Massage cupping bodywork is a pleasant and gentle, non-invasive technique that achieves powerful results with Negative Pressure. Cupping therapies have been practiced in Eastern civilizations and reported in historic journals as far back as 28 A.D.
By creating suction and negative pressure, massage-cupping therapy is used to soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions, lift connective tissue, bring hydration to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. This stimulates circulation while separating fused tissue layers and draining lymph.
Many patients who would benefit from deep tissue therapies, but are not comfortable with the deep kneading, would find this therapy a good alternative. Massage cupping brings similar results and utilizes the light suction to pull and stimulate tissues at a deeper level.
Patients who work with our therapists on an ongoing basis have reported decreases in the time it has taken them to recover from injuries, and they leave the sessions feeling a renewed sense of well-being and vitality.
Listed below are some of the many conditions that respond to the cupping technique: Fibromyalgia, Sciatica, Chronic Pain, Arthritis, Menopause, Diabetes, Edema, Headache Relief, and Neuralgia.
