Cupping is an ancient therapy that is still popular today. When applied to the skin, suction is created which draws an increase in blood and qi (vital energy) to an area of injury or imbalance. Cupping achieves excellent results for a broad range of disorders including cellulite, stretch marks, scars, repetitive strains, inflammation, chronic fatigue, digestive problems and more. Benefits of cupping include increased range of motion, reduction in pain, reduced swelling and inflammation, improved blood flow and strengthening the immune system.

The massage therapist may use a combination of stationary and moving cups during the session. Stationary cups are suctioned onto the skin and left in place for a set time, usually between 5 and 10 minutes. During this time, the massage therapist may glide silicone cups over different areas of your body using a lighter suction. Different sized cups are used as we take into account the contours of your body.
