What Is Massage Cupping?
Massage cupping is based on the common practice of Chinese cupping therapy. By creating suction and negative pressure, Massage Cupping therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to the body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
Cups are positioned over the area of the body to be treated and suction is created using a vacuum gun or bulb. The suction level can range from light to heavy, and the movements performed by the therapist can be stimulating or sedating.
Massage Cupping is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out, yet does not add to it. The skin will turn red with strong movements, indication that circulation has been brought to the surface. Massage Cupping therapy is wonderfully effective as an addition to a massage or as a therapeutic service.
