There are a few wellness treatments that you can totally do yourself at home—foam rolling, Theragun-ing, and even a luxe spa-like rejuvenating facial. Cupping therapy, however—isn't one we'd recommend attempting without the guidance of a pro as it tends to involve a combination of fire, plastic, glass, and suction. Plus you know, it's kind of impossible to cup your own back.

And, since the goal of cupping therapy is to engage your muscles in deep relaxation for the purpose of pain relief, reducing inflammation, and overall well-being, it's way less stressful to let someone else do it.

That being said, finding a place to get in a session in Los Angeles can seem sort of overwhelming—there are so. many. options. After all, the City of Angles is an epicenter of everything wellness and woo-woo, so it's unsurprising that LA has a ton of prospects when it comes any and all holistic treatments.
