What is Massage Cupping?
Massage Cupping is an adaption of ancient technique and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Glass or plastic cups along with vacuum pump create a negative pressure on the skin's surface. Cups are then moved using various techniques while gently pulling up. Bony land marks such as spine and scapula which are often avoided (due to compression because typical massage would cause pain), can be worked on.
The cups can also be parked or left on a particular area for short duration to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. Suction reaches deep into soft tissue, attachments and organs. Toxins, inflammation, blood and lymph are then pulled to the skins surface.
Health and healing are promoted by loosening soft and connective tissue, therefore an visible improvements are seen in scars and adhesions. The outcome is increased circulation, lymph flow and the sensation is truly indescribable.
What is the discoloration that occurs with some of the treatments?
There is a marked difference between traditional Chinese cupping therapy and Massage Cupping bodywork. The marks that are commonly left from Massage Cupping treatments are the desired result. Massage Cupping therapy very rarely produces this discoloration, called a "cup kiss" or "doo-hickey." If this appears during the treatment, it's just an added bonus indicating the release of intense stagnation (body fluids and toxins) in the area. It is also unlikely that it will re-occur in the same area.
Conditions that respond well to massage cupping are:
Lung Inflammation & Congestion
Migraine & Tension Headaches
Poorly Nourished Skin & Muscle Tissue
