Cupping at Fluid Health
Myofacial cupping is an form soft-tissue therapy in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.
A lot of people find it very effective for many reasons, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, detoxification, relaxation and well-being.
During a cupping session, your therapist will use a flame to draw oxygen out of the glass cup. As the fire goes out, the cup is placed on the skin.
As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand.
The cup is generally left in place for up to 3 minutes. The cup may also be pushed up and down your skin to lift the fascia of the muscle, in order to lengthen the muscle and encourage blood to the surface.
Vacuum cups are made of plastic or silicone, and the suction is created by a small pump rather than a flame.
After the treatment
Your skin may have the distinctive “cupping bruises”’ after the treatment, as seen on celebrities such as Michael Phelps. It’s important to drink plenty of water after a treatment to help eliminate toxins from the body.
All of the practitioners at Fluid Health are experienced in various types of cupping. To find out more, call us on 03 99391133.
