I want to let you know about the improvement my husband of 47 years is having after his therapist started doing cupping for him. He’s overall less achy (and grumpy), he moves easier and he is sleeping, mostly through the night with less bathroom trips and his snoring has decreased noticeable (this I appreciate a lot). Way more energy during the daytime. He’s sold on it and doesn’t try to get out of his therapy appointments. I have set up appointments for myself and our son who is a college athlete.
I am amazed at the profound effect of the Cupping treatment and how quick the results occurred. I wasn’t expecting as much of an emotional release of “crud”, but my channels were opened and negative energy released.
At my massage appointments, my therapist has been using cupping techniques that have been very beneficial to my physical and mental health. Having Fibromyalgia and muscle adhesions are painful are not helped with just hot and cold packs alone. Cupping releases my stuck muscles and allows circulation; it has ultimately helped in preventing chronic muscle pain and spasms.
I feel that without my therapists’ use of the cupping tools during my massage, the release of my painful stuck calf muscles and the deeper massage I’m getting and need would not be possible. Massage Cupping saves time and energy, and it resolves my pain quickly.
I wanted to provide feedback on the cupping technique I experienced. When I first tried it I was feeling sore, tense and stressed out and Cupping was very helpful. I enjoy it and continue the treatment in other visits. The cupping has a cleansing effect and has purged toxin out of my body. Thank you for this wonderful treatment you provide.
I have been treated with negative pressure massage for the past 3 months. This type of therapy has offered me freedom from pain that I experienced in my upper shoulders and neck areas. The relief has been significant, and I can only discern that the “knots” in my shoulders have been alleviated due to the effective cupping massage performed. I am grateful for this therapy and encourage its continued work.
Our daughter has Lupus and often does not sleep due to back spasms. Her PA referred her to a local therapist who does Cupping. After her first treatment, she felt sick for several hours but that night she slept… and slept until mid-morning – she never does this. After the second time she didn’t feel sick and showed more energy and increased appetite over the course of the next week. She has had several treatments over the last couple months and we are really seeing improvements in the quality of her life – she wants to stay on this treatment plan.
I have had the pleasure of being ‘Cupped’, by my therapist. She didn’t start using this treatment until the last few months, but when she did, I was amazed at the results! I had very tender spots on my arms, from the tops to the inner parts of my elbows that she had been working on with various techniques from rotating hot and cold compresses, deep tissue work etc., and when she started the cupping treatments, the areas softened and the pain was alleviated completely within a few treatments. She cups my back and the tension seems to float away leaving me surrounded by warmth and relaxation.
I have a 16 year old surgical scar wrapped around my right ribcage from an open chest surgery where my rib cage was separated under my armpit and around the back of my lats. The scar was dense, caused binding and a constant lack of mobility around my chest. I decided to try cupping at my PTs advise and was blown away at the difference in mobility as soon as I got off the table – what!? It did leave intense cupping marks that lasted several days. I’ve continued improving with each treatment – the scar is a lot softer now and my flexibility with twisting and stretching is almost back to normal. Overall I’m shocked how well it broke down the scar tissue and loosened up my range of motion so quickly with such sustained results.
I have Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS) and one of the treatments involve the smoothing of fascia – which is a thin sheath of fibrous tissue enclosing a muscle or other organ. Most massage treatment are painful for me. I researched and found a cupping practitioner in the next town over so tried it. Finally a treatment that doesn’t hurt so much I cannot stand being touched. The circulation in the treated areas was fantastic and it relieved the pain.
Cupping has proven its worth for me. I read a study that showed improvement in plantar fasciitis with cupping. The bottom of my foot is sensitive but surprisingly was able to take a significant amount of suction with no discomfort. The study I read had participant has plantar cupping twice a month. I may try a more frequent sessions to hopefully get faster relief and healing.
