Cupping Therapy is an alternative therapeutic treatment that combines massage therapy and silicon cupping. It works by expanding the capillaries in the connective tissue and increasing the amount of fluid entering and leaving the area by pulling out the toxins that linger in the body’s tissues. Cupping is almost like the opposite of getting a massage since instead of applying pressure, it draws pressure out.
The treatment will target tissue and muscles that have tightened-up in response to an injury that has caused fibers to stick together and white blood cells to become stuck. Cupping Therapy has a host of health benefits including: boosting immune function to speed-up healing time, reducing muscle/tendon/joint pain, ease stiffness associated with chronic back and neck pains/migraines/fatigue, naturally improves performance & reduce stiffness and scar tissue, draws energy & blood flow to inflamed areas of the body & areas prone to low lymphatic circulation. It also reduces cellulite, acne and skin inflammation.
What is a session like?
Silicon cups are placed on the skin and the surface of the skin is slightly pulled into the cup using a manual vacuum pump. Depending on your symptoms, multiple cups can be placed at one time or the cups can slide up and down the skin which may feel relaxing and similar to a massage. Cupping massage can be applied to stiff muscles due to sports injuries, over use, strained muscles, tense neck muscles, leg muscles etc...
