Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that has been used for thousands of years to help move excessive and stagnant “qi” or energy in the body. In Western medicine this may look like a big knot between your shoulder blades, tight leg muscles from cycling or scar tissue from a surgery. Cupping can be thought of as an inverse massage. The suction of the cups raises the underlying tissues into the cup, bringing oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area and causes a forced healing process to begin. The blood vessels may break and the body’s own amazing healing mechanism kicks in. Yes, there can be bruises formed after the treatment but it is not a painful therapy. Clients with back and muscle pain and poor circulation will benefit from cupping therapy. This therapy can be added into a massage session, typically at the end of the hands on work to further improve the extent of benefits in a single session.
