Cupping - To stimulate circulation and stretch superficial fascia.

Cupping has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture, but is a very useful tool in Remedial Massage as well.  I like to express 2 philosophies with regard to Cupping, and let you decide which aligns with your own belief system. Please ask if you would like to understand more about this amazing accompaniament to any treatment.

Cupping can be a part of your massage or the main focus of your treatment.  Essentially Cupping uses the direct opposite technique from usual massage strokes (suction V's compression) for a very similar end result, and many people find using both techniques during a massage can bring better results for them than either technique used singularly.

When using Cups during a Treatment, they can be left static (in 1 place) or Glided along the length of the target muscle ... it depends on what you are trying to achieve.
