Chinese Cupping:

Cupping is a technique that uses small glass or bamboo cups placed onto the skin, suction is created by waving alcohol inside the cup and quickly lighting it before applying it to the skin. The suction draws the skin and superficial muscle layer up into the cup. It is not hot or painful at all, and open flame never goes anywhere near the skin. The suction and negative pressure created by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage myofascial release, blood flow and sedate the nervous system. It is an excellent treatment for tight muscles, to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism and even cellulite.

Cups can be used or stationary, or gently moved across the skin with oil applied (known as Gliding). They are usually left in place for around 10 minutes while the client relaxes. For most clients, it is a relaxing and relieving feeling.

*Bruising should be expected, they shouldn’t be painful, and should subside within about 10 days. (I use both glass and bamboo cups)
