We asked one of our massage therapists, Anna Marie Awai, the benefits of receiving cupping during massage.
Cupping, particularly moving cupping, has similar effects to a massage and is therefore beneficial in relieving tension, improving circulation and releasing stress. One investigation found that it was more effective at reducing pain intensity than regular care.
Relieves muscle tension
Cupping softens muscle tissue and helps to relieve muscle knots which results in looser feeling, more flexible muscles. Typically it targets muscle groups that are prone to tightness such as the hamstrings, the adductors and the back and shoulder muscles.
Improves digestion/relieves digestive disorders
Cupping is thought to improve digestion through relaxing the whole body. Stress, anxiety, and muscle tension can lead to congestion and stagnation in the digestive system.
