Experience the Benefits of Cupping Therapy
One of the most powerful detoxifying treatments, cupping, or suction cup therapy, has been in practice for over 5,000 years and remains one of the oldest and most globally practiced forms of therapy.
Cupping therapy not only allows you to experience a deep relaxation, but its health benefits are numerous. This age-old practice is an effective method to relieve physical stress, reduce cellulite, heal sports injuries, and improve problems with acne, high blood pressure, migraines and sinus pressure.
Abdominal cupping has also been found to help with conception.
Opposite from a deep tissue massage, cupping techniques pull the tissue and muscles, rather than compressing them. Drawing toxins out of the body, the suction inside the cups lifts the skin away from the body to create negative pressure, as opposed to the positive pressure induced by massage. This negative pressure helps loosen muscle tissue, increase healthy blood flow and sedate the nervous system. Any marks under the skin represent toxins, pesticides and acids being removed from the body.
Our studio is pleased to incorporate cupping techniques into any of our massage therapy treatments.
