniques are safe and highly effective, so you don't need to take harsh or addictive medications. Jieru Sun and her staff tailor each treatment to your personalized needs.


Gua sha is a holistic technique that uses a massage tool to optimize healing, improve circulation, and maximize your health and well-being.


Cupping, on the other hand, uses cup-like devices to create suction in targeted tissues, open pores, and increase circulation. It also promotes lymphatic drainage to eliminate body toxins.

What are the advantages of gua sha and cupping?

The benefits of choosing gua sha and cupping at Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Wellness Center include:

  • Improved circulation

  • Faster healing

  • Reduced inflammation

  • Body toxin elimination 

  • Reduced chronic pain

  • Improvements in arthritis and fibromyalgia

  • Increased cell regeneration 

Are gua sha and cupping right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for gua sha and cupping, the Traditional Chinese Acupuncture and Wellness Center team will discuss with you your medical history, symptoms, past diagnoses, medications, lifestyle, and more. 


They also review your treatment preferences and desired results before tailoring a treatment plan.

What will I expect during and after the treatment? 

During gua sha or cupping, you relax comfortably while your provider manipulates your painful, damaged, or inflamed tissues using suction cups or a massage-like device. 


These treatments are well-tolerated and may last 10-30 minutes, though everyone has unique needs.


After gua sha and cupping, your treated skin may be red, swollen, or tender during the healing and detoxification processes. Over time you can expect cell regeneration, less stress, reduced body toxins, more energy, and health improvements. 


Jieru Sun offers additional gua sha and cupping treatments when needed, as well as acupuncture, dietary supplements, and healthy lifestyle coaching.
