Chinese cupping massage (running/migrating cups)

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.

Cupping massage has an excellent anti-cellulite effect. When suction is applied on the skin, the reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Since cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance. Patients can request treatment to remove sagging buttocks, saddlebags, flabby inner thighs and any other. During massage and after you can feel discomfort or pain caused by tissue aspiration or intense hand massage. The next day after massage you can feel muscle fatigue as after strenuous exercise.
