Cupping and Other Modalities
Cupping is an ancient modality that is used in traditional medicine around the world. It is a form or suction or vacuum that is placed on the skin. It draws up the tissues effecting the body up to four inches below.
Cupping therapy is the best deep tissue massage available. It increases blood flow, improves circulation, moves the lympahtic system, unbinds the chest for upper respiratory issues, clears and breaks up scar tissue, unblocks and moves the colon, etc.
It is safe for all ages. There are different levels of suction and different types of cups. Light, moderate and deep cupping refers to the amount or strength of suction used. For example fire cupping is the strongest and is used for deep tissue work. While facial cupping is the lightest and used for lymphatic drainage.
