Cupping therapy – sometimes called MediCupping or Massage Cupping – is a therapeutic modality that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Used to address pain, inflammation, edema, scar tissue and a variety of chronic conditions, this therapy is excellent for overall health and well-being.
This technique uses negative pressure in specific locations to release deep tissue rigidity, eliminate toxins, improve circulation and stimulate the flow of blood.
When performed in combination with massage therapy, cupping increases the benefits of the massage. Depending on the client’s individual needs, this technique can also be used for lymphatic drainage, improving range of movement, rejuvenating the connective tissue and more.
A Natural, Traditional Therapy
Cupping is an all-natural therapy that is safe for clients of every age, from children to mature adults.
This modality provides deep relaxation and a calming effect, promoting a profound sense of well-being. Some clients describe the sensations of cupping as having a massage from the inside out. A single session can produce profound results that persist for days after the treatment. Multiple sessions produce a cumulative effect of improved physical, mental and emotional well-being.
After your session, you may notice some residual ring-shaped markings on your body – which you’ve likely seen before on Olympic and professional athletes. It’s important to note that these are not bruises but simply the proof that your cupping therapy session was a success. These are called “Cup Kisses” and, once you’ve experienced the results of cupping, you’ll be excited to have more.
