What is Cupping Therapy?

When you participate in a cupping session, your acupuncturist will strategically place round jars (either glass, plastic or bamboo) on numerous trigger points on your body for suction release. Cupping can also help to disperse or break up stagnation and congestion by drawing the congested blood to the surface.*

By utilizing a suction therapeutic action, we are able to help penetrate deep into the muscle, helping to release harmful toxins and trigger the lymphatic system. The different types of marks left behind by cupping will help your practitioner determine what is blocking your energy or causing inflammation.*

Types of Cupping we offer

Cupping Therapy in our Smithtown office are offered in two ways; dry cupping and wet cupping.*
Dry Cupping: This type of cupping involves one of our practitioners simply placing suction cups on the skin.
Wet Cupping: A small puncture will be made to the skin with a lancet to apply the suction cup over, therefore drawing out a small amount of blood.

Dr. G and his entire staff are absolutely amazing! Back in May I was desperate for answers about my 15yo son who was having major pains in his foot. My son plays soccer and runs Track and he couldn’t run at all without having a pain level of 10. I had already brought him to two orthopedics, a podiatrist, a chiropractor and gotten MRIs and X-rays and nobody could give us any answers. Over 6 weeks went by and then I finally tried out acupuncture with Dr. G! During his assessment he knew immediately what was wrong with my son! He is so beyond knowledgeable and within 1 treatment my son felt a ton of relief and after 3 treatments my son was back on the track and soccer field! After 5 treatments he was completely healed with a pain level of 0! And absolutely no issues with his foot since!! My son also has hip pain that comes and goes for the last few years - we went back to Dr. G when his hip started acting up again and the miracle worker did it again! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. G and his incredible staff to everyone!

I came to Dr. Gordon with so many issues and not much hope of getting better. Just in the short time I’ve been there, I’ve had so much less pain and more mobility in both hands and arms. He’s very knowledgeable at what he does and you can tell that he really wants to help people feel better. Every time I leave the office I feel rejuvenated and in such a good mood. Overall it’s a great place, also due to the fact that Dr. Gordon and nurse Jen are so personable and easy to talk too. They make me feel so safe and comfortable. 5 stars all around ????

Dr. Gordon and his staff are personable, respectful and professional. Everyone goes above and beyond. The office is clean and the equipment is state of the art! It really has been a blessing coming to receive acupuncture and the other therapies offered. I have never felt better and I honestly didn’t think I ever would. But this place has given me my life back! Thank you!

I can't say enough about Dr. Gordon and his exceptional team, the attention and care they give to each patient is amazing. I have seen Dr. Gordon for back pain, knee issue and most recently foot pain and I have to say every single time I visit the very next day I'm back to resuming my very active lifestyle. I'm so grateful and happy I found this office.

One week ago I walked into Dr. Anthony Gordon’s office in Smithtown with chronic low back pain, bilateral hip pain, tingling along my left thigh, right knee pain and left shoulder pain. All of which was limiting my active lifestyle of going to the gym, my daily 2.5 mile walk and participation in my beloved zumba class. After one treatment I found myself standing straighter with decreased back, hip and knee pain and no tingling to my left thigh. I was also able to walk 1.5 miles pain free two days later. Now with three treatments completed I will say that each visit is bringing me closer to fully resuming my active lifestyle. I am grateful for the attention Dr. Gordon gives towards my concerns and appreciate his professionalism and expertise in the administration of various acupuncture techniques for pain relief. I highly recommend Dr. Gordon as he spends time in connecting with the patient by listening and then giving a thorough explanation of his treatment plan. I have already referred him to a friend and find myself telling everyone about the great care I have received.
