Cupping Massage – Cupping is the utilization of silicone cups, held by suction and negative pressure, to massage the body. Cups can be left in place to remove stagnation or moved gently over the skin. Therapeutic applications of cupping have been documented over several thousand years of clinical experience. Cupping drains toxins, increases blood flow to skin and muscles, loosens adhesions, assists in resolving obstruction, muscle soreness, and pain. The skin may turn red with strong massage cupping, this indicates circulation has been brought to the surface.
