What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping is an ancient form of massage therapy which decompresses soft tissues using vacuum suction, unlike other forms of massage that compresses soft tissues. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
During cupping, the cup gently sucks to your skin and lifts underlying soft tissue into the cup. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, remove toxins and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
How does it feel?
Cupping is very relaxing and generally not painful. The sensation that is experienced is a pulling of the skin as the suction of each cup is attached to various parts of the back and shoulder areas. Redness or a feeling of warmth is usually experienced after the release of the cup due to increase blood flow to the area.
Dry Cupping Therapy
Working with glass cups, I strategically placed them on the skin, then the air inside the cup is suctioned out. The cups stay in place between 5 to 10 minutes.

Benefits to Cupping Therapy
While their are many benefits with Cupping Therapy, the primary purpose is to enhance the circulation of blood to promote cellular repair and to remove toxins and waste from the body. Other benefits include:
Cupping dilates topical capillaries and increases dermal blood flow, which has been proved by numerous studies. Blood vessels in the treated areas by cupping are dilated by release of vasodilators such as adenosine, noradrenaline, and histamine, which leads to increased blood circulation.
Cupping induces comfort and relaxation on a systemic level and the resulting increase in endogenous opioid production in the brain leads to improved pain control.
Cupping removes noxious materials from skin microcirculation and interstitial compartment areas.

What to expect after treatment?
Mild soreness is to be expected from the buildup of lactic acid in the muscle tissue, but less soreness than a deep tissue massage. Bruises are to be expected and can last up to a week. Physical exertion and heat are not recommended after the treatment.
After Session Care
When your session is over, you may feel the same as before your session started. You may also feel a bit lightheaded. Here’s what you should do no matter how you feel.
