CUPPING MASSAGE is proving to be extremely beneficial and the choice of treatment for many professional athletes. Athletes have labelled Cupping their new "Secret Weapon" for speedy recovery and enhanced performance. Instead of applying manual pressure on the body, Cupping Massage uses suction "cups" to negatively pull upwards on the muscles and tissues, Cupping provides an immediate increase of blood flow to the muscles and tissues increasing the supply of fresh oxygen and nutrients to the injured area, Cupping is the magic tool for efficiently loosening adhesions and restrictions within the fascia, The lift and release from the suction opens and clears blockages of the lymphatic tissue allowing an enhanced flow of the lymphatic system, This results in accumulated excess fluids such as old or new inflammation or lactic acid to be effectively drained. These toxins are drawn to the surface of the skin where they are more effectively removed. The end result is providing the injured area an environment that encourages a quick & effective recovery.
