Our Cupping Therapy Gig Harbor WA is not some new or fancy beauty
advancement. In fact, it is a medicinal procedure that dates back to centuries. Our service is just a replica of ancient practice involving the use of cups that are used for suction. These cups could be of glass, wood, or metal. This ancient technique comes from Chinese, Egyptian, or Middle Eastern culture. At SJ therapy massage we make sure that you get to experience the true essence of this therapy. We want to make sure that you get benefit from this therapy in its true sense.
The basic idea behind cupping therapy is to enhance the body’s energy flow and address imbalances in its energy pathways. It helps boost circulation and expel toxins by the suction that cups create. They will mobilize blood flow to the affected area and aid in recovery. The suction’s negative pressure releases muscular tension, lifts connective tissues, and increases lymphatic fluid flow. All in all, suction simultaneously works on different fronts offering different benefits.
Depending on the area that needs to be treated, you would lie down with your face either up or down. To guarantee a proper seal for the cups, the skin is cleansed with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any oils or lotions.
2. Suction creation
The cups are suctioned in any of the following ways:
● The cup is placed on the skin after its interior has been momentarily heated by a flame. The skin is sucked into the cup as a result of the vacuum created when the air within cools down.
● Modern cups have an attached pump to generate suction without using fire. To generate the required suction, our practitioner presses the apparatus.
