Cup Massage - Le Centre de Santé Renaissance Montréal

Cup Massage

Cup massage is an increasingly popular form of vacuum therapy used for treating a wide range of human diseases. Cup massage is a combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of specialized suction medical cups on the skin. Cup massage can be performed on almost all areas of human body, but is most often it is used to massage the back, chest and limbs. Facial area treatment is recommended after the paralysis of facial nerves as well as for cosmetic purposes. Hip and thigh areas may also be treated. The vacuum suction cups have a thermo-chemical and reflectory impact on the skin, hypoderm, muscles and nerves, as the underlying tissue is drawn upward, targeting biologically active zones and "meridians" of the body. The suction effect, which can range from light to heavy, increases blood and lymph circulation systematically to the localized area, relaxing muscle tissue, eliminating stasis and stagnation and drawing toxins and pathogenic factors out of the body. The 10-20 minute procedure starts and ends with classical massage techniques and is accompanied with the pleasant feeling of warmth. The therapeutic applications of cupping have been documented through several thousand years of clinical experience. The Roman practitioner Galen was known to apply cups onto patients' skin after having done series of small incisions. Arabic countries also used cups to "cure bad blood" similar to how indigenous peoples used cups to drain toxins out of snakebites and skin lesions. Modern cup massage at Centre de Santé Renaissance has been adapted for modern health-care modalities to intensify the therapeutic aspect of traditional cupping.
