Cupping & Deep Tissue Massage
Cupping is an ancient form of deep tissue massage. Hollow devices made out of silicone are placed on the skin. Suction is created inside the cup by sucking the air out with a special pump. This suction causes the skin to rise and this brings the blood flow to the area. Cups need to be applied to hairless smooth areas of skin because if hair is present a suction seal is not created.
There are two main techniques that can be used used within a cupping massage. A number of static cups being placed on the skin, which is best for localised problems and applying carrier oil to the skin gliding cups can be used over the tension areas. Gliding cups are more suitable where the whole body needs to be stimulated and where a release of muscle tension is the main goal. Moving a cup helps to separate lesions and promotes myofascial release. Also cupping can help to stimulate tissues and blood vessels as deep down as four inches.
Vicki combines cupping with deep tissue massage to get a extremely therapeutic treatment that is tailored for your needs. The combination may help ease tight fibrous bands of contracted muscular tissue. Help with chronic muscle tension, relieve stress, anxiety, migraines, headaches, reduce the build up of lactic acid, increase joint mobility, break down scar tissue and reduce chronic pain. Reducing pain and discomfort in the major muscle groups.
Cupping can be effective for Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and skin problems such as eczema and acne. Increasing the bodies circulation with cupping may also help to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite on the hips and thighs.
