Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese practice involving the use of suction cups to stimulate a number of health benefits. The suction may be created with the use of glass cups and a flame, or plastic cups with a suction mechanism.


There are two main cupping techniques: stationary and moving (which is used in our studio). Stationary cups are placed on the skin and left for a period of five to 15 minutes in one location, or four to six cups may be applied and removed cyclically in a technique called "flash cupping." These are the methods most commonly used in Chinese medicine.


Moving (or "massage cupping") is the more commonly used form of cupping among massage therapists and other health care practitioners. Prior to applying the cup, oil is administered to the skin to facilitate smooth movement and palpably discover the areas of tension and congestion. Create the vacuum and place the cup on the affected area, then glide it over the surface. A cup may be "parked" for a short time on stubborn knots or over inflamed joints or tissue.


Cupping can be used on the neck, shoulders, back, sacral area, hip, abdomen, thigh, upper arms and calves.
The sensation of cupping is often characterized as deep warmth and tingling, long after the treatment has ended. Cupping is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out yet does not add to it, and is excellent when used as a contrast therapy with cold compresses or liniments.


Massage cupping is often used on the broad areas of the back, which is a wonderful addition to any massage. The treatment is sedating, and people will often descend into a profound state of relaxation (a deep snore is very common!) Larger cups may be used on the back; the strong vacuum will mimic the rolling action of deep tissue massage with no discomfort. The movement may be long and draining, or circular and stimulating, for stubborn knots and areas of rigid tissue.



One of the most enjoyable aspects of this technique is the subtle nuance of the movements. Creativity provides a variety of methods, and alteration of pressure and speed produces different sensations. For example, the edge of the cup can be used to "scoop" in a cross-fiber movement, while vigorous circles feel marvellous on the hips, thighs and shoulders. Long strokes down the sides of the spine and along the ribs provide ease to rib cage expansion and breathing.



The cupping therapy can be used to treat chronic muscle pain and stiffness, common cold symptoms, high blood pressure, anxiety, headaches, fibromyalgia, and cellulite.
