Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a traditional, time-honored treatment that remains favored by people worldwide because it is safe, comfortable, and remarkably effective for many health disorders. Cupping uses suction, rather than compression, for bodywork; ranging from releasing the connective tissue and knots in muscles to lymphatic drainage. This treatment causes the tissues of the body to release toxins, stimulates the lymphatic, skin, and circulatory systems, clear colon blockages, reduce stretch marks and improves varicose veins. Some muscular problems can be relieved quicker and less painfully with cupping then with other massage methods. This relaxing feel will last for hours or even possibly days after treatment.

***Cups that are left stationary on the body will work to pull up toxins that have remained stagnant in the body. Sometimes these toxins will leave a temporary mark on the body. Often this mark is confused as a bruise but it is not. Bruising is caused by blunt force trauma to the skin, which this treatment is not. The marks can range from very light discoloration to a darker more purple color. These marks will last anywhere from a few hour to a few days depending on how many toxins are stagnant in the person’s body.

**All cupping treatments use an oil for lubrication on the skin. Oil products help to provide longer lasting glide on the skin and help the cups to secure steady suction.

Conditions that cupping can help:   High blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, fibromyalgia, varicose veins, joint pain, asthma, digestive problems, cellulite, chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, menstrual discomfort, plantar fasciitis, muscle pain, tennis elbow, bursitis, wrinkles, and the list is growing everyday. 

Treatments:

Silicone Cups

Add cupping to a deep tissue/swedish massage:

60min-$70   90min-$90

These cups are made of a flexible silicone material so that they can easily glide over bones, joints, and more rounded surfaces. This style is great for any joint treatment or for lymphatic drainage.

 

Facial Cupping/Sinus Treatment

45min- $50

Small facial cups are used to improve overall tonicity of the skin to help reduce appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. This treatment is also great of anyone with sinus issues. The cups help to open up and drain the sinuses to provide great relief from usual sinus pressure. This treatment also includes a neck/shoulder massage. **Note this cupping style does not leave marks on the face.

Cupping Blanket

This treatment uses plasitc cups, equipped with positive or negative polarity magnets. The cups are placed on the body and a hand pump is used to apply the suction. After the treatment is finished, silicone cups are used to promote lymphatic drainage. 

45min- $55

During this treatment the entire back is lined with cups that are affixed with both positive and negative polarity magnets. The suction of the cups along with the magnets will work to release overall tension in the back muscles and also to realign the body’s magnetic energy flow. While the cups are working on the back, enjoy a relaxing leg/foot massage. **This treatment usually results in multiple visible marks on the back from all the toxins being pulled to the surface of the skin. Clients are advised to drink lots of extra water and try to stick to a healthy diet for the next 24-48 hours.
