Temple Body Work offers various cupping treatments including stationary cupping, facial cupping, cupping massage and more. Massage cupping is considered an alternative medicine to help with pain management and induces feelings of relaxation and stress relief to ease tension. Cupping therapy offers several advantages including aiding in promoting blood flow and increase blood circulation to muscles and tissue, supplies oxygen to cells, loosens knots, and can release and drain excess fluids and toxins. Massage Cupping has also been used for weight loss and cellulite reduction. Cupping therapy is based on the belief that using suction or vacuum on specific cupping points on a patient’s body can help remove obstructions in the natural energy pathways inside the body and thus cure ailments.
How it works
With the cupping therapy method, the skin, tissue, and muscles are instead pulled upwards to enhance circulation and provide pain management. Massage cupping therapy also utilizes different oils so that the cup can glide easily across the back of the patient. Silicone therapy cups are more typically used for this form of cupping therapy because these therapy cups are softer and more flexible which makes it easier for the practitioner to glide them across the patient’s body. In massage cupping therapy, the muscles are tended to with the application of pressure. Negative pressure is better to help with pain management versus tissue compression.
