Massage Cupping (or Fire Cupping)
As a day spa owner here in Salt Lake City, I'm always learning and trying new healing treatments. I'm proud to announce the addition of a favorite, Fire Cupping and Massage Cupping!
ACE Massage Cupping™ is used to lift and stretch soft tissue (muscle, fascia/connective, attachments), separate fused tissue layers (i.e. ITB and TFL), release and soften scar tissue, open body drainage systems to aid in decongesting “solid bloat” and increase hydration of tissues.
Therapeutic Effects of ACE Massage Cupping™:
Release Deep Tissue Issues
Stimulate Blood Flow
Sedate the Nervous System
Conditions that respond to ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy:
Migraine, Tension Heachaches, & Sinusitis
Sluggish Colon & IBS
Athletic Stress & Injury
Bursitis, Tendonitis, & Plantar Fasciitis
Scars & Adhesions
This type of cupping is done by a Licensed Massage Therapist with training and a Cupping Certification, and ranges from gentle to moderately aggressive, which can leave temporary discoloration on the skin. These marks look like a bruise but do not have the tissue trauma that a bruise has, and they do not hurt. Fading takes anywhere from a few hours to a couple of weeks.
*Please note that extremely aggressive cupping or wet cupping is done by acupuncturists or Chinese doctors only, and can cause blistering and bleeding. This type is NOT performed here, and your safe, relaxing spa treatment is our number one priority!
