Chinese Cupping

Cupping is a massage modality that finds its roots in traditional Chinese medicine, and dates back as an ancient form of alternative medicine in Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultures.

The practice involves warming glass cups which are applied to the skin to create a vacuum seal by drawing the tissue into the cup creating a gentle pressure to the superficial muscles.

Where the muscles and fascia have become tight stagnation has developed which slows blood flow to the muscle and surrounding fascia creating pain and discomfort. Chinese cupping can assist in breaking up scar tissue, reducing inflammation and stimulating tissue relaxation.

In massage it can be applied with or without oil to the skin to promote blood circulation to the area to stimulate healing and release tight muscle tension by stretching the fascia and promote healing.

Cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness, depending on the degree of suction created with the cups and the level of internal stagnation in the muscles.

By eliminating toxins and stagnation in the body it can assist your body to heal and when combined in a massage treatment it can be beneficial in treating headaches, recovery and can allow the therapist to perform a deeper massage.
