Hi everyone, I hope your summer is off to a good start! I now offer cupping as part of your massage therapy session. Cupping is a useful modality for working into those tight spots that have been with you for awhile. Over time, fascial tissue tends to harden in the position that your body occupies most of the time. That’s why it’s hard to correct your posture–because your fascia is used to being in a certain position. Cupping works by applying a suction, therefore it incorporates the opposite action of deep pressure or deep tissue massage. This suction works on the deeper tissues of the body encouraging them to lengthen and release. If you like to feel your massage and/or you have pain that doesn’t seem to want to go away maybe it’s time to try cupping. Mention this article and I will give you an extra 30 minutes in your massage to try cupping!
