This modality is done with movement of glass or silicone cups to employ a negative pressure rather than compression to the body to achieve positive results. A large area of tissue is covered with this form of cupping and works great in conjunction with any other massage modality. The positive results of cupping releases rigid soft tissue, loosens adhesions, lifts and opens connective tissue, greatly increases blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles, and helps with the removal of excess fluids and toxins. Further, it stimulates the nervous system for an increased rate of recovery from pain and disease. Cupping therapy is very beneficial for many conditions but not limited to pain relief, sciatica, poor circulation, sports injuries, anxiety, high blood pressure, edema, cellulite, headaches, and fibromyalgia.
