Cupping is an ancient health modality surviving since 3000BC. Starting in Egypt, Greece and made famous by China and gaining popularity in the West. Cupping is a safe and non-invasive technique used to treat colds, lung infections, and problems in the internal organs. It is also used to treat muscle and joint pain and spasms, particularly in the back. Cupping can be used on people for whom the use of acupuncture / dry needles poses a problem or risk. What to expect from my cupping therapy? When the cups are placed onto your body, a small sensation of pulling the skin upwards will occur. If this is at all painful, consult with your therapist and the pressure can be reduced very easily by letting air out of the cup. Cupping causes blood to be drawn to the surface of the skin, which can cause red marks, swelling, and bruising. Massaging the area can reduce this swelling or applying ointments containing the natural herb arnica. Please discuss the bruising outcomes with your therapist before having this procedure. How does it work? Cupping therapy is thought to stimulate blood circulation, release tight muscles, move lymph and have various positive sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system outcomes. We use cupping to stimulate the nervous system for health ailments as well as for the relief of muscular tension. A traditional massage uses positive pressure to palpate and release muscles against the bone. Cupping however creates a sunction , a negative pressure up into the cup, that when used correctly, releases muscle stiffness and soreness.
