Therapy with MediCupping™ utilizes glass or plastic cups and a machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin with various movements such as gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently lifting the cup. At times the “Cups” are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and metabolic wastes to the surface of the skin and thereby the lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Soft tissue restrictions, adhesions, and scar tissue often release quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid scarring tendencies. The MediCupping™ vacuum lifts and releases rigid soft tissue, as well as scars, adhesions, and restrictions. By clearing debris, opening drainage, and easing limited movement these incredibly effective techniques relieve pain and enable the body to promote healthier tissue. Five-minute treatments with the Medicupping™ technique is the equivalent to a 30-minute deep tissue massage.
