People interested in finding practitioners of acupuncture and cupping therapy in New York to help them deal with aches and pains or other conditions can turn to Dr. Steven Schram. As a leading chiropractor and a licensed acupuncturist in NYC, he offers a variety of alternative therapies to bring people healing and to enjoy perfect health.

Dr. Schram also practices cupping therapy, a highly beneficial technique that is part of Chinese Medicine. While most associate acupuncture with needles, cupping, otherwise known as Ventosa, is another method of healing that is more gentle and less invasive. Similar to acupuncture, cupping follows the lines of the meridians, creating the same beneficial effects as needles, which some patients describe as a particularly pleasurable experience.

Cupping therapy is an extremely effective treatment for many conditions, especially those that involve respiratory issues such as bronchitis, asthma, and congestion due to allergy or other illness. It is also useful for back pain.

With this practice, a specially made round glass cup is placed on the body and air is sucked out with a small hand pump. The skin underneath the cup is gently pulled up by the suction, opening the pores, breaking up blockages and drawing blood to the area. This improves blood flow and draws stagnant fluids into circulation.

In the practice of cupping, Dr. Steven Schram may place the cups of particular areas of blockage, or with a slight bit of oil on the skin move the cup gently around to treat a larger area, like a form of massage. There is often redness or some discoloration of the skin where the cup has been placed, but the treatment is not painful and the discoloration lasts only a short time.
