By The Lake Massage Therapy & Wellness Centre Inc.: Cupping Massage

Cupping Massage originated in China and has been incorporated into modern massage therapy treatments. Cupping has the ability to affect and create movement of body fluids, organs, fascial restrictions, and joints. Cups are applied to the skin and a light suction created in order to lift and separate layers of skin, muscle, and connective tissue. This process also causes the blood vessels to dilate and increase local circulation.

Benefits of Cupping:

  • Remove fascial restrictions to increase range of motion
  • Stimulates hair roots and sweat glands
  • Increases temperature and circulation of skin (create new blood vessels, destroy old)
  • Detoxification from poisons in the body
  • Loosen tight muscles
  • Decrease chronic joint pain related to barometric pressure changes
  • Decompress spinal joints
  • Decreases appearance of scars and cellulite
  • Decreases congestion over lungs
  • Stimulate digestive organs and fluids
  • Effective in decreasing high blood pressure
