What is Cupping?

Have you ever seen an Olympic swimmer such as Michael Phelps with circular red marks on his back and shoulders? This a form of muscle therapy referred to as "Cupping". Specially designed cups are used during treatment which utilizes negative pressure by suctioning tissue into the cups.  The cups can be left stationary on an area or moved around slowly to loosen muscle and fascia.  A liberal amount of oil is applied to allow a smooth glide over the body.  Fluid is drawn to the surface of the skin encouraging circulation.  The difference between cupping massage versus deep tissue, instead of compressing the tissue, cupping gently lifts the muscle and fascia.  Proper hydration is highly recommended as fluid is drawn to the surface of the skin. The cups may leave marks on the body especially on highly vascular areas such as the neck when left stationary and may last a few days depending on each individual. The entire process is gentle and not painful.
