Cupping therapy is an ancient massage technique that works wonderfully for releasing tension and pain in the muscles. During normal massage techniques your therapist applies pressure directly to your tissues, cupping uses negative pressure to relax the muscles. Cupping therapy draws the muscles and tissue upward using small suction cups on the skin for 5-20 minutes. The benefits of cupping therapy are incredible and range from muscle relaxation to lymphatic drainage.
Current cupping therapies are adaptations of an ancient technique and possess the benefits of traditional use, along with many incredible new applications. This therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol, bulb, or machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping, and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup. They also may be parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction reaches deep into the soft tissue, attachments and organs and also has a sedating effect on the nervous system. Another benefit is to pull inflammation and toxins from the body tissues so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissue often releases quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.
