Courses / Treatment of the Fascia with Vacuum Therapy - COPPETTAGE / CUPPING

Cupping

Cupping is a method through which, and with the use of Cups (in our courses they are made of silicone), a local suction is created on the skin.

Cupping is a therapeutic practice that originates from Chinese Medicine and is part of external therapeutic treatments (such as Therapeutic Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, etc.). Through pressure suction, the skin is sucked inside the cup creating a vacuum in the cup placed on the skin in the desired area. The vacuum can be translated dynamically to the area to be treated or placed statically on a single point, or the combination of the two static / dynamic manoeuvres can be used.

The technique determines: 

  • a homogeneous vertical detachment of the tissue on a well-defined spot without affecting the surrounding tissues; 
  • an increase in blood flow to the treated area; 
  • a mechanical vasodilation at the arterial, venous and lymphatic level; 
  • it improves the elimination of toxins and tissue impurities; 
  • it improves tissue consolidation; 
  • it reduces inflammation.
