Cupping is an ancient alternative therapy that decompresses soft tissues using vacuum suction, unlike other forms of massage that compress soft tissues. During cupping, the cup gently draws your skin inward and lifts underlying soft tissue into the cup.
It is used to treat lack of mobility, tight muscles, and many diagnoses like headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and fibromyalgia.
• Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions
• Reduce painful trigger points
• Improve circulation, blood, and lymph circulation
• Relieve pain
• Promote mobility and range of motion
• Decrease toxins
Cupping is very relaxing and generally not painful. You will experience a pulling sensation on the skin as the cup is moved in a rolling fashion. A warm sensation is usually felt after the suction is released from the cup due to the increased blood flow to the area.
Mild soreness or tingling can be expected from the release of the built-up lactic acid in the muscle tissue. Some clients may experience mild redness or bruising. Physical exertion and heat therapies are not recommended after the treatment.
