The cupping therapy practiced at the Massotrp Clinic is a contemporary adaptation of the traditional technique. It is done with medical grade hypoallergenic silicone suction cups and not glass. They are used in physiotherapy with a progression of care or in the anti-cellulite program.
The suction cup creates a suction that produces an influx of fluids, metabolic waste and tissue stretching at the surface. Once removed, immediate tissue relaxation and improved fluid flow follow. Thus the elimination of toxins is accelerated and the oxygenation of tissues is increased. The tissues are relaxed, detoxified and nourished, providing better mobility and flexibility.
Suction cup therapy therefore has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, circulatory, detoxifying, relaxing and energizing properties. This technique is therefore indicated for tissue, muscle and joint pain (capsulitis, tendonitis, sprain, osteoarthritis…), scars, oedema, inflammation, cellulitis and wrinkles; but also for respiratory problems (asthma, bronchitis, allergies…), digestive problems (constipation, gastritis…), hyperactivity and stress.
Suction cup therapy is contraindicated in cases of fever, skin problems (eczema, psoriasis, fragile, sensitive skin…), major circulatory and blood problems (hemophilia, major varicose veins, coagulation…), major heart problems and blood pressure, cancers and tumours, pregnant or nursing women, the elderly and children
