What is Massage Cupping?
Updated: Feb 6
Do You Have Issues in Your Tissues?
Massage Cupping is a form of bodywork therapy that feels great and is beneficial on many levels. It can quickly accomplish the goal of “clearing internal waters.” We are a walking history of our lives. Every surgery, illness, injury, and even exposure to toxic substances throughout our lives may still be present in our physical bodies. Even though our bodies are brilliant in their attempts to protect us from the effects of our history, their capacities are still limited. The incredible demands of today’s lifestyles affect our systems negatively, and we become fatigued and sluggish. Eventually we can move into a diseased state.
With massage cupping we can
Elevate hydration levels, re-invigorating the “rivers of life” in our body of water.
Clear out the old debris at a systemic level and all the way down to the cell.
Release tight tissues from old injuries and scars with the accompanying disfigurement and compensatory patterns that our bodies develop.
Move into a state of health with our systems functioning at their optimal level.
Massage Cupping is a form of VacuTherapy which is performed using suction cups. Unlike static cupping used in Eastern Medicine techniques, the cups are kept in motion. The suction used with the cups can be created manually or with a VacuTherapy machine (also called MediCupping). The benefit of the machine is the ability for the therapist to easily adjust the suction and maintain the consistency of the suction. At Blue Lotus Wellness we offer both types of VacuTherapies to meet your needs.
Massage Cupping can produce a profound level of healing and pain relief through nervous system sedation. At the same time, it makes the body feel invigorated. It stimulates circulation and promotes a hydrated glow, separates tight tissue layers, and drains lymph fluid. We can use Massage Cupping to work more deeply to help loosen adhesions of tissue layers, facilitate the muscles to move more independently, and stimulate healthy elimination of accumulated debris in the tissues, organs, and systems.
