Cupping 101


Got issues in your tissues?

Dating back to ancient Egypt, cupping therapy has been a natural way to heal the body on a variety of levels for centuries around the globe. Massage Cupping ™ Bodywork Therapy produces profound healing through the nervous system in the same way as traditional cupping. Stimulating the skin by increasing circulation, it promotes a hydrated glow, while separating fused tissue layers and draining lymph. The vacuum effect of the cup works deeply; loosening restrictions, it facilitates the muscles and fascia to function better. Thereby stimulating healthy elimination of accumulated debris in the tissues, organs and systems.

We are a walking history of our lives. Every injury, illness, surgery and even the toxic substances that we have been exposed to from conception onward may still be present in our bodies. While amazing in their efforts to protect us from the effects of our history, our bodies’ capacities are limited. Due to the demands that today’s lifestyles make on our systems, we become fatigued and sluggish. Cupping is great way to help clear out the “yuck” all while stimulating the relaxation response – and that’s never a bad thing!
