Cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment remaining favored by millions of people worldwide because it is safe, comfortable, and remarkably effective for many health conditions. It's the use of negative pressure, or suction, rather than compression for bodywork ranging from myofascial release to lymphatic drainage- and everything in between! Cupping rapidly facilitates rigid soft tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up adhesions, and drains stagnation while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in a way not possible with compression.
Negative pressure massage really feels great! The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep while receiving treatment. People are often surprised at how relaxed, warm and light they feel - hours...sometimes even days afterward.
