Cupping (inverse massage therapy)
Massage therapy is well known for its many benefits like increasing circulation, promoting healing and relaxing the muscles, Cupping works as a reverse of massage therapy, Whereas in massage therapy, the healer exerts pressure, in cupping the muscles are decompressed. When the warm cup with the vacuum under it is moved across the body, it pulls the muscle and skin away from the bones. In this way, it creates an empty space which immediately receives a new infusion of blood. As the blood circulates in the space, it brings with it fresh oxygen and nutrients. In this way, cupping therapy works to improve blood circulation and relaxes the muscle by removing knots
Cupping can be used as a stand alone treatment or can be combined with many other massage treatments. Highly recommended for body builders, sport enthusiasts and athletes, deep muscular problems, scarring from operations and injuries, Fibromyalgia and anti-ageing facials or just a nice relaxing massage
This traditional, time-honoured treatment remains favoured by millions of people worldwide because it is safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders.
Pain relief is one of the main reasons people use cupping. Cupping targets soft tissue with pressure applied to pain points and areas of swelling. This helps to increase blood flow and give the tissues important nutrients and oxygen. It’s believed to help release tissues deep within the body, relax tense muscles and ease stiffness that’s often associated with neck and back pain, migraines and rheumatism.
