Practiced in China as an integral part of Chinese Medicine for the past 5000 years, Cupping Massage is used to soften tight muscles, tone attachments, loosen adhesions, bring hydration and blood flow to the tissues of the body, and drain excess fluid and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. By creating suction and negative pressure, Cupping Massage brings localised blood supply to the area being worked on thus bringing nourishment and allowing for toxins to be released. Large cups are used for broad areas such as the back where the strong suction will mimic the rolling action of Deep Tissue Massage. The skin will turn red with the strong suction indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface of the skin. Stationary cupping may also be used where the cups remain affixed to a specific area for 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the condition being treated.
Cupping Massage is beneficial for many ailments: Chronic muscle pain and stiffness, the common cold, high blood pressure, anxiety, headaches, fibroymalgia, and cellulite and works with the body by:
- Releasing rigid soft tissue
- Drains excess fluid and toxins
- Lifts connective tissue
- Increases blood flow to skin and muscles
- Activates stagnate Qi
The therapeutic applications of Cupping massage have been documented through several thousand years of clinical experience. Cupping Massage intensifies the therapeutic aspect of the traditional cupping and is a highly effective treatment.
