Physical Therapist Stephanie Goubeaux applies cupping therapy to outpatient,
Brenda York of Versailles, for treatment post total knee replacement.
Stephanie Goubeaux, Physical Therapist at Versailles Health Care Center, recently received training in Contemporary Cupping Methods at a three-day ICTA workshop in Columbus, Ohio. Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice that has been in the recent spotlight at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Cupping Therapy can benefit the skin, muscles, circulatory system, nervous and digestive systems, and is indicated in such conditions as sciatica, rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, bursitis, IT band syndrome, and many others. This therapeutic technique allows for byproducts of muscle and other congested tissue to be pulled out through negative pressure, or lifting, of tissue which then promotes greater circulation and healing.

“Cupping is a great adjunct to contemporary medicine and can assist in relief of many painful conditions,” said Goubeaux.
