What is Cupping?
Cupping Therapy is a traditional, time-honoured treatment remaining favoured by millions of people worldwide. It is a safe, comfortable and remarkably effective therapy for many health disorders. Cupping therapy works by means of suction. This provides you with an inverse pressure massage by pulling up on the muscles, rather than the usual compression techniques associated with standard massage therapy.
What are the Benefits of Cupping Therapy?
That inverse pressure promotes vasodilation, which is the expanding of the blood vessels. Vasodilation pulls heat, inflammation and congestion from the muscles and surrounding tissue. The same inverse pressure also facilitates the release of rigid soft-tissue, while loosening and lifting the connective tissues.
Results from cupping therapy:
- tissue is hydrated with increased blood flow
- toxins are flushed out of the tissue
- stagnant excess fluids and old debris are broken-up and drained from your system
- lymphatic pathways are opened up
