Massage cupping is the combination of massage movements and the use of a suction device to create a negative pressure on the skin and underlying tissues. A cup or cups are positioned at the area to be treated and a negative pressure vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissues upwards into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation locally and systemically, relaxes muscle and fascial tissue. Massage cupping can also be great for helping to draw stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body releasing a vast array of pain causing factors.

What can this therapy treatment do for me?

Since Cupping Massage technique uses negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, it is an excellent way of providing deep tissue work and Myo-Fascial Release (MFR), to lighter drainage techniques such as Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD). The negative pressure suction of the cups rapidly facilitates the release of rigid soft tissue by stretching it up from the underlying structures, thus loosening areas of adhesion or restriction, activating muscle spindle reflexes that relax contractile tissue and retraining of the myofascial structures. Further, it stimulates the nervous system reflex to the cerebral cortex, contributing to an increased rate of recovery from pain and disease.

         The effects are remarkable on hypertonicity and aching muscles and activate the secretion of synovial fluid's, which releases joint stiffness in ways not possible using the compression pressure of traditional massage. Simultaneously creating a localized expansion of the tissue producing a profound increase in blood flow (vasodilatation) by drawing fresh blood to areas of ischemic pain, raising skin temperature, promoting metabolism within the skin tissue for better functioning of sweat and sebaceous glands, flushing capillary beds, draining stagnant blood, toxins and lymph, and re-supplying vital nutrients.

The intended suction can range from light to heavy. This along with the movements performed and areas treated by the therapist will produce stimulating (toning), or sedating (draining) effects. It is important for your therapist to effectively assess the condition (physical, mental and emotional) of each client before the procedure so they employ the proper application of the cups to produce the desired outcome.

        One misinterpretation of the marks that sometimes occur as a result of cupping are that they are bruises. Unless the cupping was done too strongly, no actual “bruising” occurs. What these marks under the skin are, post cupping is stagnation, dead cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and most importantly – toxins being drawn out of the system.
