Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. The suction may facilitate healing with blood flow.
Many Taoists believe that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.
People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
At Massage Sense we offer Cupping as a complement to our Sports and De-Stress Massage, not as a singular treatment.
During a cupping treatment, a cup is placed on the skin and then suctioned onto the skin.
At Massage Sense we use rubber pumps to create suction versus more traditional heat methods.
The cup is set in place for a set time, usually between 5 and 10 minutes Your skin may turn red as the blood vessels respond to the change in pressure.
There aren’t many side effects associated with cupping. The side effects you may experience will typically occur during your treatment or immediately after.
You may feel lightheaded or dizzy during your treatment. You may also experience sweating or nausea.
After treatment, the skin around the rim of the cup may become irritated and marked in a circular pattern.
Other side effects may include: mild discomfort, or hematoma (bruisers)
