Cupping massage is an alternative to deep tissue massage that uses deep pressure to reach the deeper layers of muscles. The purpose of deep massage is to help break up and get rid of scar tissue from previous injuries and adhesion (stuck together tissue) from the stresses of daily living.Is cupping in acupuncture dangerous or painful?
Cupping may seem painful because of the dark marks the treatment leaves behind, but people who go through the treatment report that the process is not painful at all. Most patients will experience a sucking sensation, but no pain is involved when the treatment is performed correctly.Does cupping therapy work and what are the benefits?
The benefits of cupping include local pain relief and muscle relaxation. Cupping improves overall health by removing the energy blockages that TCM practitioners identify as barriers to the flow of healthy energy or qi. For athletes, cupping may help increase blood flow to a particular muscle region or help reduce pain.Does cupping feel good?
No, in fact, cupping therapy should feel really good. When receiving the therapy, your practitioner will stay in the room the entire time. If a cup starts to feel tight or painful, it will be immediately removed. The tissues may be slightly sore for a day or two after treatment, but, generally, relief of symptoms is the result thereafter.
