Cupping has been around for thousands of years and involves suction, also known as negative pressure. The silicone cups become an extension of the hands of the therapist, to decompress and create negative pressure, which seamlessly lifts and releases muscle adhesions versus performing the classic compression of massage.
Cupping works out fascia, stimulates lymphatic system, loosens cellulitis, as well as rejuvenates skin.
There are different methods of cupping, including:
- Static on the trigger points
- Different tempo and suction.
It’s said that 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of a deep tissue massage.
