Watch Massage Cupping with Anita Shannon

At Massage & Healthy Living, Cary, NC we are always learning new techniques to make not only our therapist better but to make our clients better!  We are excited about this ancient technique, Cupping Therapy.  If you haven’t seen our previous (funny) video about cupping, it’s a must watch.  Below, Anita demonstrates another way of performing this technique.  We hope you enjoy it!
This can be done at our studio and can be blended INTO your 60/90 min massage OR, you may wish to just do a 15 – 30 minute massage and focus on specific areas like, back and shoulders, or legs and feet for example.

Current vacuum therapies are a modern use of an ancient tool 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 techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, and are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissues often release quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.
