ACE Massage Cupping

Cupping is a unique brand of bodywork using suction to lift and release tissue. Current cupping therapies are adaptations of a ancient technique and possess the benefits of traditional use, along with many incredible new applications. This therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol, bulb or machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating movements. Cups gently pull up on or are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction reaches deep into the soft tissue, attachments and organ while having a sedating effect on the nervous system. Another benefit to Vacu therapy is to pull inflammation and toxins from the body tissues so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissue often releases quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.

One of the most amazing aspects of these techniques is the “separation “ that the vacuum produces in the tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue, which is invaluable in pre- and post- surgery treatments. It is evident that separation of fused, congested soft tissue and increase in tissue function can be a catalyst for change in many current health conditions. Medi Cupping and Massage Cupping is incredibly effective in relieving pain and helping return the body back to homeostasis.
