Cupping Therapy of North Atlanta
Massage Cupping is a modality I have added to my Neuromuscular Massage Practice. Practicing since 1998, I have explored many modalities to add to my massage sessions to speed healing and insure my clients get the best result from their time with me.
Cupping is an ancient technique dating back to Egypt around 3,500 years ago. The action of Cupping is negatve pressure, rather than tissue compression. It is safe, comfortable, and affords many positive results for many health disorders.
Creating suction and negative pressure helps release congested, rigid tissue. It helps to drain excess fluid and is a great way to rid the body of toxins. Cupping lifts the fascia, loosens sticky, adhesive tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant muscles and tissue. The pulling action allows a deep relaxation to move through the body because cupping engages the parasympathetic nervous sysem. Positve health results are many with Cupping and many condtions can be treated with Cupping.
Skin discolorations can and do occur with Cupping. These discolorations are not bruises. When circulation is sluggish and inhibited, oxygen is not fully present in the cells, there is toxic build-up and stagnation. In Chinese Medicine this is known as blood poisen. Symptoms of this are pain and decreased function of the area.
The longer the condition has existed the possiblility of darker discolorations is present. These discolorations can last from hours to 12 days depending on the level of stagnation present. As treatments continue the marks will occur less and less. These marks are not painful and the Petechia (slight subcutaneous discharge of blood) is not capillary rupture as in bruising.
