CUPPING

An amazing treatment to go along with your massage

We offer cupping together with a therapeutic massage.

Cupping is an ancient therapy that uses cups placed on your back to create a negative pressure, allowing blood and Qi energy to flow much more freely through your body than previously. This non-invasive treatment is great for improving the health of your vital organs and reducing swelling and pain caused by inflammation. Consider it a one-stop anti-inflammatory treatment for all your aches and pains.

Cupping will be applied after the massage.

During a therapeutic massage, a firmer pressure is used and more specific attention is paid to the area (or areas) where you have muscle knots or trigger points.

It is common for cupping to leave distinctive small, circular bruises on the areas where the cups were applied and it is usually painless. These cupping marks are discoloration of the skin due to broken blood vessels just beneath the skin, much like a bruise. This indicates the level of blood and Qi stagnation, toxin accumulation, or dampness accumulation in your body. The colour of the marks reflect the level of stagnation in that area. The darker the colour, the more stagnation present. These harmless marks will slowly fade before disappearing completely after approximately 1 week depending on the skin’s regenerative ability. After regular cupping treatments, you will find that the marks will visibly become lighter and lighter.
