Gina V. Offers Cupping Therapy in Papillion
You might recall pictures of Michael Phelps with purple dots at the 2016 Olympics. Prior to those images, most Americans were unfamiliar with cupping therapy which has it’s roots in Eastern medicine. So what is cupping and why is it used at Gina V. physical therapy? First of all, cupping doesn’t have to leave purple dots all over your body. Cupping is, however, a manual therapy technique performed by physical therapists like Gina and her team for treatment of skin, soft tissue and muscles. Cupping is used to soften tight muscles and muscle attachments, loosen adhesions, and lift connective tissue. Cupping therapy can be modified to deliver a spectrum of techniques, from deep tissue release to lymphatic drainage. It works to separate fused tissue layers by loosening adhesions, thereby allowing muscles to function more smoothly and efficiently by eliminating unhealthy tissue waste and debris. Gina and her team have found that cupping techniques can promote increased blood flow to body tissue and can stimulate the lymphatic system. Swelling and edema that is associated with injury and inflammation can hold toxins and fluid. Cupping can open the lymphatic system to help drain excess fluid and help the body reabsorb toxins through the lymphatic system. Gina V believes cupping therapy is a versatile technique that compliments additional physical therapy techniques and can be incorporated into a patient’s treatment plan. Over the last two years, cupping therapy has grown in popularity. Let’s be clear, though. Gina V. doesn’t offer cupping therapy simply because it’s on trend or your favorite Hollywood actors swear by it. Gina offers cupping therapy because it’s effective in softening tight muscles, stimulating the lymphatic system and getting patients back to doing the things they love to do.
