Cupping is an ancient method for relieving sore muscles by promoting blood flow and stimulating the release of toxins. It is removing stagnant blood caused by injury/illness/trauma/daily stress on the body.

Cups are glided on body to provide a deep tissue massage. Massage is very in depth and the process involves stretching out and unwinding the fascia. Any adhesion is broken up as well.


Cups are then left stationary for a short period of time. This is a very small part of the treatment.

It is relaxing and comfortable, however it may bring some of those toxins to the surface, which will cause temporary marking. They will fade within 24 hours and usually disappear within three to four days, though in some cases they may linger for a week or two. 

 

 

What are those marks the Cups Leave?

 

On some occasions cupping produces no marking because pathogens and other unwanted factors are not there to be drawn to the surface. However a lot of the time it will. If there is stagnant blood it will cause a marking on the skin called a Cupping Mark.

 

Cupping marks are not bruises. When we have a bruise it is tender to touch (due to trauma). After cupping there is no such accompanying tenderness.

 

Cupping marks will fade within 24 hours and usually disappear within three to four days.

 

Markings that are left on the body after cupping vary due to illness/injury
