Cupping Massage

Elements Massage™, Issaquah is proud to offer Cupping Massage as an additional option for your next massage session.  While this is a new modality at Elements Massage™, Cupping massage is an ancient and time-honored practice.

Cupping Massage has been used for over 3000 years to treat many different ailments ranging from musculoskeletal, dermal and digestive to psychological conditions, such as anxiety, depression, and stress.  

Cupping Massage is a safe and non-invasive modality that uses suction cups to create decompression rather than tissue compression.  Decompression helps relieve aching muscles and joint stiffness, reduce inflammation and provide relief for many acute and chronic conditions.  While some people find cupping mildly uncomfortable to start, others find it an enjoyable experience and quite relaxing.


Cupping Massage can be beneficial in treating the following:

  • Pain – Caused by migraines, and back pain among others.
  • Stress – Cupping provides the same effects as a deep tissue massage. As blood flow increases and improves, you will experience a sense of relief and relaxation.
  • Injuries – Cupping brings healthy blood flow to the injured tissues to aid in the healing process, while also drawing toxins away from the area.Injuries such as plantar fasciitis and carpal tunnel can be treated very well with cupping.
  • Digestion – When the abdomen is treated with cupping, it can release, stress and stiffness in the muscles.Once the tissues relax, a better movement is gained, leading to better digestion.
  • Respiratory Issues – Using suction cups on the chest can increase blood flow and drain lymphatic fluid.This can create relief from seasonal allergies, and chest infections.
