Cupping is an ancient tool used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves placing heated glass cups on the body. As the air inside the cup cools it creates a suction on the skin holding the glass in place. The negative pressure created within the cup changes the pressure on tissue structures such as nerves, capillaries and muscle fascia. The cups can be moved along the skin giving the effect of a massage but with an altogether different sensation! Cupping aids in increasing blood flow to the affected areas as well as promoting Qi circulation that may alleviate pain, decrease swelling, increase range of motion and speed up healing processes. It often leaves a slight bruise-like colouring on the skin that should fade in few days after treatment and is not painful. Cupping can be done as a standalone treatment or as an add-on within a massage.
Cupping massage is also a great treatment for cellulite, EMS stimulation and a firming mask is added at the end of the massage- a course of 6 is recommended, once a week for optimal results.
