Cupping Therapy in Winnipeg: A Modern Application of Ancient Healing
Cupping is an ancient technique that continues to be used for its therapeutic qualities. We carry on this tradition of healing at Winnipeg’s Unity Massage and use cupping to improve a number of complaints.
Cupping therapy is done by placing a cup over the skin. We create a vacuum in the cup, drawing the skin upwards and separating the fascia’s layers. Modern cupping uses a mechanical suction device to remove air from the cup to create a vacuum.
Benefits of Cupping
This draws blood up to the level of the skin. New blood moves in below and removes stagnation. The process increases skin temperature, allows your sebaceous and sweat glands to breathe, and encourages the secretion of toxins. The client will likely experience temporary bruising from this therapy. The increased blood flow from cupping helps:
- Fascia (your connective tissue beneath the skin)
- Adhesions (internal scar tissue)
