Cupping Massage helps breaking down rigid tissue (muscle and fascia), and assists in releasing excess fluids and toxins. During the treatment, the therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes, creating negative pressure (suction) that lifts the soft tissues of the body.
In traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.
People get cupping therapy to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. Cupping acts as an inverted massage: rather than applying pressure, the skin is pulled away with similar effects. This can also be seen in the smooth sheet of connective tissue (fascia) that covers the muscles. Connective tissue can become stiff, restricting muscle and joint movements. Cupping may relieve stiff fascia, making it more elastic and pliable, increasing mobility. People use cupping to complement their care for a host of issues and conditions.
Our dry cupping involves the use of silicone and glass cups and the tissue is worked on before and after with manual therapy.
