Cupping Massage
Cupping Massage is a modern version of a traditional therapy. It targets the musculoskeletal system and utilizes silicone or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol to create suction on the body surface. By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy lifts connective tissue, releases rigid tissue and loosens adhesions. Cupping pulls stagnation, waste, and toxins to the skin level where it can be easily flushed out by the lymphatic and circulatory system. Cupping techniques bring blood flow and nutrition to stagnant areas. The pulling action also engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing relaxation throughout the entire body. The cups can be left in one site for a prolonged period or moved along the tissue. Cups will typically be left on for 3 to 15 minutes depending on the client’s reaction and sensitivity. There is no extra fee for cupping. It can be integrated into your regular massage treatment.
