Wet Cupping in Clifton

Wet cupping therapy, also known as hijama or vacuum cupping, has been an ancient method of organ and body detoxification through the release of the toxins from body tissue and organs. Being one of the oldest therapies in Traditional Chinese Medicine, wet cupping has been used for over 3,000 years. In addition, it is believed that cupping has also been practiced for thousands of years in the Middle Eastern, Egyptian, and Greek cultures, often prescribed for internal disease, pain relief, and menstrual imbalances. Though cupping has been practiced for thousands of years in ancient cultures, it only gained popularity in the United States over the past 20 years. As the benefits of wet cupping became more apparent to the public, many acupuncturists now started utilizing the ancient cupping techniques to achieve optimal health and help promote the flow of healthy energy (qi).

What is Wet Cupping in Clifton, NJ?

Wet Cupping Clifton

The purpose of wet cupping is to detox the body of the toxins in order to treat chronic pain and illness. Using suction cup therapy, the therapist puts cups on the skin, which causes the tissue beneath the cup to be drawn up and swell. The increased blood flow to the treated area draws toxins and impurities away from the organs and nearby tissues towards the surface for elimination. Through the use of acupuncture cupping, the skin is pricked at special energetic acupuncture points to let the stagnant blood out and to get rid of the pathogens and toxins weakening the body. Wet cupping therapy at Pulse Acupuncture offers wet cupping as a means to achieve a healthy balance within the body, treat chronic conditions, and relieve pain.

What does Wet Cupping Therapy do in Clifton, NJ?

Before starting the wet cupping sessions, it is important to inform yourself on how does cupping work first. By creating mild suction with the cup around the treated area, the therapist achieves an increased blood flow and draws toxins to the surface of the patient’s skin. After that, tiny incisions with a single lancet, and a small amount of blood is then extracted by a second cup suction to release toxins for chronic and severe pains and conditions. The cupping therapy Clifton cost is usually considered more affordable than other treatment modalities, usually ranging on average between $30-$80 and varying heavily based on the patient’s geographic location. Pulse Acupuncture in Clifton offers a cupping treatment for $75, or a 10 minute cupping included in the acupuncture treatment that will detox your body and leave you feeling balanced and grounded, while the wet cupping price is $120 per session.

The Benefits of Wet Cupping at Pulse Acupuncture

In addition, other cupping benefits include treating acute painful conditions, high blood pressure, post flu symptoms, coughing, migraines, skin and reproductive problems. By removing the “old”, stagnant blood, wet cupping allows for an improved blood circulation and the restoration of fluids. Cupping improves the patient’s overall health by removing the energy blockages that are identified as barriers to the flow of healthy energy (qi), and benefits your joints, muscles, skin, the digestive system, blood, and the nervous system.

Side effects of Wet Cupping Therapy

Cup therapy is considered an overall safe procedure, and most common side effects, like dizziness, nausea or sweating, will typically occur during or immediately after the treatment. Other more rare side effects include burns, an infection, scar formation, anemia, and headaches, but are usually considered preventable if the practitioner follows the correct methods for cleaning the skin and preventing an infection before and after the procedure. Even though researchers generally consider wet cupping to be a safe procedure, it is advised that patients taking blood thinners or those who have bleeding disorders abstain from the cupping treatment and consult their MD. In addition, those who struggle with excessive dry or cracked skin, open wounds or ulcers, bone fractures, a dislocated joint, severe anemia, muscle dystrophy, excessive swelling, abscesses, or patients that fear blood should stay away from this treatment.

Dear Dr.Marina Doktorman,I hope this message finds you well! I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the incredible impact your acupuncture sessions have had on my life. Your expertise and care have helped me find relief and healing in ways I never thought possible.When I first sought acupuncture, I was struggling with a combination of issues that affected my overall well-being. Chronic back pain was causing constant discomfort, and my restless nights were dominated by persistent night sweats. Additionally, I was battling frustrating skin issues that seemed to resist all other forms of treatment.From the very first session, I knew I was in good hands. Your thorough understanding of my concerns and willingness to explain the acupuncture process put me at ease. The ambiance of your clinic created a serene and comforting space, setting the tone for a transformative healing journey.What amazed me most was the efficacy of acupuncture in addressing my various health challenges. The impact on my sleep was nothing short of miraculous. After a few sessions, I began experiencing deep, uninterrupted sleep, waking up refreshed and energized—a change I had been longing for, but never found through other methods.Furthermore, the improvement in my skin condition was remarkable. Acupuncture seemed to trigger a healing response, and gradually, my skin issues started to fade away. I couldn't believe the visible transformation, and it did wonders for my self-confidence.As for the night sweats and back pain, they became less frequent and intense with each session. Your targeted approach and skillful needle placement directly addressed the root causes of my discomfort, providing much-needed relief and easing the burdens I had carried for far too long.I cannot stress enough how appreciative I am for the positive impact you've had on my life. Your dedication to helping your patients achieve better health and well-being is truly commendable. I wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone seeking holistic and effective solutions to their health issues.Once again, thank you for your expertise, kindness, and genuine care. You have not only been my acupuncturist but also a catalyst for transformative change in my life. I am forever grateful for the healing journey we embarked on together.Thank you Dr. Marina Doktorman!

This place is awesome! Such a relaxing experience. Marina addresses all my concerns and always makes me feel comfortable. The treatments I received here have solved several of my health issues in just a few sessions after years of OTC medication. I would definitely recommend Pulse for serious health concerns and even if you just want some stress relief or add a new beauty treatment to your regimen! A+ for Marina Doktorman.

I was a patient of Marina Doktorma for about two weeks (October/November 2020), receiving acupuncture treatments for lower back and knee pain. Marina is a true professional. Before beginning each treatment, she explained the treatment options and made sure that I was well informed and comfortable before beginning. She was very gentle as she administered the treatments, (I feel asleep a few times) communicating with me throughout the process. In addition to the premise being very clean, relaxing music made for a very calming experience. Without hesitation, I would return for future treatments if the pain returns. Kenny.

Wet Cupping Therapy in Clifton, NJ - FAQ

Before your Wet Cupping Therapy session, it’s important to hydrate well and have a light meal. Avoid consuming caffeine or alcohol and ensure you’re well-rested. Make sure to discuss your medical history, medications, and any allergies with your therapist.

After a Wet Cupping session, it’s normal to feel relaxed or rejuvenated. You might notice some bruising or redness on the skin, which should disappear within a few days. It’s important to keep the area clean and avoid strenuous activity immediately after the session to promote healing.

Although the process of Wet Cupping involves incisions, it’s usually not described as painful. The practitioner generally applies a local anesthetic before making the incisions, so the patient primarily feels a slight pressure or suction sensation.
A typical Wet Cupping session usually lasts between 20 to 40 minutes. However, the duration might vary depending on the individual’s condition and the number of cups used.
