Fire Cupping, Body Vacuuming or Suction Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique of healing that has found its place in the modern world. Massage cupping is a modified method of cupping therapy used in traditional chinese medicine (TCM). A suction gun is used to create a negative air pressure vacumn in the cups placed on the skin. This negative suction is able to release rigid soft tissues and muscles and bring blood flow to stagnant skin. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, the skin will turn red, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface.
Massage cupping is an effective addition to any spa or healing session. The cups are inexpensive, fun and result oriented. You will be amazed at the effective treatment from these Suction Cupping devices. Our customers often feel a deep relaxing warmth during a Cupping session and a tingling sensation that lasts long after the treatment has ended.
Cupping kits usually come with different numbers of cups that allow for simultaneous treatment in different painful areas. The larger cups are used for large areas such as the back while smaller cups are used on the arms and legs. Some cupping practitioners will even add medicinal oils to the treatment. The increased blood flow from the suction areas allows for a deeper absorption of the essential oils. Our more expensive cupping sets come packaged with magnetic poles of North and South orientation which allows for balanced stimulation of the treatment points.
