What Is Massage Cupping?

Cupping is the application of suction cups to the body. Cupping therapies have been used by healers for thousands of years. Cupping created negative pressure, rather than tissue compression, for superior bodywork. Through cupping, you can achieve loosening and lifting connective tissue, myofascial release and deep tissue work, facilitating the removal of toxins from the body, as well as breaking up and draining stagnation, and increasing the circulation of blood and lymph, all at the same time! Cupping helps with many issues, including loosen tight muscles and connective tissue, decreasing recovery time from injuries, fibromyalgia, trigger points, diminishing scars, stretch marks and varicosities, plus TMJ syndrome. Cupping can also be used for facial rejuvenation and cellulite reduction as well.
