CUPPING MASSAGE THERAPY
WHAT IS CUPPING?
Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine, which has been recognized for it’s numerous benefits for thousands of years, where a professional therapist puts special cups to apply suction on the skin. This technique uses glass, plastic or rubber cups where pressure is evacuated to create a suction to the skin that is then lifted up into the cup, contrary to a typical massage where pressure is applied directly into the muscles. Once suctioned, the cups are typically left on the body for 10 minutes, while you relax.
Because this technique pulls the blood and toxins to the surface of the body, it may occasionally leave a temporary mark that looks like a bruise, but it is not painful. These marks can last anywhere between a few hours to a couple of weeks before gradually fading away entirely.
