What Is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping Massage Therapy is an ancient and unique modality that includes both traditional massage therapy and the use of cups. Cups are glass, silicone, plastic, or bamboo rounded objects that are applied to the skin. They are applied while a suctioning method is used. The suction occurs by using fire with glass or bamboo cups, pinching and stretching with silicone cups, or the use of a small manual or electric pump with plastic cups. When the skin is suctioned into the cups, the layers of underlying tissue are slowly released from one another. These layers include muscle layers, fascial layers, lymphatic pathways, and blood pathways. This allows for incredibly tight, knotted areas to release from underlying tissues and nourish the muscles and joints with increased blood flow and release of lymph buildup and toxins. The areas are then massaged to release any additional tight areas and tissues and push out any static lymphatic fluid.

It is important to know that the area will be bruised to varying degrees after a cup is placed and released. This bruising will not be painful long term as no tissues are being damaged below the skin. This is still important to know as the cupping marks can last anywhere from 1-10 days and will heal similarly to a regular bruise. Please be aware when booking cupping therapy and let others know around you, such as loved ones, coworkers, and medical professionals, that the marks are simply a part of the cupping release. This modality is great for anyone that enjoys deep tissue, has stubborn knots and adhesions, and enjoys ancient and unique modalities. This is not a suitable modality for anyone with severe blood or bruising issues.
