Cupping massage is a type of therapeutic treatment that has its roots in ancient Chinese medicine. The practice involves placing either silicone or plastic cups on the skin, usually on the back, and creating a vacuum seal, which results in suction. This draws up the underlying tissues, promoting blood flow and helping to relieve muscle tension. The cups may be placed statically in once place or dynamically moved across the target area.
Cupping is a great way to supplement a massage. It's considered beneficial for reducing pain, inflammation, boosting blood circulation, promoting relaxation, and well-being. It can also serve as a type of deep-tissue massage. Red cupping marks may be left on the treated area for up to a few weeks later but rest assure, the marks aren't painful. In addition to cupping, Swedish massage techniques are applied during the session.
