Massage cupping is a modified version of "cupping therapy," which has been used extensively in Chinese medicine for several thousand years. By creating suction, massage cupping is used to drain excess fluids and toxins; stimulate the nervous system; increase circulation; and loosen adhesion's and muscle knots. The sensation of cupping is often characterized as deep warmth and tingling, long after the treatment has ended. The skin will redden with strong massage cupping, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface. Application of liniments, analgesics, or essential oils immediately following a cupping treatment will aid absorption deep into the tissue. The increased local blood supply will nourish the muscles and skin and allow toxins to be carried away.
