Fire Cupping Therapy
30 Minutes - $60
Regain your freedom of movement with fire cupping.
Fire cupping therapy works by creating a vacuum that pulls the tissues outward, creating a "negative" pressure (as opposed to the "positive" pressure created by traditional massage strokes). By loosening and lifting muscles and fascia, cupping can provide relief up to four inches deep into the tissues, and also serves as an excellent form of myofascial release.
This is a therapy that has been used for over 3000 years and continues to grow in popularity as more and more people discover the incredible benefits of this technique.
Several cups are placed on the skin at a time and left for a few minutes to allow the
suction to do its job. This technique is often used to treat pain and inflammation, loosen fascia and muscle tissue, increase range of motion, improve circulation to an area, move lymph fluid, release trigger points, act as a form of deep massage, boost the immune system, and sedate the nervous system, which makes it calming, and also helps to lower blood pressure.
Fire cupping massage does often leave superficial bruises where the cups were placed. These are harmless and will fade away in 5-10 days. These areas are not to be rubbed or pressed on, nor exposed to extreme cold or heat, until they are gone. Cupping follow-up sessions can take place once the marks have disappeared.
Fire cupping can be added on to neuromuscular therapy sessions at the time of booking for no additional fee.
*Cupping is not be used on those who bleed easily and/or cannot stop bleeding, have skin ulcers, or edema/swelling, have blood clots or have high risk of blood clots, or are taking blood thinners.
