Cupping Massage With Swedish

Never heard of cupping massage? Read on. Cupping massage uses cups (of various sizes) placed directly onto the skin to create localised gentle suction to relax your muscles. The cups are made from silicone and have a dome-shaped top which the therapist pushes in to create the suction. The cup is then moved around on an area of your muscle and the pressure decreases gradually until the therapist presses the dome in again. The cup can be removed at any time by removing the suction. It is suitable for large areas of muscle and is a good option for you if applying pressure to muscles (as with a traditional massage) is not comfortable.

Benefits of cupping massage

This treatment boosts your circulation, which improves the body’s natural processes of waste removal and healing.
Cupping relieves tension in your body by reducing pressure on the skin and underlying tissues.
Cupping supports your body to become more flexible. It does not apply pressure as a traditional massage does but it still helps your tissues get rid of waste products which gives muscles a bit more space so muscle fibres can separate slightly, increasing your flexibility.
Cupping massage is especially beneficial in reducing cellulite.
