Cupping?? What’s That??

Posted on September 7th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

Today I had training in a new modality…cupping. Having had cupping service provided to me, I’m excited to have the knowledge to now provide this service to my clients.

Massage Cupping is a bodywork technique adapted from traditional Chinese fire cupping, which uses suction and negative pressure to loosen and release muscles and draw out toxins, but without the fire. Massage Cupping uses cups made of soft rubber or plastic. They are suctioned onto the skin so the tissue and fascia are drawn up inside. Pretty cool huh?

What a Massage Therapist does is determine the extra tight muscles (or fascia) and places the cups usually along the length of stiff area. It sounds soo simple to be soo effective, but trust me within a short amount of time during your session you will feel the difference.

Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.
