About Cupping

What is Cupping?

We refer to cupping as a reverse deep tissue/massage with lymphatic drainage effects! We use a suction device to expand the tissue and create space for circulation and blood flow. It creates a controlled inflammatory response to specific areas that need special attention. Cupping can help with everything from muscle tension to cold/flu, migraines, twisted ankle etc. Basically anything related to the circulatory system, musculoskeletal system and immune system!

What Does Cupping Feel Like?

Cupping can be tailored to each patient just like a massage. It should not be intolerable.

The sensation feels like tight, strong pressure. It almost feels like your muscles are engaging!
