Contemporary Cupping Therapy
This ancient treatment relies upon creating a local suction to mobilize blood flow in order to promote healing. When the cup is left in place for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place as well as significant myofascial release. Cupping aids in lymphatic activation, toxin release, reduced muscle pain (and scar tissue), and
increased oxygen flow in fascia and muscular tissue.
One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the "separation"
that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars and restricted fascia. Active individuals and athletes alike are benefitting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance.
This type of therapy is also known as Negative Pressure Massage Therapy
or Reverse Pressure Myofascial Cupping Therapy.
This service is combined with many other massage modalities for each individually tailored therapeutic session. I work with a variety of different cups and will choose the best suited cups for your needs or for experienced recipients, specialized cupping therapy by request. The results for rehabilitation and facial release work is truly remarkable when
Cupping Therapy is enhanced with Massage Therapy.
