Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a Baguanfa / Kangzhu Biomagnetic cups on the skin. The cups are positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic drainage systemically. This process relaxes muscle and surrounding tissue, draws stagnation and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
Baguanfa / Kangzhu Biomagnetic cups rapidly facilitate the release of rigid soft tissue, loosens & lifts connective tissue, breaks up and drains stagnation while increasing blood & lymph flow to skin & muscles in ways not possible using traditional massage through muscle compression.
The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment. You will be surprised at how relaxed, warm and light you’ll feel – hours… sometimes even days afterwards.
