What is Therapeutic Cupping?

Therapeutic Cupping is an adaptation of an ancient technique. The purpose of this technique is to promote health and healing by loosening soft tissue and connective tissue, including scars and adhesions. In addition, it’s also thought to improve blood circulation and increase lymphatic flow. This therapy can improve functional mobility and joint performance.

Cupping utilizes silicone or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol to create suction on the body’s surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, or may be left in one position for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. Suction reaches deep into the soft tissue and its attachments. Another benefit is to pull inflammatory products from an injury site to the surface of the skin where the lymphatic system can more readily eliminate them.

Benefits of Therapeutic Cupping

Experts have used cupping for many decades to ease back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other problems. It’s becoming more common for patients to request cupping to relieve chronic muscle soreness. Cupping is a relatively low-risk therapy and offers several benefits, such as:

Who Should Consider Therapeutic Cupping?

I had a great experience at Evolution PT. The facilities are clean & everyone is so friendly. My therapist, Mitchell, was super knowledgeable, professional and patient with me. He helped me develop an exercise plan for my torn meniscus that has so far helped me avoid the need for surgery. Highly recommend Evolution PT.
I came to Evolution from a doctor’s recommendation after a knee injury prevented me from running. 8 weeks later I am back to running pain free!My physical therapist Jen was super knowledgeable and taught me a lot about my body and what I need to do to be able to run and operate at peak performance for the rest of my life! I had to work hard for it but with Jen’s guidance my progress was very consistent!

I have chronic back and hip issues; although a candidate for surgery postponing indefinitely. After a few searches and reviews decided to try this location. Front desk team were helpful and informative regarding insurance plan (Medicare+supplemental). Easy to schedule. There is metered and side street parking. I always found a spot. Be prepared and patient though.Erica Seto was awesome; she reviewed my both MRIs provided comforting feedback, explained her process. I had my own patient portal so I could continue the recommended exercises at home.I practice Tai Chi regularly, she helped identify why I had issues with some of the poses; easy corrections.Highly recommend Erica and this location. This is an active and lively location. Very upbeat and positive team.

Hello. My name is Vivian Chinelli. I highly recommend my physical therapist, Jonathan Bernfeld. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, encouraging and fun! He's helped me move through my range of motion issues caused by frozen shoulder very quickly. Just a few more tweaks and I'll be free and clear of movement and pain issues.

Mitchell McLaughlin has truly helped me by taking the time to access my injury and by continually adjusting my stretching/strengthening routine. His knowledge of the body and concern and care for my injury make him a truly effective physical therapist. My injury is 5 years old and he’s the first one to address the root causes of my injury. I’m stronger and in less pain after only 4 weeks of pt. The environment at Evolution PT is open and easy going. Always greeted with a smile, and cancelling/rescheduling (w/24 hours notice) is simple. There is ample street parking in all directions.

I came to Evolution Physical Therapy to heal a knee injury so I could get back to training for my next marathon. Dr. Carole Gong has been absolutely wonderful in assessing my weaknesses and teaching me the exercises I need to build strength and heal quickly. She is compassionate and, as a runner herself, understands how important the sport is to me. More importantly, having a reliable physical therapy program gives you the confidence and freedom to know that you are on the path to recovery so you can get back to doing the life activities you love. The patients here come from a wide spectrum of backgrounds in their physical needs, from post-surgery healing to age-related mobility issues to athletic people recovering from injuries. Everyone is welcome. The Evolution facilities in Beverly Hills are clean and well maintained, and the front desk is well organized and efficiently run with scheduling and billing. Highly recommended!

Evolution PT has been excellent for strengthening my neck to return to running.Carol Gong has been my PT therapist. She’s very professional and experienced. I’ve gotten the tools /exercises to become aware of what I can do myself @ home to relieve neck pain, strengthen neck/shoulders/back and continue my running routine. Evolution works with you with exercises @ each session. It gets you into the routine of doing the important exercises!

One wonderful thing about by terrible bike accident has been getting to work with the best PT in L.A., Dr. Ethan. The charisma he brings to his work is beyond compare. Ethan doesn't just treat his patients he forms relationships with them; you'll feel his support and care from the moment you walk in. Watching him nurture junior staff and help young kids recovering from injuries during their jr. sport career with passion and presence is simply a joy. His slappin playlists, lively personality and humor keep every session fresh and fun. I wouldn't have kept up with my recovery with out this sensational human <3

I had the pleasure of working with Lauren Lee and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a PT. From our initial evaluation, she correctly diagnosed my injury (later proven correct through an MRI) that my primary care doctor had misdiagnosed, and she properly designed my treatment plan accordingly. She is also extremely easy to work with, caring, encouraging, and knowledgeable. Definitely 5/5 and would return myself for my next injury.

I am having Physical Therapy to help reduce the pain in my shoulder. I am getting great attention... helping me work on better form with everyday exercises (bench press) and simple exercises that help build the smaller shoulder muscles. Carole has been great. I have just started but already seeing improvement in mobility.

Can't ask for better care. Nick Davis has been nothing but amazing since I've started working with him. I highly recommend him. I've tried other physical therapists before and none of them come close.
