Cupping

ADD TO ANY MASSAGE FOR $20 BY THERAPIST JESSICA

Tracing its origins to ancient Chinese medicine, cupping takes its name from small glass, plastic or ceramic cups used during the therapy. When placed on the skin, the cups create negative pressure that draws the tissues into the cup.

During a traditional massage, a therapist directs pressure toward and into skin and muscles to increase circulation and reduce tension. Cupping actually works the opposite way, and it stimulates blood flow using a suction action. When the two therapies are combined, massage becomes even more beneficial and effective

Cupping enthusiasts swear by the therapy to ease muscle tension and speed healing after a strenuous workout. As with other types of massage, the cups also undo knots in tense muscles. At the conclusion of your treatment you are left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. With every stroke you will feel yourself melt into the table with relaxation and rejuvenation, taking away the stresses on your mind and body.

Therapy can be geared more aggressively to the athlete, or subtler to the average spa goer looking for some pain relief along with relaxation. At the conclusion of your treatment you are left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

While little research has been done on cupping, anecdotal evidence suggests it has many uses and benefits:

  • Help to relieve adhesions in the muscles and soft tissue of the body
  • Help relieve muscle hypertension
  • Help to reduce trigger points
  • Reduce cellulite and improve body contours
