Cupping Massage Therapy

Discover the magic that Cupping Therapy can do for your body.  Utilizing the ancient art of suction (or negative pressure), cupping provides amazing therapeutic results in far less time than regular massage.  Skillfully applied cups pull and stretch the body’s tissues, lengthen your muscles, release myofascial adhesions, increase circulation, stimulate the movement of your lymph, clear interstitial debris, and initiate the parasympathetic nervous system.

On a deeper therapeutic level, Cupping is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headache, fibromyalgia and neuralgia. Contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of

Negative Pressure Massage Cupping.

Used on the back, the larger cups will mimic the rolling action of myofascial release without discomfort to the client. The variety of movements can be long and draining, circular and vibrational for stimulation and for areas of stubborn knots and rigid tissue. The skin will redden with strong pressure, indicating that the circulation has been brought to the surface.

Application of liniments, analgesics, tinctures, hydrosols and essential oils immediately post treatment will facilitate absorption of the product deeper into the tissue. The increased blood supply to the local muscles and skin will bring nourishment and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems to carry away stagnation and toxins.

Another benefit of negative pressure is that it really feels great, and is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out, yet does not add to it. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment.

 

Clients are surprised at how relaxed, warm and light they feel – hours... sometimes even days afterwards.
