Cupping is a traditional practice using plastic suction cups on the skin, which rids the body of toxins through the skin and muscles, leaving you feeling relaxed, refreshed and energised.
A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin by means of suction. This draws up the underlying tissues, massaging them and helping to rid toxins.
Cupping has been found to affect the bodies muscle tissue to a depth of up to four inches, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping can also aid blood flow and reduce inflammation while helping to improve the overall relaxation and well-being of the individual. At Lelux Thai Massage, we’re proud to offer traditional cupping to our clients in Melbourne, helping people step away from their busy schedules and focusing on the overall wellbeing of their body, mind and spirit.
