Benefits of Massage Cupping

Improved Energy Flow

In traditional Arabic and Chinese medicine, cupping is used to improve the energy flow throughout the body. The bruises caused by the procedure are thought to be the negative energy elements coming to the surface and exiting the body. The cups can be placed over the traditional energy collection points, which are also stimulated during acupuncture and shiatsu massage. A healthy energy flow is thought to improve both the physical and mental well-being of the client.

Pain Relief

"Massage Magazine" reports that clients who received cupping sessions found that it relieved chronic pain and helped improve range of motion to injured areas. The clients who experienced this pain relief reported that the effects lasted longer than the pain relief associated with other massage modalities.

Loosen Muscles

Fribromyalgia-symptoms.org reports that cupping is an effective way to reduce the muscle stiffness associated with the disorder. Cupping loosens the muscles and brings an influx of blood to the area and softens the underlying muscle tissues, leading to increased flexibility and a better sense of mobility.


Like other massage modalities, cupping can be incredibly relaxing. The work is usually performed in soothing setting and the therapists touch is very light. The therapist might move the cups around the body, mirroring the strokes that you would receive during a standard relaxation massage. While the goal of the session is to target different areas of the body, a cupping treatment can improve your general sense of relaxation.
Cupping Massage Techniques

Below are ten suggestions for effective massage cupping:
1.     Almost all areas of the body may be worked on, including the neck, shoulders, middle and low back, and sacrum. The stomach hips and thighs require a gentler suction.
2.     The running suction for running requires a lighter suction than that used in stationary cupping or parking. So ask the client if the pressure is uncomfortable in any way.
3.     Before using the cups in the running movement or in the friction mode, the area should have adequate oil for an easy smooth gliding cup movement.
4.     When applying the cups, the movements should be smooth with the practitioner applying a neutral or slightly upward pressure.
5.     The broad areas of the back and upper thighs and buttocks are the best surfaces for running cupping. The back can generally accommodate the larger cups, in the small part you can use different cup sizes to obtain the best results.
6.     Long strokes with the cups can help drain fluid accumulation and stimulate blood flow.
7.     Cross fiber or circular movements with a cup over smaller areas can help release stubborn knots, adhesions and other types of rigid tissue and cellulite.
8.     When the cupping is performed the blood is brought close to the surface and any essential oil formulas, whether for cellulite, fibromyalgia or body wraps the treatment is much more effective since the blood retreating draws the essential oils or mud wrap formula along with it.
9.     Cupping along the ribs can increase ribcage expansion and benefit deep breathing. This can benefit those with asthma or emphasema.
10.     Vigorous circling movements with the cups on the gluteus maximus (your bottom) can help ease certain types of sciatica (along with breaking up adhesions and cellulite) in the area.
11.     Stationary cupping on the Lung Back Shu points can assist with the expansion of the chest and help relieve chest congestion, coughing and asthma.
12.     The best time for massage cupping session between 3 to 15 minutes, you must watch closely to determine the circulatory reaction and adjust the suction as needed. It is a good idea to start with a medium to light pressure and increase slowly.
