What is Cupping Massage – A Quick Guide

Cupping Therapy or Cupping Massage is one of the most ancient healing modalities that dates back to 1,500 B.C. A remedy that is known to bring along benefits such as alleviating pain and aiding post-training recovery in athletes, treating mental disorders such as stress and anxiety, and minimising the appearance of varicose veins and cellulite especially in women, just to name a few.

What is a Cupping Massage?

Cupping Massage is a form of bodywork therapy that uses specialised cups to create localised suction. With the skin lifted, the fascia and muscles are driven apart, eventually creating more space for tissue mobility. This effect assists in disintegrating minor adhesions and triggers the body’s healing process by circulating lymphatic fluid and stimulating blood flow in the targeted area.

Benefits of a Cupping Massage

  1. Improved Athletic Performance
    Be it on the field or during a training session, athletes’ bodies are under constant pressure. Moreover, a speedy recovery post-game becomes mandatory for subsequently optimal performance. Cupping Massage zeroes in on the target tissue to improve interlayer gliding, thereby enhancing tissue mobility. As a result, Cupping aids in rapid muscle recovery and improves range of motion. Sometimes lasting for merely 5 minutes, Cupping might serve as one of the fastest supplementary remedies for athletes.
  2. Relief from Stress and Anxiety
    In contrast to most conventional massages, Cupping employs a unique negative pressure approach. Instead of using firm and vigorous movements (added positive pressure), cupping massage techniques bring a sense of calm due to their relaxing effect on all sensory receptors. For instance, sliding the cups ever so tenderly over the rib cage creates expansion and evokes a more profound sense of breath, making it a revitalising, stress-relieving treatment.

    Furthermore, Cupping Therapy has also been known to treat the following conditions safely:

    • Respiratory diseases such as pneumonia and bronchitis
    • Skin issues such as eczema and acne
    • Blood disorders such as anaemia and haemophilia
    • Fertility and gynaecological disorders
    • High Blood Pressure
    • Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia
    • Migraines and Tension Headaches

A Dry Cupping Massage at Yinyang can be a truly therapeutic and invigorating experience. Know for yourself by making an appointment at any of our four Massage Centres in Dubai, located at Al Safa, JBR, Village Mall and Beach Centre.


How Cupping can help Athletes

Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques have long been classified as ‘alternative’ or ‘complementary’ by practitioners of Western medicine, who like to cite studies that are unable to conclusively prove whether or not cupping has any medical benefits.

Cupping is a treatment that involves creating suction to promote blood flow to a particular area in the body. The increased blood flow means increased oxygen supply to the muscle group, which involves creating a small area of low air pressure next to the skin. However, there is variety in the tools used, the method of creating the low pressure, and the procedures followed during the treatment.

In practice, cups are normally used only on softer tissue that can form a good seal along the edge of the cup. One or more cups may be used depending on the size of the area being treated. They may be used by themselves or placed over an acupuncture needle. The skin may be lubricated using oil, allowing the cup to move across the skin slowly.

Cupping has long been part of the recovery process employed by top-level athletes around the world, such as Chinese swimmer Wang Qun, who had cupping sessions before competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It truly rose to prominence, however, during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, when several high profile American athletes, including majority of the US Men’s Gymnastics team (that won four golds medals, six silver medals and two bronze medals) and Michael Phelps (who won five gold medals and one silver medal at Rio 2016) were pictured with cupping marks on their body. While most received regular cupping treatments, some (such as Phelps) are said to have preferred fire cupping.

From there, cupping seems to have exploded as a phenomena, with high profile footballers like Karim Benzema and Neymar adding it to their recovery routines at various points. While Benzema reportedly uses it on a regular basis to help speed up post-training muscle recovery, Neymar reportedly experimented with it it in order to return to action faster than expected while he was playing for FC Barcelona in 2017.

Cupping is also known to provide pain relief, which is why it has been assimilated into the routines of several MMA fighters, such as Connor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, as well as NFL players. James Harrison was one of the most vocal proponents of cupping therapy and accupuncture in the NFL, having used it since an early age. He credited these techniques as a reason for his durability, playing for 15 years in a league known for its brutality, where the average NFL player only has a career of 3.3 years. Anthony Joshua, the heavyweight boxer, has also used cupping on a very regular basis and often posts pictures of the therapy he receives to social media.

After the 2016 Olympics, cupping became much more popular in the NBA as well, with Stephen Curry employing the technique during his rehabilitation from a shoulder injury. Nikola Vucevic, the center for the Orlando Magic, has also used it after he injured his shoulder, and could frequently be spotted playing with cupping marks on his arm.

While there still may not be any scientific studies that can conclusively ascertain the effects cupping has on the human body, it is hard to argue with the sheer volume of professional athletes who now swear by the practice.

Cupping therapy can treat a variety of conditions safely, including:

— Respiratory infections

— Blood disorders, such as anemia and hemophilia

— Joint pain caused by arthritis and fibromyalgia

— Migraine and tension headaches

— Muscle aches and stiffness

— Fertility and gynaecological disorders

— Skin problems such as herpes, eczema and acne

— High blood pressure (hypertension)

— Mental disorders, anxiety and depression

— Food allergies and asthma

— Varicose veins and cellulite
