On the deeper therapeutic level, cupping is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headache, fibromyalgia, and neuralgia. Contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of negative pressure massage cupping.
Used on the back, the larger cups will mimic the rolling action of myofascial release without discomfort to the client. The variety of movements can be long and draining, circular and vibrational for stimulation and for areas of stubborn knots and rigid tissue.
The increased blood supply to the local muscles and skin will bring nourishment and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems to carry away stagnation and toxins.
Another benefit of negative pressure is that it really feels great, and is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out, yet does not add to it. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body.
