At Applied Pressure we don't simply do cupping, we do sliding cupping. Think of it as myofascial release on steroids. This intense & effective form of bodywork breaks up congestion in the body like no other; cups attached to the body but gliding on oil pull the skin + underlying connective tissue. Powerful results follow this type of cupping: HEALING, restored range of motion, release of deep congestion, restore blood flow and lymph drainage. Important to note: cupping often leaves purple and red steaks on the area that was cupped. Although these superficial bruises don't hurt, be prepared to be "colorful" for the next few days. Make sure to let your massage therapist know if you don't want to receive cupping due to the temporary marks they often leave behind.
