Cupping uses suction to draw muscle & tissue up, like a reverse massage. A single Cupping treatment can have the same effect as three or more deep tissue massages.
The negative pressure pulls tension & toxins out of the underlying tissue, increasing the cleansing flow of lymph & allowing for fresh oxygenated nutrition-rich blood to flow to the deeper musculature.
Cupping is used to relieve pain, treat stiff tendons & muscles, boost immune function & improve digestion, always while promoting relaxation & well-being.
Please expect Cupping marks (not bruises) to linger for up to a week.
