Earth Breath Yoga is the perfect haven for relaxation and rejuvenation. Our massage studio offers a range of services such as cupping therapy which is a type of therapeutic massage that uses suction to encourage blood flow, reduce inflammation and promote healing.
At Earth Breath Yoga we specialize in cupping therapy, an ancient Chinese practice of using suction cups to create a gentle pressure over different parts of the body to improve circulation. Our certified therapists use a combination of stretching, massage and cupping techniques to reduce pain and bring relief to tight and tired muscles.
Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese medical technique that can provide many benefits, such as improved blood circulation, reduced muscle tension, and relief of pain. It can also help to reduce inflammation, clear toxins from the body, and promote relaxation. Additional benefits include improving overall wellbeing and increasing energy.
Cupping therapy in a way can be viewed as a form of myofascial release. It helps to release the fascia, also known as the connective tissue, that surrounds each individual muscle fiber as well as each muscle group as a whole. During this process, we will use oil to move the cups around, and may also do what's referred to as placement therapy. When we do placement cupping, we will leave the cups in one spot on your body for up to 10 minutes. During that process, you may begin to feel an itching sensation. If at any time the suction feels to great, please inform your therapist so they can adjust or remove the cup as necessary.
