Here at Zen Space Wellness and Cupping Studio we have the most experienced cupping practitioners in the state! Additionally our practitioners are trained in house, to ensure a cohesive experience.
We refer to cupping as a reverse deep tissue/massage with lymphatic drainage effects! We use a suction device to expand the tissue and create space for circulation and blood flow. It creates a controlled inflammatory response to specific areas that need special attention. Cupping can help with everything from muscle tension to sports injury, cold/flu, immune boosting, detoxification of tissue, migraines, etc. Basically anything related to the circulatory system, musculoskeletal system and immune system!
What exactly does cupping do? I am glad you asked. Cupping helps to increase circulation, and lubricate the tissue. It helps to break up scar tissue and adhesions that form in the muscle fibers and cause tension, thus relieving pain and tension. It helps to move the lymph and stimulate the immune system. And it detoxifies the tissue by pulling lactic acid and toxins out of the muscle layer and redistributing it into the blood stream so that it can be eliminated from the body through your natural detox pathways of your liver and kidneys.
We also offer facial cupping sessions. Facial cupping is a different from cupping on the body, as it is much gentler and should not leave marks. This treatment is great for relaxation, decreasing puffiness of the face, boosting collagen production, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Below is a break down of the different forms of cupping that we offer:
- Fire Cupping
- Korean Suction Cupping
