Cupping Therapy is a traditional, time-honored treatment remaining favored by millions of people worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable, and remarkably effective for many health disorders. It uses suction (negative pressure) rather than compression for bodywork, ranging from myofascial release to lymphatic drainage – and everything in between! Cupping rapidly facilitates soft tissue release, loosen toxins, and lifts connective tissues. This process breaks up and drains stagnation while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in ways not possible with traditional massage techniques.
The cups create a “Negative Pressure Massage”: The lifting and moving action 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. People are often surprised at how relaxed they feel…hours, or sometimes even days afterwards.
On the deeper therapeutic level, Cupping Therapy is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headache, fibromyalgia and neuralgia. Contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of Negative Pressure Massage Cupping.
Individually tailored for each patients specific needs. Protocol will be discussed with each patient to target their specific needs, injury or condition. Some conditions take a few to several treatments to obtain optimum results.
Cumulative Cupping Therapy treatments increase muscle endurance, circulation, lung capacity, lymphatic drainage and health maintenance. Many professional athletes incorporate it into their training to enhance their overall performance, agility, and ability to recover from their sports.
