Deep Tissue Massage with Cupping Works Out The Knots

In today’s high stress culture, most people have a sedentary lifestyle sitting slouched over their computer or smartphone looking like a human question mark- their heads jutting forward, shoulders rounded and getting close to their ears and their stomachs getting close to their knees.

Does this sound familiar?

Now you’re probably familiar with the therapeutic benefits of Deep Tissue Massage and how it loosens knots, increases range of motion, reduces pain and inflammation.  When I add Cupping to my massage session, I’m able to get even faster results with less pain.

Cupping along the spine stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to producing a relaxing and sedating effect on the recipient, and it’s not uncommon for them to fall asleep.

When treating clients who suffer with low back pain, the silicone cups allow me to go deep without causing my clients pain.

The powerful suction of Cupping can lift and release adhesions deep in the rotator cuff muscles, and even help thaw a frozen shoulder making it more mobile.

Cupping has been around for thousands of years and involves suction, also known as negative pressure.

The silicone cups literally become an extension of my hands, allowing me to decompress and create negative pressure, which seamlessly lifts and releases muscle adhesions versus performing the classic compression of massage.

Achieving these profound their therapeutic results is simply not possible with hands alone.  It’s said that 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of a deep tissue massage. I’m able to achieve immediate results bringing a pain scale of 9 to a 1 or 2 in a matter of minutes.

 Toxic feelings of anxiety and stress are literally lifted up and away.

I was lucky that Morgan had a free spot this week because the stiff neck I’d had for a while suddenly turned into an excruciating neck/back/shoulder problem. Morgan got right to work, giving a very deep and sometimes painful massage. He also gave me some tips for exercises. Last night and this morning I still felt stiff and achy, but now, 24 hours later, my shoulders are significantly looser and I can turn my head! I look forward to the first good night of sleep in a week!
