Cupping Therapy with Jennifer Chee
It is a traditional, time-honored treatment remaining favored by millions of people worldwide because it's safe, comfortable and remarkably effective for many health disorders. It's the use of suction, rather than compression for the bodywork ranging from myofascial release to lymphatic drainage and everything in between!
Cupping rapidly facilitates rigid soft tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up and drains stagnation while increasing blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in ways not possible using compression. On a 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.
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. Clients are surprised at how relaxed, warm and light they feel – hours... sometimes even days afterwards.Traumatic Injuries, Stubborn and Orthopedic Conditions, Deep Tissue and Sports Massage, Trigger Points, Lymphatic Drainage, Abdominal Massage, Neurological Dysfunctions, Myofascial Release and Reflexology. Cupping is especially exceptional in Massage for health maintenance and relaxation.
Stubborn conditions that may have been present for decades are easily resolved with Cupping. Nothing works better at opening up and releasing joints, connective tissue and muscles than the use of negative pressure and movement.
The use of suction is commonplace throughout the history of the Olympic Games for maintenance, pre and post event injuries, detoxification and recovery.
Besides Cupping for injuries and recovery, Olympic Trainers use suction to draw toxins from the swimmers that have been absorbed from the pools that they are in for many hours everyday day. Dead cellular debris, poisons, stagnation and excess fluids drawn to the surface sometimes leave deposits under the skin, which, short of cutting the skin and pulling it out, is the best place for the lymphatic system to drain it away.
Cumulative Cupping treatments increase muscle endurance, circulation, lung capacity, lymphatic drainage and health maintenance during strenuous activities. Many professional athletes incorporate it into their training to enhance their overall performance, agility and ability to recover from their sports.
