Massage Cupping Therapy

massage_cupping

Massage Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues.

When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.

Cupping therapy has been further developed as a means to open the 'Meridians' of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissue.

There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians.

Cupping therapy is usually used as a part of acupuncture. The original cup was made from animal horns.

Fire cupping is the traditional and most effective method; however some use the suction cup method without the flame.

Cupping Techniques

There are two main cupping techniques: stationery and moving. Stationery cups are placed on the skin and left for a period of five to fifteen minutes in one location, or four or six cups may be applied and removed cyclically in a technique called “flash cupping”.

These are the methods most commonly used in Chinese medicine. Prior to applying the cup, oil is administered to the skin to facilitate smooth movement. Cupping can be used on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, abdomen, thighs, and upper arms.

The sensation of cupping is often characterized as deep warmth and tingling long after the treatment has ended. Cupping is not an irritant to the skin or body. The skin will redden with strong cupping indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface.

Application of essential oils immediately following a cupping treatment will aid absorption deep into the tissue. The increased local blood supply will nourish the muscles and skin and allow toxins to be carried away.

Massage cupping is also effective in treating cellulite. A light suction provides drainage, while heavier application can be used to stimulate, circulate and loosen adhesions or “dimpling”.

Cupping therapy enables the therapist to go deeper without discomfort to the client.

Benefits:

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins.
