Cupping Physical Therapy in Los Angeles

Specialist Clinic in Beverly Hills

Back and neck pain are some of the most common maladies of the modern era and can severely impact your quality of life. As they can be caused by unavoidable things like stress and back pain, it is difficult to prevent them. However, the symptoms can be mitigated. Cupping physical therapy is a non-invasive method that can help you deal with lingering pain.

Cupping can also relieve the symptoms of headaches and migraines and help with breathing issues, although the effectiveness of cupping will depend on each person’s unique situation. Sometimes, cupping should be the primary therapy, while other times it is most beneficial as a complementary treatment. 

At BH Acuhealth Clinic, we take a holistic approach to your health – you will first be given a thorough examination to create a personalized treatment plan that will have the highest chance of success. Cupping physical therapy may be the primary and only treatment you need to resolve your issues, but your condition may require additional medical care.

The first step on the path to healing is diagnosing the root cause – schedule an appointment and let us determine the best care plan for your health needs together.

You Don’t Need to Fear Cupping Physical Therapy

There is nothing to fear from cupping physical therapy; it is a non-invasive medical treatment that may cause a slight feeling of discomfort similar to a deep tissue massage, at worst. The immediate side effects may be redness and tenderness at the affected spots that typically pass within hours, and even that is not something most people experience. 

Cupping therapy is done by placing special cups on specific points on your body; these cups create suction that expands your blood vessels to stimulate blood flow, reduces muscle tension, activates your body’s immune system to fight off inflammation, and helps your body expel waste. The end result is short- and long-term pain relief as well as better overall health.

Cupping physical therapy can be beneficial to anyone needing help with pain, be it undiagnosed chronic pain, pain caused by an acute condition, and even pain resulting from sports injuries. However, as we mentioned, the effectiveness of cupping can sometimes be limited due to the specific root causes, so it may be best suited as a complementary therapy to other treatments. 

That is why we also offer acupuncture for pain management at our Los Angeles clinic. Dr. Mitra Daneshrad is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine with over 26 years of experience in providing holistic medical therapy. She we will consult and work with your physical therapist, chiropractor, or other medical provider to find the most effective treatment plan and give you the care you deserve. Schedule a consultation and let us improve your quality of life.

The Benefits of Cupping Therapy

Cupping for Musculoskeletal Pain

Cupping is most often used to treat many types of musculoskeletal pain. If you are having lingering back and neck pain from bad posture or accumulated stress, cupping physical therapy can relieve you of the pain by relaxing your muscles, promoting peripheral blood flow, and improving the local anaerobic metabolism. Cupping physical therapy is also effective at treating sports injuries.

Cupping for Headaches and Migraines

The same principles of cupping therapy for musculoskeletal pain can be applied to help relieve you of the symptoms of headaches and migraines and lessen their intensity. Depending on whether you are suffering from a stress-induced, sinus, tension, or cluster headache, different cupping techniques will be used to treat your condition.

Cupping for Respiratory Issues

The build-up of phlegm and other fluids in the lungs can cause a wide range of respiratory issues, from simple coughs to asthma. Cupping physical therapy targets the congestion by loosening the fluids to allow your body to expel them and by drawing in fresh oxygenated blood into your lungs to promote healing, thereby alleviating coughing and breathlessness.

Dr. Mitra has been an angel as I have been on my fertility journey!! I began seeing her after a failed IVF attempt, preparing for a second attempt. Based on her recommendation to change my diet, and having weekly sessions with her before my 2nd attempt, my AMH levels improved to normal and I had lost 20 lbs all within 2 months time. I believe her help allowed for a successful 2nd IVF procedure, and I am well into my second trimester currently! She is very knowledgeable and extremely passionate about her patients and their experience. I would highly recommend her as a wonderful acupuncturist!

My husband and I had been trying to conceive for 7 months. I started seeing Mitra Daneshrad in November 2019 because at that time my cycles started becoming irregular. Before seeing a fertility specialist at the one year mark of trying or, taking any fertility medication we wanted to try an alternative approach. Fast forward to February 2020 and I just found out we're expecting! Thanks to Mitra and her knowledge and experience with infertility and acupuncture for helping us through our ttc journey. Mitra is extremely sweet and friendly and makes you feel super comfortable and relaxed. If you've ever questioned whether acupuncture works for infertility, I believe it does! I would definitely recommend Mitra to any couples who are struggling with trying to conceive.

I was initially referred to Dr. Mitra for lower back and sciatica pain related to a herniated disc. Her weekly treatments offered relief as well as a feeling of rejuvenation in my overall body. The added bonus of seeing Dr. Mitra is her extensive knowledge and experience with fertility and the female reproductive system. She not only worked on my back pain, but was also able to help with my cycle and any other issues that would come up for me such as nasal congestion. She is a great practitioner to have in one's overall health & wellness regimen.

Extremely healing, helpful and friendly. I have been coming to her for over a year and the treatments are always beneficial. And I am rather particular, so that means a lot. Well kept offices and other great doctors in the same space. She also shares daily affirmations to meditate on while on the table, which I enjoy.

Dr. Mitra is the absolute best! I was lucky enough to do Accupuncture sessions with her throughout my infertility struggles, pregnancy, birth of my miracle baby, post natal recovery and now as I try for my second! Mitra is so knowledgeable, kind and a fertility expert. She also treats any additional symptoms (emotional and physical) you are faced with each week. Truly, I believe she was integral part of my healthy pregnancy. She is very accommodating and truly cares.

There's no words for me to described how happy i am i want to thank Dr.Mitra shes just amazing.
