Cupping Therapy

What Is Cupping?

Cupping can be thought of as the inverse of massage. The suction of cupping uses pressure to pull skin, tissue, and muscle upward rather than applying pressure. At Sage Blossom, cupping involves placing silicone cups on the skin, which creates a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised into the cup, enhancing circulation, lymphatic drainage, and fascia release. Cupping helps relieve pain and pulls toxins from the body tissues. Clients recovering from the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, and more will benefit from cupping therapy.

How Does Cupping Feel?

Your LMT applies massage oil on your skin. Then s/he puts the cups over the areas to be treated. A common area to be cupped is the back, although cups work well on other areas too. You usually will feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup. Often, this sensation is relaxing and soothing. Communicate with your LMT. It does not need to be painful! The cups may remain on your body briefly or for longer, and may be moved around or left in place. Each treatment is unique to you.

Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is a blockage under the area that was cupped. The skin discoloration can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks, but is rarely painful. Once the marks have cleared, the procedure can be repeated until the condition or ailment is resolved.
