How Can Cupping Massage Help?

Cupping is used to relax muscles, improve blood circulation, activate the lymphatic system, and calm the nervous system. Cupping is most well known for being an extremely effective therapy in treating neck, shoulder, and back pain.

It can also be useful in treating respiratory conditions like asthma and in clearing chest and upper respiratory congestion associated with colds and flus. It’s also a fantastic treatment to help enhance the immune system and can be useful in the treatment of stress and anxiety.

While cupping is usually applied to the back, other areas of the body can be cupped as a way to enhance the effects of an acupuncture treatment, improve circulation, and remove blockages.

What Does Cupping Treat?

What is a Cupping Massage Like?

Cupping involves the creation of a vacuum within small glass cups, which are then placed on the skin (usually the back). The vacuum causes suction which creates positive pressure on the skin, pulling it up into the cup. The result is deep muscle relaxation and a very enjoyable sensation—our clients love it!

The effects are similar to that of a deep tissue massage. Cupping can create positive effects in many body tissues including the skin, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and lymph. In these sessions, the cups are applied and moved across different muscle groups to create a “cupping massage.” For further effect, the cups are then allowed to sit on the body in “suction mode” as you rest.

Release tension from mind and body

It’s an understatement that tension tends to build up—both in the body and also in the mind and emotions. Some of our clients find regular Cupping Massage to be an important tool for releasing what’s built up from the hours sitting, the office, family and relationship stressors, the workouts… and coming back to a peaceful, centered space.
