Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is rooted in ancient Chinese Traditional Medicine and Eastern Massage Therapy. It is based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and poor energy flow through your body.

Cups, either plastic or glass, are applied to your skin and air is sucked out creating a vacuum of negative pressure, sucking your skin inward. The suction can be adjusted to each person’s tolerance. This suction allows fresh, nutrient-rich and oxygenated blood into the area. Helping to dispel stagnant blood and lymph, which improves energy flow that helps improve fluid dynamics and aids in improving tissue function.

Cupping Therapy can be used to loosen tight muscles, release adhesions and break up scar tissue. Tight muscles, muscle adhesions and scar tissue all lack proper blood flow. Tissues lacking in blood flow become ischemic resulting in tissue dysfunction, which we feel as pain, reduced movement and weakness.

After a treatment marks can be left on the skin and are a diagnostic tool for the Cupping Practitioner. The darker the marks, the more cellular waste or stagnant blood flow there is in the area. So, ideally with each successive cupping session, the marks lighten, indicating to the practitioner that blood flow is improving and cellular waste is being eliminated more effectively.

How long do the marks last? It all depends on how well your body’s lymphatic system processes cellular waste. Some have had marks disappear just after 3 to 5 days, and others have had marks take up to 10 days to disappear.
