Massage Cupping is an amazing healing modality adapted from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that involves suction and negative pressure, rather than tissue compression. Utilizing advanced bodywork techniques such as Myofascial Release and Lymphatic Drainage, massage cupping can instantly release rigid soft tissue; drain excess fluids and toxins; loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue; and bring blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
The strong vacuum will mimic the rolling action of deep tissue massage without any discomfort. Using solely the compression of manual massage, these kinds of results are simply not possible.
Another benefit of Massage Cupping is that it can feel extremely relaxing. The pulling action of the cups engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment. A deep snore is not uncommon. You will be surprised at how relaxed, warm and light you’ll feel – hours… sometimes even days afterwards.
Numerous conditions respond beautifully to massage cupping, including fibromyalgia, anxiety, insomnia, post-injury trauma, chronic pain, post-surgery adhesions, cellulite and sluggish colon.
