Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy has been around for thousands of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes cupping as an excellent method of promoting blood flow to stagnant areas in the body.

Cupping therapy is myofascial decompression. While tissue is compressed during a massage, cupping draws the tissue upwards and creates a negative pressure. This technique breaks down fascial restrictions, and adhesions to help increase range of motion. It draws metabolic waste and stagnant (old) blood to the superficial surface so that the lymphatic system can drain it out of the body.

Cupping can leave marks on the body ranging from light pink to a deep red/purple in color. These marks are not bruises. The darker the color indicates the areas with the most tension and stagnation.

Natasha, Joseph, and Jennifer offer cupping therapy.  Inquire about incorporating cupping to your next appointment!
