Our massage therapist, Cari, has developed her expertise in this ancient form of massage therapy. Add cupping to your next massage and experience all of the amazing benefits for yourself.
What is Cupping?
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist places suction cups on certain areas of your muscles that need the most attention. Cupping is an alternate form of deep tissue massage, which pulls up on the muscle versus pressing down on it.
Some clients love deep tissue compression, while others find cupping a more comfortable method of deep tissue with additional benefits. Rather than pressure being applied to the tense muscle, the cupping technique uses suction to relieve muscle tension.
The many benefits when receiving cupping include:
- A more comfortable method of deep-tissue massage
- Improve pain management
- Increase blood flow and circulation
- Promote relaxation
- Myofascial release of muscle tension
- Utilize trigger-point therapy
- Promote healing of sports-related injuries
- Improve lymphatic function
- Cleanse muscle tissues
The cup is typically only left in place for three minutes, however, Cari uses her advanced method of cupping in combination with other methods to customize your treatment.
