The benefits of cupping is to release toxins and get rid of disease in the body, the bruising you may notice is not a bruise like someone damaging the tissue, but more of dead blood coming to the surface, the more you cup that area the lighter and healthier it becomes. If there is just redness, it’s also creating blood flow in the area to facilitate healing. Cupping releases the tissue so much faster than using the hands, and yes, we still use our hands but if there is an area that is tough, we recommend adding cupping to your massage. So, in a nutshell, cupping is great for stimulating blood flow, and moving lymph and loosening fascia for a speedy recovery.
A wonderful ancient technique has found its place in the modern world of healing. Cupping Therapy is based on the common practice of Chinese cupping therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience its subtle power.
By creating suction and negative pressure, Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways. Cupping Therapy is versatile and can easily be modified to accomplish a range of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release.
Cupping wakes the body up and makes it feel invigorated, at the same time producing a profound level of healing through nervous system sedation.
Cupping stimulates the skin by increasing circulation while separating fused tissue layers and draining lymph to promote a smooth appearance and healthy glow.
Cupping works deeper by loosening adhesions, facilitating the muscles to operate more independently and stimulating healthy elimination of accumulated debris in the tissues, organs and systems.
A word on Cupping marks
The most common misunderstanding regarding one of the most powerful and beneficial after effects of Cupping, is the marks that sometimes result.
When injuries occur deep in the muscle, bleeding often occurs causing deep bruises. There will also be edema in the area involving the coagulation of sticky proteins. The combining presence of these elements usually results in stagnation of circulation to the area - resulting in pain, dysfunction, and chronic conditions.
The vacuum formed by Cupping draws up the old non-circulating stagnant blood and sticky fluids from the area, bringing them up to the surface and away from the injury so that healthy free circulation can be restored to the affected area, thus creating space for oxygen, living cells and nutrients for faster recovery.
Where there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and toxins present in the body, Cupping can leave marks which indicates that the stagnation or disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface.
Once people understand what these marks are, and feel the results - the concerns disappear.
The color and pattern of the marks depend on the level of stagnation in the area, and range from a bright red to dark purple, usually lasting 3 days to a week - sometimes longer if the person is very sick or sedentary. If there is no stagnation present, there will be only a pink marking which disappears in a few minutes to a couple of hours.
If the person receiving treatment sweats alot on a daily basis - no marks may ever occur.
People who live/work/play in toxic environments (or were exposed to a heavy dose of toxic material) may consistently mark.
Sites where there is old trauma or injury may require multiple Cupping treatments to remove all stagnation. You will find in follow up treatments the marks will be progressively lighter as the pathogens are systemically removed from the body.
