Physical therapists Sean Altman and Vincent Parrillo now provide cupping therapy at their Stamford office.

Stamford, Conn. (May 22, 2018) – Access Physical Therapy & Wellness is now offering cupping therapy at its clinic located at 85 Old Long Ridge Rd. Treatment will be provided by Sean Altman, PT, DPT, CPT and Vincent Parrillo, PT, DPT.

“Cupping therapy is used in a variety of ways like improving the immune system, digestive system and blood flow,” said Altman. “This treatment can help reduce pain, muscle tightness and inflammation, along with a wide range of other benefits.”

Altman was trained by a certified cupping master in China and has taken many education courses in cupping. He also trained Parrillo in the same cupping technique. Although there is no specific certification for cupping, experience and proper coursework are necessities to perform accurately and address the correct areas.

“Cupping therapy is such a unique treatment used to relieve a variety of ailments,” said Parrillo. “I’m looking forward to working with Sean to provide this service to our patients.”

Cupping therapy is considered manual therapy and is covered by insurance so there is no extra cost for this service, according to Altman. Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.
