Cupping is very relaxing and generally not painful. 

Cupping is a form of massage therapy that decompresses soft tissues using vacuum suction, unlike other forms of massage that compress soft tissues.  During cupping, the cup gently sucks to your skin and lifts underlying soft tissue into the cup.  The sensation that is experienced is a pulling of the skin as the cup is moved in a rolling fashion. Redness or a feeling of warmth is usually experienced after the cup's release due to increased blood flow to the area. Almost anyone can benefit from cupping. It is used to treat lack of mobility, tight muscles, scars, and many diagnoses like headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and the release of trigger points. Mild soreness is to be expected from the buildup of lactic acid in the muscle tissue, but less soreness than a deep tissue massage.  Bruises are to be expected and can last up to a week.  Physical exertion and heat are not recommended after the treatment. Cupping can leave cupping marks which usually fade away within a week.

Cupping benefits are the following:

  • Release scar tissue and fascial adhesions

  • Reduce painful trigger points

  • Improve circulation, blood, and lymph circulation

  • Relieve pain

  • Promote mobility and range of motion

  • Improves mature scars

  • Decrease toxins

If you have experienced traumas such as strains, sprains, overload, etc., cupping can help to provide natural healing and pain relief.
