ACE Cupping Massage - What Is It?
ACE Cupping in form of massage technique I am trained in using the vacuum pump method. Honestly, this is where I am very passionate with my work because of the many benefits it has. Cupping uses negative pressure that reaches deep into the layers of fascia. It is painless and very relaxing. But don't let that fool you, it has very deep effects.
How Cupping Is Done
There are several types of cupping techniques which include wet, dry, stagnant and dynamic cupping as well as fire cupping. These all performed differently and are used for different reasons. Click here to read about how cupping is done. Please know that I only perform DRY CUPPING with dramatic and in chronic cases, stagnant movements.
What can you expect during a cupping appointment?
Depending on the type of cupping and what you are going in for, you will have several cups placed on your body, depending on where you want the treatment. For a stagnant treatment, the cups will be left in place and for a dynamic treatment, the technician will move them around. You may feel some pinching if a knot is located. Upon the release of the skin and muscle, you should feel an immediate lack of tension and more relaxation.
Cupping has long been used in holistic and alternative medicine practices, but it has definitely gained acceptance in the Westernized world. It has been found to work wonderfully when coupled with more modern practices. With no physical trauma to the body, the benefits of this ancient practice are well worth exploring. You may find that it helps with relaxation, toxin removal, and pain relief when used regularly.

FaceLift Massage - ACE Massage Cupping™ applications for the face evolved from the discovery of wonderful MICRO-CUPS that can be used to vacuum across the skin, or mimic the pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. Vacuum therapy on the face is remarkable for relieving sinus congestion and for draining stagnant fluids to ease puffiness, while eyebrows often actually lift back up to the brow line!

Why should I request ACE Massage Cupping™?
One of the most enjoyable aspects of experiencing this therapy is the incredibly wide range of movements. Creativity provides a variety of methods, while alteration of pressure and speed produces amazingly different sensations. The edge of the cup can be used to “scoop” in a cross fiber movement. Vigorous circles feel marvelous on the hips, thighs and shoulders. Long strokes down the sides of the spine and along the ribs provide ease to rib cage expansion and breathing. Stubborn neck tension can be released in mere minutes and scar tissue softened using a “reverse friction” technique.
People often report that the experience stayed with them longer than most treatments, and the speed with which ACE Massage Cupping™ effects change in the tissue is truly amazing. When used in a treatment series, the results are cumulative. Yet even in a single treatment, a long-term physical issue may be resolved! Applications for this technique include body contouring, chronic pain relief, pre-surgery prepping and post-surgery recovery (face and body), detoxification, and increased sports performance. Conditions that have responded to ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy include colon disorders, edema, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, cellulite, nervous tension and many more!
What is the discoloration that occurs after some treatments?
There is a “marked” difference between traditional Chinese cupping therapy and ACE Massage Cupping™. The marks that are commonly left from TCM treatments are the desired result. ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy very rarely produces this discoloration, called a “cup kiss” or “doo-hickey.” If this appears during the treatment, it’s just an added bonus indicating the release of intense stagnation (body fluids and toxins) in the area. This is not a bruise and will dissipate anywhere between a few hours and a few days. It is also unlikely that it will re-occur in the same area.
Is ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy safe?
This technique is used safely on children, adults and elderly persons. The most common misuse of ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is overuse. This is an intense therapy, and its impact on the body systems is significant. In particular, the elderly, children, and persons with diabetes and those on blood thinners should be treated gently. After any ACE Massage Cupping™ treatment, it is important to avoid exposure to excessive heat or cold, and sufficient hydration is required to facilitate elimination. A complete assessment of specific conditions at the time of treatment must be taken into consideration by the practitioner.
