Dynamic Cupping as part of your Massage – What exactly is it?
Cupping is the use of hollow devices such as bamboo, glass or silicone that are applied to the body. Suction is created inside the cup either by sucking the air out with a pump, by squeezing a flexible cup or by using fire. This suction causes the skin to rise bringing blood flow to the area.
At Custom Bodies Fitness and massage we perform both static and dynamic cupping. Static cupping is when the cups (either glass, plastic or silicone) are placed and left on the body for a certain period of time. Static cupping is best for treating specific areas.
Our therapists also use silicone cups as part of the massage treatment and they perform what is called Dynamic Cupping Massage where the cups are placed on the body and moved in conjunction with traditional massage techniques. The purpose of dynamic cupping massage is to create the compression effect of traditional massage combined with the negative lifting action of the cupping.
