Cupping therapy is another form of alternative treatment used in combination with Massage Therapy.
At CMSTC certified Cupping Therapists make use of Silicon Cups to assist loosening connective tissues and restore blood flow to areas which may have myofascial restrictions.
Will it bruise me? With cupping, metabolic debris that has been trapped in the tissue is released. In a typical massage, this debris gets dumped into your lymphatic system and filters out. Negative pressure from the cups causes debris to be pulled to just under the skin. These cupping marks are generally not sensitive to the touch as there was no blunt force.
