Are you recovering from an injury or dealing with a chronic condition? Turning to cupping massage may help alleviate any symptoms you may be feeling. Cupping massage uses specialized cups that suction your skin into the cups to increase healing. At Therapeutic Medical Massage, one of the main offerings we provide to our clients is cupping massage. If you’ve considered cupping massage and weren’t sure about the benefits of cupping massage, we are here to explain it to you.

Decrease Pain

Are you experiencing pain? Whether your pain is from an injury or a chronic condition, you probably don’t want to experience pain on a regular basis. Cupping massages help to reduce the amount of pain you feel regardless of the cause of the pain. And, if your pain comes from an injury, cupping helps improve your range of motion and flexibility, which can help to prevent the injury in the future.

Increase Blood Flow

Cupping massage helps to naturally increase your blood flow. When your skin is suctioned inside the cup, it allows the blood in your body to circulate better. This is important for people who may have recently had surgery as it can help in healing once your doctor has approved massage. Having better blood flow and circulation can help improve blood pressure and keep the various systems in your body functioning properly.

Get Rid of Toxins

When your body has good circulation and blood flow, it does more than helping improve your blood pressure. It also helps get rid of toxins in your body. When you undergo cupping therapy or lymphatic drainage massage, both help improve your circulation and jumpstart the lymphatic system in your body. When those systems function properly, it helps to remove toxins from your body, which can help you feel better overall.

Reduces Anxiety

Are you feeling anxious? Cupping massage can help reduce your anxiety. The body responds positively to touch, so when the cups are placed and moved on your body, they help you relax. Additionally, your heart rate starts to slow down during a cupping massage, which can help in reducing anxiety symptoms. Even you choose to have a relaxation massage, your anxiety symptoms start to decrease, making massage an effective complementary therapy.

Helps Lessen Stress

When you partake in wet cupping, which is cupping combined with acupuncture that lets out a very small amount of blood, it helps reduce your stress level. During acupuncture, your body naturally produces endorphins, which are one of the hormones that helps you feel good. When you have an increase of endorphins in your body, it helps counteract any stress hormones that you may have. And when you have less stress impacting your day-to-day life, you can feel better overall.
