Massage Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy has been used since ancient times and is a form of alternative medicine where cups are placed onto the skin creating a suction. The suction promotes healing by increasing blood flow to the area, loosening muscles, and reducing inflammation. The different cupping methods include dry, wet, fire, and vacuum cupping.


What sets Parkway Back and Foot apart is Brent Ellis; RMT uses a vacuum machine, and the therapy is called vacuum cupping, also referred to as ACE cupping or ACE Massage Cupping.


When using Cupping Therapy, we focus on fascial and muscle restrictions, scar tissue work and lymph drainage. 


The Fascia (connective tissue) surrounds your bones, organs, muscles, and nerves. Repetitive overuse of parts of your body, injury or strain, and prolonged immobility are all reasons you may be experiencing fascial and muscle pain.


Your lymphatic system determines how well your immune system works. Cupping for lymph drainage assists the body in removing excess fluids and toxins and helps the immune system work better to protect the body.

ACE Massage Cupping is an effective therapy that complements other therapies and treatments.


How Does Massage Cupping Work?

Cupping draws the inflammation out from deep in the tissues increasing blood flow to the affected area. It will promote healing by reducing inflammation. By increasing the blood supply to the muscles, toxins are released. The suction by the cups stimulates the body’s natural pain-relieving mechanisms, releasing endorphins.


Cupping therapy is safe; however, there may be temporary soreness or bruising. The skin can turn red from blood circulation coming to the surface. Immediately after the treatment, applying analgesics and essential oil blends will help.
