In addition to releasing tight muscles and increasing range of motion, cupping is also beneficial for conditions such as high blood pressure, sciatica, fibromyalgia, and circulatory and respiratory conditions.
It is also suitable for menstrual problems, edema, insomnia, facial paralysis, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, constipation and the common cold.
Below are some specs on how Cupping Therapy helps to relieve such a wide range of conditions.
Effects on Muscles & Joints
• Increased blood flow to muscles
• Reduced congestion/inflammation from the joint capsule, reducing stiffness
• Removal of lactic acid and metabolic wastes
• Increased range of motion
• Stimulation and secretion of synovial fluid (the fluid that lubricates our joints)
• Post cupped muscles maintain increased temperature and fluid facilitation much longer than traditional therapy.
Effects to the Skin
• Expands blood vessels increasing circulation, functioning of sweat glands, and nutrition supply to tissues.
• Stimulates collagen
• Withdraws stagnant blood
• Detoxification by accelerating secretion of sebaceous matter
• Strengthens skin’s renewal power
Effects on the Circulatory System
• Purifying of the blood
• Improved circulation of blood and lymph
• Increased red and white blood cell activity
• Alters PH from acidic to alkaline
• Very beneficial for hardened arteries by gently stretching and breaking up micro adhesions of the arterial walls.
Effects to the Digestive System
• Stretching action on the abdominal region
• Stimulates digestive organs and peristalsis
• Strengthens digestion overall
• Increased digestive fluids
• Elevated uptake and absorption of nutrients
• The digestive system is positively effected even during back treatments by stimulating the spine and nervous system.
Effects on the Nervous System
• The pulling action sedates nervous system
• Reduction of body pain
• Relaxation of organs
• Effective against depression, anxiety, pain and fatigue
• Improved sleep
Cumulative sessions yield the best results. It takes years for these conditions to build; they cannot always be broken down from your first session. Yet sometimes even in a single treatment, a chronic physical issue may be resolved.
The approach at The Massage Room is to proceed carefully. I like to see how you respond after your first session and develop a safe and effective treatment plan from there, based on your reaction.
This way you recieve the best experience that cupping has to offer without any negative effects that might come from over stimulation from an inexperienced practitioner. I would never start a deep tissue massage with maximum pressure; the same goes for the negative pressure of cupping.
Please choose your cupping therapist carefully.
