Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction.  This can relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It can also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

Massage Cupping has also been used for weight loss and cellulite reduction. Silicone therapy cups are more typically used for this form of cupping therapy because these therapy cups are softer and more flexible which makes it easier for the practitioner to glide over the muscles.

In massage cupping therapy, the muscles are attended to with the application of vacuum pressure.With the cupping therapy method, the skin, tissue, and muscles are instead pulled upwards to enhance circulation and provide pain management.

Massage cupping therapy also uses massage therapy oils, so that the cup can glide easily across the muscles. Massage cupping can be used to help with pain management and induces feelings of relaxation and stress relief to ease tension.
