Massage cupping is an amazing healing modality adapted from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been around since 1,000 B.C. Cupping is what caused those little circles that appeared on the bodies of Olympic athletes like Michael Phelps and have been causing quite a commotion in the news and on social media.
Cupping can be described as being an inverse massage. Rather than applying direct pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull the skin, tissue and muscle upwards in an effort to break up scar tissue, relax tender muscles and draw out toxins and causes little to no discomfort.
Cupping Can Be Helpful in Treating Conditions Such As:
Tension, headaches or migraines
Joint pain from arthritis
Stress, anxiety, and depression
Digestive and respiratory system issues
Post injury trauma
This traditional treatment technique improves circulation, digestion, relaxation, energy and reduces stress.
Adjustments can help with sports injuries, back and neck pain, muscle fatigue, headaches and much more.
