What to Expect in a Cupping Therapy Session at Red Crane Wellness

Embarking on a cupping therapy journey with Red Crane Wellness is a step towards embracing ancient healing practices designed to enhance your physical and emotional well-being. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment:

Initial Consultation

Upon your arrival, you will be warmly greeted by one of our skilled practitioner who will engage in a thorough discussion about your specific health conditions and the objectives you wish to achieve through cupping therapy. This initial conversation ensures that the session is tailored to your unique needs and health goals.

The Cupping Process

After the consultation, your practitioner will begin the cupping therapy by applying small plastic suction cups to targeted areas of your skin. Unlike traditional massage techniques that apply pressure, cupping therapy uses gentle suction to lift the skin and tissues. While the sensation is different from what most are accustomed to, it’s generally found to be quite pleasant. Think of it as a reverse deep tissue massage, where instead of pressing down, we’re gently pulling up, facilitating a unique and deeply relaxing experience.

Sensation During Treatment

It’s normal to feel a slight pinching sensation as the cups adhere to your skin, but this isn’t painful. In fact, many of our patients report finding the experience enjoyable and liken it to being intensely therapeutic.

After the Cups are Removed

Once the session concludes and the suction cups are removed, you’ll notice marks on the treated areas. These marks, often mistaken for bruises, are actually quite different and serve a diagnostic purpose. The color and pattern of these marks provide valuable insights into the condition of the underlying muscle tissue, offering clues on areas of tension, stagnation, or imbalance.

Post-Treatment Care

To maximize the benefits of your cupping session and to aid in the healing process, it’s essential to keep the treated areas warm and covered for a few days following your treatment. We recommend bringing an extra scarf to your session for this purpose. Additionally, hydrating by drinking plenty of water after your session is crucial to help flush out any released toxins and to promote recovery.

At Red Crane Wellness

We are committed to providing a serene and transformative healing experience. Our cupping therapy sessions are designed not only to address physical discomfort but also to promote holistic health and well-being. We look forward to guiding you through this rejuvenating journey.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy at Red Crane Wellness

Cupping therapy, a cornerstone treatment at Red Crane Wellness, integrates ancient healing wisdom within our modern, multispecialty clinic framework. This revered technique is pivotal in addressing a myriad of musculoskeletal issues, offering a holistic approach to pain relief and overall wellness. Here are the key benefits that cupping therapy provides to our clients:

Pain and Inflammation Reduction

Cupping is highly effective in alleviating chronic pain and reducing inflammation, making it a preferred treatment for those seeking relief from various musculoskeletal conditions.

Enhanced Blood Flow

The suction effect of the cups significantly boosts circulation, encouraging the formation of new blood cells. This enhanced blood flow revitalizes the body’s tissues and organs, promoting a healthier state of being.

Body Rejuvenation

Through its action on the body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems, cupping therapy rejuvenates body organs, contributing to improved organ function and vitality.

Reduced Stretch Marks and Scars

Cupping therapy aids in the body’s detoxification process, improves circulation, and facilitates the removal of excess fluids. These effects collectively contribute to the diminishing appearance of stretch marks and scars, showcasing the therapy’s ability to heal and restore skin integrity, even in areas distant from where the cups are applied.

Deep Relaxation

Our skilled therapists utilize cupping sets to engage your parasympathetic nervous system as they glide the cups across your body. This not only offers a unique form of deep tissue massage but also induces a profound state of relaxation.

A Cost-effective, Non-invasive Treatment

Cupping stands out as an affordable and non-invasive therapeutic option, providing a significant advantage for individuals seeking effective treatment without the need for surgery or pharmaceuticals.

Versatile in Treating Various Conditions

This versatile therapy extends its benefits to treating a wide array of conditions, including but not limited to, blood disorders, skin issues, migraines, varicose veins, rheumatic diseases, and gynecological disorders.

Immune System Boost

Cupping therapy strengthens the immune system by promoting a more rapid healing process. It primes the body’s defenses to better withstand illnesses.


In our modern world, where lifestyle choices can lead to toxin accumulation, cupping offers a powerful means to support the body’s natural detoxification processes, enhancing your ability to rid yourself of these harmful substances.

At Red Crane Wellness, cupping therapy is more than just a treatment; it’s a pathway to a balanced, healthier life. Our expert therapists are dedicated to harnessing the full spectrum of cupping benefits to support your journey towards optimal health and well-being.

Ive tried other places before and so far this has been my best experience. Ariadni was knowledgeable and listened to me. I left feeling much better than when I walked in and I plan to return.

UPDATE: I have been working with Ariadni for some time now. I have to give this updated review to say that she has consistently amazed me at the accuracy of her treatments. I have had no vertigo, diverticulitis attacks, heart palpitations are extremely minimal now. Stress, knees all good. Don't accept pain ! You'll be amazed! Having moved to Chattanooga from the west coast,away from my beloved ,long term Chinese medicine practitioner, I searched the sites and reviews in Chattanooga for someone of equal capability. I am so happy to say that Ariadni not only meets but exceeds my highest expectations! I have ,at this point had one treatment for vertigo and tinnitus and I'm already improved. She read my pulses so accurately it was astounding! We have more to work on after the tinnitus and vertigo and I'm confident there will be excellent results! Ariadni, compounds her own herbal remedies to compliment her treatments according to your individual needs. I highly recommend Red Crane Wellness!

Dr. Spinal has very good bed side manners and was very easy to talk to. She listened very well and was very quick in giving me her professional opinion on what was going on with my health. She performed an acupuncture treatment today on me and I didn’t feel a thing when she was inserting any of the dozen or so needles in my body. I look forward to coming back.

This was my first acupuncture treatment and Dr. Spinali provided the perfectly introduction. She made me feel safe, comfortable and prepared for what was to come. The pain in my foot that led me there wasn’t gone when I left, but I was able to proceed with my hike the next day as she promised.
