Cupping Therapy

Ancient practice to promote wellness

Cupping is a safe, traditional treatment that helps resolve chronic muscle tightness and pain faster than massage therapy alone.

Integrating massage with cupping therapy can help relieve headaches, stress, allergy congestion, muscle tension, back pain, digestion issues…and more!

Cupping is an effective pain management resource
Many athletes use cupping as a form of pain relief for chronic pain. This is not exclusively for elite athletes. Shoulder pain and lower back pain can affect anybody regardless of whether you are an office worker or representing your country at the Olympics.

When using cupping to mitigate pain, the stretching of the muscle in the cup soothes the painful, overactive muscles. As cupping promotes blood circulation this brings a surge of endorphins which are a naturally occurring pain reliever your own body creates. The result is pain reduction and an elevated sense of wellbeing.

Cupping will enhance your mental health
Cupping will help you relax during the treatment and the feeling of relaxation will continue after the cupping session is done. This can help insomnia by improving the quality and length of sleep through the night. Improved sleep helps with physical and mental recovery. When you are not feeling physically it is difficult to fall asleep. When you are not sleeping well, your body will experience more pain. It is a catch 22 situation…. from which you can get out.

Cupping reduce stress by activating your parasympathetic nervous system.
Activating the parasympathetic switches your system from a fight or flight state to a “rest, relax, and recover” state. When activated, it reduces your blood pressure, resting heart rate, and stressful feelings. It also increases the ease with which blood flows, delivering oxygen and nutrients where they’re needed for healing.

Cupping therapy activates the parasympathetic nervous system, initiating relaxation and a greater ability to adapt to stress.

Cupping encourages tissues to release toxins
The negative pressure (suction) involved in cupping encourages your cells to release toxins they may be holding onto, like excess fluids, inorganic substances, bacteria, and metabolic waste. Once released, these toxins travel out of your body through your lymphatic and circulatory systems.

Cupping brings more oxygen in the area…up to 400 times!
After releasing toxins, fresh nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood flows into the area. Oxygen-rich blood is critical for cellular health and can promote overall cellular wellbeing.

Cupping can improve blood circulation
The suction from the cups increases circulation to the area where the cups are placed. The additional blood flow to that area can help relieve muscle tension and promote cell repair. Increasing circulation with cupping also helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Although cupping is not a treatment for any medical condition, it can ease the effects of circulatory-related issues, including spider veins and varicose veins.

Cupping can support your body’s natural healing processes
Better blood flow also means the cells have what they need to function at their best, so the benefits of cupping therapy can extend to faster healing in areas that may not have adequate blood before cupping.

Cupping can clear congestion and help treat asthma
Congestion (the buildup of fluid or phlegm in your lungs) caused by a cold, bronchitis, or even asthma can be treated with cupping. The suction from cups breaks up and expels congestion. It brings oxygen rich blood and lymph toward your lungs and your other respiratory muscles. Cups are usually placed on your back but may be placed on your chest as well. Your therapist may leave the cups in place or may gently glide them in an upward motion to facilitate the movement of the lymph fluid. Facial cupping can also be used to help unblock your sinuses.

Cupping can clear colon blockages and aid digestion
Cupping helps to engage the parasympathetic nervous system, which increases blood flow to the digestive tract. Gentle cupping over the abdomen also stimulates the insides of your digestive organs. It aids in peristalsis (contractions that push food through your digestive tract), helps clear colon blockages, encourages blood and body-fluid to move through your organs, and helps relieve indigestion.

Cupping can ease muscle tension and related pain
Tension in the back of the thighs and the lower back can lead to ongoing discomfort in your lower back. A combination of myofascial therapy and cupping can relieve this tension.

Cupping Packages with Elena

Cupping works best when you get a series of sessions.

  • Cupping removes toxins by stimulating the immune response, both locally and systemically.
  • It also eliminates uric acid, a natural waste product from the digestion of certain foods. Uric acid buildup can lead to high levels of acidity in the blood and urine.
  • Cupping also has a positive effect on the lymphatic system, which is partially responsible for eliminating your body’s waste.

When the flow of lymph is interrupted, it can cause fluid buildup and prevent the body from properly eliminating toxins. Lymphatic drainage massage is one solution to this issue. Similarly, cupping may help increase the flow of lymph and prevent fluid buildup.
