Cupping Therapy has been utilized as a healing tool for about 4,000 years. Today we use vacuum cups to create the suction that allows the release of rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
The cupping marks that are sometimes left are not bruises, there is no trauma, but is a sign of increased blood flow or a release of toxins. Theses marks will disappear in 2 hours to a couple of weeks and are not usually painful.
The treatment is not painful. I am often told it feels good and quite frequently asked to create more suction because of the relief it gives.
The models below are my collegue Cindy Kyle and myself. We both felt the treatments to be very beneficial and long lasting.
Cupping can be beneficial for a myriad of conditions, please feel free to call for more information.
