Soft Cupping Massage
Soft cups are glided across the skin for a deeper relaxing massage. This promotes deep muscle pain relief, increases motion and improves lymphatic drainage.
The aim of cupping is to create a vacuum; this encourages blood flow to the surrounding area causing a small inflammatory effect but at a much quicker rate than the traditional massage techniques. This inflammatory response activates chemical mediators triggering the body’s natural healing response.
Ultrasound images have revealed that the effect can reach 4” below the skins surface. Soft silicone cups are used to enable a gliding effect and creating a negative pressure which makes it suitable for those who cant tolerate the positive pressures of a traditional massage. The cups are used to draw toxins to the body’s surface where it can be safely removed by the lymphatic system.
Cupping can be used as part of a lymphatic drainage treatment which requires the lightest of touch , facial rejuvenating treatments, cellulite reduction, scar softening or general massage including deep tissue. Pressures can be adjusted to suit the clients needs.
- Soft Cupping explores the science of tissue gliding, traction and decompression and has many benefits. These include:
- Improved Circulation
- Muscular & skeletal problems – increasing range of movement, loosening adhesions & providing pain relief
- Improves skin texture & tone by gently stretching the fibroblast cells. It also encourages the increase of natural collagen & elastin.
- Helps soften old scar tissue
- Relieves tension and fantastic for relieving Headaches & Migraines
- Balances the nervous system by working the meridians and encourages the free flow of Qi.
- Helps with metabolism & detox
- Gentle enough to use on fibromyalgia patients who find positive pressure too painful.
- Opens chest & lungs as works directly on the intercostal muscles so great for congestion or asthma.
- Facial cups help drain sinuses effectively

is a modified version of the ancient Eastern style Cupping, specifically targeting the musculoskeletal system. This type of soft tissue therapy involves the application of decompressed cups on the skin, creating a vacuum effect that lifts up underlying tissues such as the fascia, muscles, blood and other fluid close to the surface of the skin. Cups are generally left in place for ten minutes, although this can vary. The skin will normally redden due to congestion of blood flow and some circular bruising is to be expected and may stay visible for up to 2-8 days.
