What is Cupping Therapy?

During massage cupping, the therapist can move the cups around and glide them across your skin, and it is recognized as a form of massage therapy. Massage Cupping has also been used for weight loss and cellulite reduction

 

In massage cupping therapy, the muscles are tended to with the application of pressure. Negative pressure is better to help with pain management than tissue compression.  With the cupping therapy method, the skin, tissue, and muscles are pulled upwards to enhance circulation, lymph flow and releive pain.

 

Massage cupping therapy also utilizes different oils so that the cup can glide easily across the skin of the patient. Massage cupping is considered an alternative medicine to help with pain management and induces feelings of relaxation and stress relief to ease tension .
