Cupping Massage brings in the ancient art of cupping to the modern Massage Therapy practice. This modality allows for a unique approach to the fascia and body fluids. Cupping has the ability to affect deeper tissue, remove fascial restrictions and increase range of motion.
We use a modern style of plastic cups at The White Birch, that are strategically placed on the body. We can leave them on for various amounts of time durning a treatment, move them around or dedicate a 30 minute treatment session solely to cupping. We use dry cupping only and do not heat our cups. Suction is created within the cup using a special tool. The suction can be mild or strong depending on the clients comfort level.
Cupping causes a very strong circulatory response. Old blood vessels are destroyed and new ones created promoting healing to the area.
Some of the benefits of cupping are listed below:
*Increases range of motion
*Mechanically separates tissue layers breaking down adhesion and scars
* Effective for chronic joint problems
* Brings movement of fresh blood into restricted areas and increases interstitial fluid
