Massage Cupping

I first saw this massage cupping at a massage conference a couple of years ago and was very intrigued by it. I did research and decided to get certified in it and am proud to say the I am now Certified Level 2 / Massage Cupping.

I will incorporate Massage Cupping into my massage/bodywork sessions.

I offer Facial Cupping and Lymph Drainage and Full Body Contouring.

But you ask, what is this massage cupping?  (information taken from Ace Massage Cupping website)

What is ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy?

A wonderful ancient tool has found its place in the contemporary world of health care. ACE Massage Cupping™ is a modern form of vacuum therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience its subtle power.

By creating suction and vacuum pressure, ACE Massage Cupping™ is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.

ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is incredibly versatile and the basic movements can easily be customized to accomplish a wide variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This complements many health modalities ranging from spa treatments and medical massage to chiropractic, physical and occupational therapies.

ACE Massage Cupping™ is fun and result-oriented … and the treatment FEELS GREAT!

 THE FACE     

                                                                                                                                                             The benefits include increased local circulation to the skin, bringing nutrition to the surface, stimulating natural elasticity along with enhanced assimilation of ampoules, masks and serums. Vacuum therapy on the face is remarkable for relieving sinus congestion and for draining stagnant fluids to ease puffiness, while eyebrows often actually lift back up to the brow line! The muscles of the face benefit greatly from reduced tension and tightness, easing expression lines and loosening rigid muscles associated with TMJ disorders. Lines, wrinkles and scar tissue will soften with ACE Massage Cupping™, and rosaceous or congested skin can quickly clear. This is a perfect preparation and recovery protocol for any facial surgeries.

THE BODY

   ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy for body treatments has yielded amazing results when combined with a simple Aromatherapy Cocoon for weight reduction, stop smoking and more. Adding VacuTherapies™ into a body treatment not only enhances absorption of applied products, but assists in the drainage of stagnant fluids. While it is not recommended to combine ACE Massage Cupping ™ with aggressive exfoliation treatments, it is easily integrated into most bodtreatment procedures.
