Let’s talk about cups!
Cupping therapy is a form of ancient, alternative, medicine that originated in China. Cups, of many different sizes and materials depending on the therapist’s preference, are placed on the skin creating suction, with the intention of facilitating healing through blood flow.
Cupping has been said to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, decrease pain and muscle tension, promote cellular repair, and break-up adhered fascia while supporting healthy regrowth.
The discoloration marks left on the skin after cupping can range from a light reddish color, to dark red or purple. These are nothing to be weary of, as they are totally normal after a cupping session! They may be a little tender after treatment, or you may not notice them at all. The severity and amount of time they last is dependent on skin type, physical activity level, hydration, and amount of toxins released during the session. The discoloration may be visible for up to a week, though most disappear within 3-5 days.
At Iolite Therapeutics, we use silicone cups, with your preference of oil, to create the suction. And even more, we use an integrative approach, meaning cupping does not have to be something of its own. We can add cupping therapy to any type of session, making your massage exactly what you want!!
