Austin Cupping Therapy
Why Cupping Therapy?
Massage cupping or vacuum therapy is the use of glass, plastic, bamboo, or silicone cups to hold a vacuum on the surface of the skin. This vacuum draws body fluids like blood and lymph to just below the surface of the skin.
The effects to the body are pain relief, better circulation and increased range of motion in the area of treatment.
Mechanical advantage and pain relief are all the marks of an excellent massage tool.

Helps with Pain Relief
The vacuum of the cups also provides a unique interface with the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. With massage cupping, Shane can move these tissues in directions that would be very difficult with only his hands. Increased circulation to the area of treatment, mechanical advantage and pain relief are all the marks of an excellent massage tool, and that is the reason Shane decided to add this treatment to the offered modalities.
It is not our intention to use massage cupping in the same way as a Doctor of Chinese Medicine. There are similarities, but our focus is more utilitarian. Massage cupping can be added as an enhancement to your massage or as a 15 minute stand alone treatment. Our healing strategy always includes bringing balance back to the body so that you leave here functioning optimally in order to live your best life.
