Massage Cupping Therapy

In cupping therapy a suction cup-like tool is applied to a person’s skin to address the underlying sore tissue. In this way, cupping is much like a massage from the inside out warming up the muscles and alleviating tension. When cups are applied to the skin they offer suction, called negative pressure, to separate stuck, stiff muscles and joints to encourage blood flow, reduce pain, and increase range of motion (ROM).

The cups are placed in various arrangements on the body and are left in place for 30 seconds to several minutes.

Our joints, muscles and fascia become stiff from stressful lifestyles, repetitive motions, injuries, dehydration, inflammation – all symptoms of feeling “stuck” range of motion patterns or restriction in our ability to move freely. Cupping can alleviate joint and muscle pain in just a few minutes a day in the areas where you feel dis-comfort or dis-ease. The techniques of application will vary depending on the presenting pain pattern. However, Cupping is an excellent prevention method and treatment for a wide range of conditions including high blood pressure, arthritis, stiffness, chronic pain, joint pain, cellulite, migraines, postural imbalances and so much more!
