Cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment favored by millions of people worldwide.  Most Americans became aware of it thanks to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

It is NOT BRUISING, but a safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders.  It uses suction, rather than compression for bodywork.  It rapidly facilitates rigid soft tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up and drains stagnation while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in ways not possible using compression.

When the cups move (massage cupping, rolling cupping) Negative Pressure Massage really feels great. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body.  People are often surprise at how relaxed, warm and light they feel--hours, and even sometimes, days afterwards.

Cupping Therapy causes tissues to release toxins, stimulate the lymphatic, skin and circulatory systems, and other benefits.  On the deeper therapeutic level, Cupping is beneficial for many conditions including Asthma, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, and much more.

Cupping (suction) Therapy is a great form of body work.  It can help with:

  • Traumatic Injuries
  • Chronic Conditions
  • Trigger Points
  • Lymphatic Drainage
  • Myofascial Release

I have had good success with cupping to help relieve pain associated with TMJ Syndrome, so contact me and let's see what I can do for you!

Please note:  I do NOT do Fire Cupping (which employs the use of glass cups heated up with a small flame and applied to the body, using the lack of oxygen to create a vacuum)

I use Medical Grade Silicone cups and Plastic  (Kangzhu) cups.
