At Fíka, we use cupping to improve energy flow, relieve muscle tension, and promote cellular repair. Cupping works by placing pressurized or heated cups on the skin, which creates a vacuum. This vacuum increases blood flow to the areas of placement and promotes your body’s natural healing processes.
The cups are left in place for a measured amount of time, dependent on the type of treatment being provided. Before the cups are removed, they may be used to stretch and massage the area of treatment for added benefits.
If you’re already seeking other forms of relief from chronic pain and other ailments, cupping can be used to support and enhance these treatment methods. Best of all, you’ll enjoy taking some extra time in the week to relax your body during your session.
The cups may be placed at a number of treatment sites, determined by the desired results and the type of relief patients are seeking. For example, cupping for headaches, musculoskeletal pain, and migraines often involves cup placement on the neck and shoulders.
Areas with greater amounts of muscle tissue, such as the chest, back, stomach, and buttocks are ideal for the most effective cup placement.
