FloAdvisor #8: Three Benefits of Cupping Massage

Have you seen how cupping has become one of the techniques of massage favored by sports people? It is manly used for treating muscular pain, but this ancient technique is being used more and more in Spas to give wellbeing to their members.

Where did cupping originate?
Cupping has been used since old ages, so much so that some cultures have made it part of their medicine (Middle East, China, Japan and Korea).

It is a millenary therapy because more than 3.000 years ago, the Egyptians, Greeks, Sumerians, Persians, Romans and Chinese left writings about its use, and over time, Traditional Chinese Medicine has perfected it.

What kind of cups are they?
There is an assortment of cups, made of bamboo, ceramic, glass and more recently plastic and latex are used for massage. Some are heated, so that when they come into contact with the skin they “stick” to it in suction.

Plastic and latex cupping are most employed for massaging since it does not involve the use of a flame. This massage is totally unpainful.

Just like in the film Karate Kid, that Jackie Chan did, it seemed like magic how the pain disappeared. We can say then, in a sense that is how it is when you get a massage through cupping: Magical!

Even though they are associated to pain relief, this is not the only thing they do. Massage through cupping is a great help in body and emotional health.

Benefits of massage through cupping

  • Relaxation and wellbeing: even though it works mainly on the dermis, it also extends into the muscle. This massage on the skin and muscle is very relaxing. This is why you can reach a deep state of relaxation and wellbeing.
  • Eliminates toxins: the aim of the massage is to move stagnant organic fluids such as lymph and blood. The blood comes up to surface of the skin and comes in contact with the oxygen. This process allows toxic substances in the body to be released and the energy, once again can flow through your body.
  • Emotional wellbeing: in Traditional Chinese Medicine, all those points related to your feelings are on your back, a massage through cupping will also stimulate those organs associated with each feeling.

You just have to try this millenary massage with cups! It will give you such wellbeing, not only on a physical level, but also emotionally!
