Therapy Zone Natalia Sowinska - Cupping therapy

Massage cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. At the beginning of the massage therapist puts oil on the body and performs gentle massage. In the next part cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. Normal cupping therapy leaves marks because there is created suction under cups as they sit on your back about 15 minutes. While there's suction with cupping massage, it doesn't leave a mark because the cups continue to move.

Chinese cupping therapy

Therapy Zone Natalia Sowinska - Chinese cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin. Through suction, the skin is drawn into the cup by creating a vacuum in the cup placed on the skin over the targeted area. The vacuum can be created via a mechanical pump or rubber cups. The cup is usually left in place for somewhere between five and fifteen minutes. Cupping therapy mobilizes the immune system to fight. It often works wonders for patients with the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, red itchy skin conditions (though cups are not applied to inflamed areas), allergies, fevers, aches and myriad other pains.

Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury or energetic blockage under the area that was cupped. The skin discoloration can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, but is rarely painful. Once the marks have cleared, the procedure can be repeated until the condition or ailment is resolved.
