Cupping Therapy at Massage Hope
Cupping is used on areas of tight muscle tissue to help break up adhesions and fascia, bringing blood to the concentrated spot. When muscle tissue is tight, blood does not travel through the fibers at its normal rate. Metabolic waste such as calcium and lactic acid can build up in the muscle causing it to become inflamed, irritated and hard. Massage and cupping help to flush this waste out, bring new blood to the muscle, which helps bring nutrients and oxygen promoting healing.
Massage Hope uses cupping during massage per requested or if the massage therapist feels it may help assist them in their treatment. Currently we do not charge for cupping. Please call us with any questions 703-858-2323
