Cupping Massage

Cupping is a massage technique in which local suction is created on the skin to increase blood flow in order to promote healing. Placing suction cups on the body creates a partial vacuum to reduce tension on the skin and tissues underneath.

What is a Cupping Massage?

Cupping is an effective massage technique to increase the body’s blood circulation, remove toxins and promote the healing process. Cupping applies a partial vacuum to relieve tension on the skin and underlying tissues. The relief of tension promotes an increase of blood flow, which helps the body to begin the process of healing damaged areas and remove toxins that have built up over time. Removal of waste substances in the body can lead to a relief of tension without large amounts of pressure being applied. Cupping can be used over any region of the body as long as there is a seal between the skin and cup, therefore cupping is more suited to larger areas of muscles.


Cupping Massage benefits are the following:

  • Release scar tissue and facial adhesions
  • Reduce painful trigger points
  • Improve circulation, blood and lymph circulation
  • Relieve pain
  • Promote mobility and range of motion
  • Improves mature scars
  • Decrease toxins

How does it feel?

Cupping massage is relaxing and generally not painful.  The sensation that is experienced is a pulling of the skin as the cup is moved in a rolling fashion.  Redness or a feeling of warmth is usually experienced after the release of the cup due to increase blood flow to the area.


What is the cupping used for?

  • Increasing blood flow
  • Removing waste products
  • Relieving tension

Cupping is used to increase blood circulation. When cupping is applied to the skin it creates a partial vacuum which reduces the pressure on the skin and tissues underneath. This effect promotes and increases the blood flow which stimulates the body’s healing process.

Cupping also is used to help remove waste products from the muscles. During an increase of blood flow waste products and toxins are removed. The removal of waste products can lead to healthier muscles. Reducing waste products in the muscles prevents tension build up.

Cupping is used to help relieve tension. The cupping massage technique lifts tissues up, relaxing muscles and allowing muscle fibres to move slightly apart. Allowing muscle fibres to move apart slightly, releases tension from the muscles and can increase flexibility.
