How Cupping Works
Regular massage uses "positive pressure": applying pressure to tightness, tension and additional pressure. In physics, when you apply "pressure to pressure," one side retracts by force. When we use our bodies to release the client's body pressure, we must use a lot of strength and work. In contrast, cupping is "negative pressure" - it pulls the tissue up, allows it to relax so that the therapist can more easily work with the tissue to allow it to release, detox, and heal.
