Cupping is super fascinating, and is very helpful and quick when it comes to releasing muscle tension and sedating the nervous system.
Prior to the placement of the cups, your therapist will apply oil and warm the tissue with massage. Once the soft tissue is ready, the cups are attached. Depending on what is needed by the client in a session, your therapist will start to move the cups around or place them in a specific area for 5-15 minutes. When your therapist feels the cups have worked their magic they will remove them.
Note: The suction of the cup can produce redness of the skin or round purple marks (known as: cup kisses)due to the congestion of blood flow. If you are left with these marks after a cupping session please don’t be scared as it’s completely normal and beneficial.
