Massage Cupping Therapy - Modalities and benifits

A range of techniques from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release and contouring treatment of cellulite.

Massage Cupping Therapy is an adaptation of an ancient technique. This therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol to create suction on the body surface.

Theses cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotation techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, or may be parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction reaches deep into the soft tissue and attachments. Another benefit is to pull toxins and inflammation from the body to the surface of the skin where the lymphatic system can more readily eliminate them.
