Cupping

Cupping is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. Though cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine, in a way, these cultures were ahead of their time. Today, it’s used to help with relaxation, blood flow, pain and inflammation. Some think of it as a deep-tissue massage.

How Does Cupping Work?

Cupping can sometimes be described as a “tissue distraction release” technique. During the Cupping Process, the cups are glided across different areas of the body in order to lift and separate tissue. By creating suction with negative pressure, it can increase hydration and blood to body tissues, ease up adhesions, rid excess fluids and eliminate connective tissues.

Benefits of Cupping

Cupping is a versatile treatment that can:

  • relax muscles
  • release trigger points
  • improve lymphatic flow
  • increase local circulation
  • release scar tissue adhesion
  • rid excess fluids
  • eliminate connective tissues

Evidence supports Cupping as an effective treatment method for several conditions, such as chronic neck pain, low back pain, and fibromyalgia.

This modality is sometimes used in Physical Therapy and medical massage. However, Cupping should not be performed on skin sites with wounds, infection, burns or active inflammation. Sometimes, it can create bruises on the skin that can last up to two weeks. Bruises typically resolve themselves with time.

How Are The 6D Action Massage Cups Unique?

Unlike traditional methods of cupping which either use static suction or negative thermal pressure, our devices our massage cups work in 6 dimensions and have far more capabilities. Traditional cups are under constant pressure whereas this device allows for pulsating suction which is easier on the skin and prevents heavy and excessively sore bruising. Additionally, these massage cups are specially designed to glide over the skin allowing for more widespread and efficient tissue and fluid release across a body area. Pulsated vacuuming combined with lifting, twisting, and gliding of our 6D Action Massage Cups further enhances the benefits one would receive from traditional cupping.
