What is Cupping
Massage Cupping combines massage movements and negative pressure using a suction device on the skin. By positioning a cup at the designated treatment area a vacuum is created which draws the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. This helps to decongest the targeted region. The vacuum produced creates a suction effect; increasing blood and lymphatic circulation both systemically and locally, relaxes muscle tissue, draws stagnation and toxins out of the body and releases many pain causing factors.
Massage Cupping can be combined or used as a supplement to traditional massage treatments to quickly facilitate elimination of debris and release rigid soft tissues.
Claimed Benefits to Clients include; Encourages tissue healing, relieves inflammation and pain, increases flexibility and range of movement, loosens adhesions and nourishing blood supply to the skin.
