This therapy takes its name from the cups that are used to create a vacuum effect over the stagnate areas of the body. It acts as a reverse massage, pulling the tissues upwards instead of pressure being applied. Once the cup is in place, it can be moved along the skin using oils in a process called sliding cupping. This therapy works by loosening adhesions and increasing blood circulation. It wakes the body and makes it feel invigorated, while at the same time producing a profound level of relaxation. 

Cupping therapy is often used to:

  • Soften tight muscles

  • Increase circulation to tissues
  • Open lymphatic pathways, draining toxins
  • Relax the nervous system
