(Add-on) Cupping is a form of alternative therapy that involves the use of suction cups to stimulate a area by creating blood flow and stretching the connective tissues below the surface. Cupping is used to treat many conditions, including muscle pain, loss of range of motion (ROM), inflammation, and stiffness.
Cupping therapy is a unique and versatile technique that encompasses various methods to address different needs of the body. Among these, dry and wet cupping are the most popular. Dry cupping involves the use of suction cups that are applied to the skin and either left in place for a specific duration or moved along connective tissue areas, a technique known as fascial dragging.
This treatment can take between 5-10 minutes. On the other hand, wet cupping, which is not offered at REMassage, involves creating small incisions in the skin before applying the cups, allowing for the release of blood and toxins from the tissues.
During a cupping session, the therapist will apply the cups to the skin and use a pump or a heat source to create a vacuum effect. The suction created by the cups lifts the skin and tissues, separating them from the underlying muscles and bones. This can help to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote the release of toxins from the body.
Cupping is a relatively quick and non-invasive treatment option that has been used for many centuries in many different cultures. It is generally considered safe when performed by a trained and licensed practitioner.

The modern form of vacuum cupping involves using a mechanical device to create suction instead of the traditional method of heating the cups with a flame to create a vacuum. The mechanical device has made the treatment less painful and more accessible, with greater control over the suction pressure applied.
Cupping therapy is versatile and can be used to treat various conditions, including muscle tension, headaches, back pain, neck pain, and sports injuries. It is also helpful in reducing the appearance of cellulite and improving skin tone and texture.
While cupping therapy is generally safe, it may cause some side effects, such as skin discoloration, tenderness, or mild discomfort, which typically resolve within a few days.
(BaseLine/Call for Scheduling) Machine body cupping is a modern form of cupping therapy that uses an electronic device to create suction on the skin. Unlike traditional cupping techniques that require manual suction or flame-based methods, machine body cupping is a more convenient and controlled approach.
The device allows for the level of suction to be adjusted to meet individual needs, and it can provide continuous or intermittent suction. This form of cupping therapy is a non-invasive and safe method that can be used alone or in combination with other treatments to help improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, alleviate pain, and promote relaxation.
Overall, cupping is a popular alternative therapy that can provide a number of benefits for those suffering from muscle pain and other conditions. It is a valuable tool for many therapists and can be an effective addition to any treatment plan.
