Cupping is a practice with ancient roots. One of the oldest medical textbooks in existence, The Ebers Papyrus, speaks of cupping being used in Egyptian cultures in 1,550 B.C. In all forms of Cupping Therapy, a vacuum is created by having a therapist place special cups on your skin to create suction.
When the vacuum in the cup is applied to the skin, it sucks the soft tissue with negative pressure, for a powerful and stimulating massage like sensation. The suction works to relax stiff muscles and tissue, and promotes overall well being, blood flow, and relaxation.
Dynamic Cupping is designed using silicone cups that fit seamlessly into a massage treatment. It uses the same principles of cups; however, silicone cups can mold with any body part, integrating easily without interrupting the flow of the massage.
The four different sizes of cups will allow massage at any contour of the individuals body; including joints and bony prominence’s. The client will obtain better results from the lift and space that suction from the cups creates giving them the benefit of massage’s typical ‘push’ along with the cups ability to ‘pull.’
