Massage cupping is a form of therapeutic bodywork that is used to facilitate deep tissue release and aid in bringing about numerous benefits to the body such as:
Stretching muscle & connective tissue
Loosening adhesions & scar tissue
Sedating the nervous system
Massage cupping is performed by applying 'reverse pressure' to the body via silicone suction cups that are massaged along problem areas and then in the direction of natural lymphatic flow.
Sessions are typically 10-20 minutes in length, and is integrated with massage therapy.
Massage cupping breaks down adhesions/knots by helping to increase fluid (blood & lymph) circulation.
Massage cupping helps reduce build-up of cellular waste, toxins, inflammation, & excess fluids by assisting in dragging them from within muscles/soft tissue, to the body's surface, where they can be more efficiently disposed of via the lymphatic system.
Massage cupping is reported to be beneficial for many conditions, such as...
Tissue & joint inflammation
Stagnant lymph & edema
Massage cupping is contraindicated for:
Low blood pressure
