Cupping Therapy

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy utilizes negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, for superior results in a wide array of bodywork techniques.  It's safe, comfortable and offers remarkable results.

Benefits of Cupping

  • pain relief
  • increase in range of motion at joints
  • releases adhered tissue after injury
  • promotes healing and circulation
  • relaxation
  • fascial tissue release 
  • decreases muscle stiffness 
  • treatment of scar tissue 
  • improves mobility
  • improves blood pressure  
  • helps with treatment of frozen shoulder...and much more

Why is Cupping so Effective in Bodywork?

By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping therapy lifts connective tissue, releases rigid tissue and loosens adhesions.  Cupping pulls stagnated blood and waste to the skin level where it can be easily flushed out by the lymphatic and circulatory system.

Cupping techniques bring blood flow and nutrition to stagnant areas.  The pulling action engages the nervous system, thus allowing deep relaxation throughout the entire body.

What marks can occur from Cupping?

The marks that occur from cupping are not bruises.  They are metabolic waste, blood and other stagnant material that has been freed from the underlying tissue and brought to the surface where they can more easily be flushed away.  These marks can last anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks and should not be tender to the touch.

Call or book online and Kellie can teach you more about this technique.
