Massage with heated suction cups
The technique of glass suction cup massage is an ancient form of traditional therapy that uses suction cups and suction force to stimulate the “Qi” or the flow of inner energy, directing them to specific areas of the body. Traditional Chinese medicine regards an optimal level of “Qi” as the secret of balance and tranquility in the body, thus preventing the appearance of various internal diseases or pains.
Also known as Cupping Therapy, this is the preferred technique of athletes, people suffering from fatigue, contractures and chronic pain, helping the body to recover after exertion and pain.
Among the main conditions that can be effectively treated with massage with glass suction cups, are:
- stiff, tense or contracted neck
- upper back pain
- lower back pain
- chronic pain in the hands and feet
- muscle aches
- muscle tension
- muscle ruptures
- chronic fatigue
In addition to physical pain, heated suction cup therapy can be useful in treating fevers, colds and cramps.
