Cupping Therapies

Cupping – Where did it originate from?
Cupping originated in China, where it is considered traditional medicine and is used to treat everything from muscle pain and coughs to shingles. Specialized glass cups are applied to specific areas on the body, and then either heat or a pump is used to create intense suction to the skin.


Is Cupping painful?

Cupping will tend to leave a circular bruise which should last about 3 to 7 days. Cupping is not painful. It feels like a really good deep tissue massage, unwinding deep knots in your musculature. Cupping can also be used to supplement any detoxification program.


What are the health benefits of cupping?

Most people find cupping to be a wonderfully relaxing, comfortable, and effective treatment. Like massage, cupping can also be used to relieve stress, tension, and lower blood pressure. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure) Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines and rheumatism

Dry Cupping Therapy


I experienced general aches and pains along with a tense neck, shoulders and arms during my second trimester of pregnancy Visited Janet for my first pregnancy massage.
The attention to detail, care and confidence shown made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Janet really can read the body and focuses on the areas needed without having to direct her, her technique and attention to her work is exemplary.
Janet’s manner and calming presence along with amazing technique has made me feel so much lighter and calmer within myself – highly recommend her for pregnancy massages.
