Benefits of cupping
By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping massage is a deep tissue massage used to stimulate the peripheral nervous system, bring blood flow to stagnant muscles, loosen adhesions; and drain excess fluid and toxins.
Cumulative Cupping treatments increase muscle endurance, circulation, lung capacity, lymphatic drainage and health maintenance during strenuous activities. Many professional athletes incorporate it into their training to enhance their overall performance, agility and ability to recover from their sports.
The red bruised apearance seen many times on the skin after cupping is dead cellular debris, poisons, stagnation and excess fluids drawn to the surface, thus by cupping, it is the best place for the lymphatic system to drain it away
Cupping is traditionally performed to increase circulation, detoxify the body, and promote healing.
Promote the elimination of stagnation
Intensify metabolism and dermal respiration in the massaged segment of the body
Promote elasticity in the skin
Improve muscle retracting function
Myofascial Release and Trigger Points
Successful MFR stretches the fascia away from the underlying structures. Also occurring along the fascia are Trigger Points. Trigger Points are twisted bundles of fascia that are extremely sensitive to palpation and feel like tough, dense knots along the muscle. Trigger Points cause injuries over time because they break up the normal structure and operation of the fascia. With negative pressure, the fascia is gently stretched and unwinds without the discomfort of force.
TMJ & Sinus Release
Suction helps to open up the joint, and loosens the musculature and fascia around the jaw. When used in tandem with joint manipulation, the pressure and pain associated with TMJ are relieved as inflammation is decreased and nerves are relaxed.
Cupping stretches open, rather than closing the lymphatic vessels. This action actually increases the movement of lymph locally and systemically with cumulative treatments. Increasing Lymphatic output increases the immune system’s ability to detoxify the body and respond to stressors put onto it from disease, chemicals, stress and electromagnetic fields.
