What is Cupping Therapy?
It is an ancient form of alternative medicine where a therapist places cups on your body for a few minutes to create a suction on your skin. There are many reasons someone would want cupping therapy. Cupping therapy may benefit you if you need help with:
• Blood Flow and circulation
• Myofascial loosening
• Relaxation and general well-being
During a cupping session, the therapist will place a cup on your back and use a tool to suction out the air between the cup and your body, creating a vacuum effect. This causes your skin to rise and become red as your blood vessels start to expand. You might experience dynamic or static cupping during your massage session. Dynamic cupping is where a therapist moves the cup around the back to loosen the fascia. Or, your therapist might practice static cupping on your back, which consists of finding the tense and restricted areas and leaving the cups on those tight areas for a period of time. The cups are usually left on your skin for 10-15 minutes. At Lifestyle Massage + Bodywork we offer dry cupping only. If you are looking for wet cupping, try a local acupuncturist in the area.
