Traditional Therapy

“In this traditional therapy, the fire is placed in the cup to remove the oxygen thus creating a vacuum seal once the cup is placed on the body. Healthy circulation is restored and inflammation is reduced to heal All the traumas of soft tissues, muscles, and ligaments, are of inflammatory pathology and the primary trauma can lead to long-term sequels and secondary sequels. Sprains, tendonitis, aponeurosis, contractures, congestions and persisting edema etc.”

– Juline Busuioc, Licensed Acupuncturist at NewportCare

Traditional Therapy

“Using traditional cupping techniques or “suction cups” with movement achieves a synergy between massage and cupping and optimizes all types of massage by promoting the deep drainage of connective tissue, fascia, lymph and other bodily fluids.”

– Juline Busuioc, Licensed Acupuncturist at NewportCare

Traditional Therapy

“Nearly 8 out of 10 people will have low back pain at some point in life. Evidence shows that acupuncture treats chronic and acute back pain. In this case, I am treating an acute L2 disc herniation. You may notice that one of the needles is offset. This is because the injury has disturbed the natural energy flow causing the needle to sit at a greater angle than the others.”
