What is Cupping Massage?
Cupping is a traditional Chinese technique that relies on negative pressure, creating suction on the skin, as opposed to the tissue compression techniques that are normally used during a massage.
Why is Cupping Massage Beneficial?
Suction cups are used to pull blood to the surface of the skin, which is thought to improve circulation and promote healing. Cupping therapy helps relieve aching muscles, releases joint stiffness, and may reduce inflammation for a variety of acute and chronic conditions.
During your session, a therapist will position a suction cup over specific treatment areas, producing a vacuum effect that helps improve overall circulation. Lie back, take a deep breath and enjoy the feeling of deep relaxation as it spreads throughout your entire body.
