Cupping Massage

Cupping Therapy has been used all over the world for thousands of years. It involves placing silicone or glass cups on the skin to create suction.

Silicone cupping massage is particularly effective in providing fascial relief. Fascia is the connective tissue that surrounds your muscles. When it dries up and tightens around muscles, it can limit mobility and cause painful knots to develop. Cupping applies direct and sustained pressure to the skin, fascia, and muscles using the power of suction. However, unlike massage, cupping uses negative pressure (a pulling movement, rather than pushing) to achieve several effects at once, including: Improving blood flow to an area.
When suction is applied to the skin, this makes your blood vessels below the skin enlarge. Fresh blood can then force itself into the area which helps to create new blood vessels – a process known as neovascularization. These newly formed blood vessels can then fill your tissues with new oxygen and nutrients.

Silicone cupping therapy can be used on the same conditions you would use a deep tissue massage for. Some of the clearer reasons why people use cupping therapy is to increase tissue delivery and oxygenation, to increase circulation, trigger helpful inflammation processes, eliminate stagnant blood, to stretch connective tissue and fascia, and to create new blood vessels. As a form of non-invasive physical therapy, silicone cupping therapy has also been successful at treating symptoms related to fibromyalgia, arthritis, blood disorders such as hemophilia and anemia, skin conditions such as acne and eczema, facial rejuvenation and wrinkles, depression and anxiety among other mental disorders, insomnia, migraines, as a detoxification method, to boost the immune system, to treat respiratory illnesses such as asthma or bronchitis, to eliminate cellulite, and to ease stiff muscles.
