Heal Your Body with Cupping Massage Therapy
Alleviate Chronic Pain and Inflammation
Increase Blood Flow with Cupping Therapy
Cupping massage therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine where the therapist places special cups on your skin to increase blood flow, loosen muscles, and alleviate pain and inflammation.
Improve Circulation and Treat Pain
Cupping massage therapy is based on the ancient Chinese belief that specific health issues are caused by poor energy and blood flow throughout your body.
During a cupping massage, a therapist applies cups to your skin to create a pressure that draws blood to the affected area and pulls skin, tissue, and muscle upward.
The suction and negative pressure increases blood flow and warms your skin, which makes it easier for the therapist to find knots and apply pressure to your muscles.
Contrary to popular belief, cupping massage therapy is not painful at all. In fact, most people describe it as a pulling versus a pushing effect that is enjoyable.
The Benefits of a Cupping Massage
A cupping massage is beneficial to people who suffer from chronic tension or common ailments, including back and neck pain, muscle stiffness, inflammation, anxiety and fatigue, migraines, and cellulite.
It also helps treat pain in deep scar and connective tissue. Cupping removes toxins and dead cells, increases circulation, and sedates the nervous system, which benefits people who suffer from high blood pressure.
How Does It Work?
During a cupping massage, a therapist places a cup onto your skin and creates pressure by applying heat to it.
When the therapist places the hot cup on your skin, the air inside cools and creates a vacuum that moves the skin and muscle. As the blood vessels respond, your skin may turn red.
Next, the therapist removes the cups from your skin and covers the affected areas with ointment or bandages to prevent infection. There may be mild bruising or other marks, but they should go away within a couple of days.
Cupping massage therapy is available as a 30-minute session, as well as an enhancement to any other Cloud Nine service. All clients receive a complimentary Mother Earth Hot Pillow and aromatherapy. They can also add free whipped magnesium cream to their treatment.
