Cupping Massage Therapy

Cupping is a form of ancient alternative medicine in which your massage therapist places special cups on your back and neck (or any other area being treated) to create suction. You may have seen the results of this treatment on some professional athletes, as it is a popular recovery therapy. 

This type of therapy also acts as another form of deep tissue massage. We urge people to try it at least once! We also offer this service at no extra charge! 

 

Benefits of Cupping

A cupping massage can help with:

  • Relieves pain and tension

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Improves blood flow

  • Relaxes the body

  • Relieves tension headaches

  • Helps with sports & other physical recovery

  • Breaks up scar tissue 

Does it hurt or leave marks?

After receiving cupping, you will more than likely have marks or bruising. These typically do not cause pain or discomfort after the treatment. You may experience tenderness in the treated area, however. Since the cups create suction, it is bringing blood to the surface of the skin (same idea as a hickey) resulting in the circular bruises you may see.
