Granby Cupping Therapy
Massage cupping is an ancient modality that uses suction cups to create negative pressure for the release of fascia (connective tissue) and muscular tension. It also helps to remove ﬂuid and toxins from the tissue, thus allowing greater blood ﬂow to these areas, and can help loosen adhesions and scar tissue. It is very eﬀective and relaxing, and most people think it feels fantastic. My focus tends to be more with the moving cups.
Cupping Therapy Procedure
The use of cups on aﬀected areas creates a localized pressure that acts as a vacuum to draw blood to the surface and facilitate healing. Jill Suﬃn Body and Energy Works tailors treatments to achieve both therapeutic and stress relieving eﬀects to harmonize the energy pathways of the body.
Mainstream Medicine in China
According to Eastern healing philosophy, cupping therapy induces the balanced ﬂow of “Qi” energy through the body’s organs and tissues that triggers the natural release of harmful toxins. Safe and eﬀective, cupping therapy is considered a mainstream form of medicine in China and practiced at most hospitals with great success. A recent review of several scientiﬁc studies has shown cupping therapy to be eﬀective for a variety of conditions from acne to facial paralysis and especially eﬀective when combined with acupuncture treatments.
