Therapeutic Medical Massage

When it comes to different medical massages that Aruna offers, you may have heard about them with different names. For instance, many people have heard of cupping therapy, one of the services that Aruna offers. But other times, people hear about it as suction cup therapy. The two terms mean the same thing. If you’ve been wondering about suction cup therapy or cupping therapy, now is the time to learn about it.

What is Suction Cup Therapy?

Suction cup therapy, also known as cupping therapy, has its roots in ancient Chinese and Middle Eastern culture. During a session, Aruna will place special cups on different areas of your skin depending on where you feel pain. The cups are made of plastic, silicone, or glass. Additionally, they may also have magnets on them.

During your session, you’ll have cups placed on your skin and the cups suction your skin into them. This helps to increase blood flow to the area where the cups are placed. With the increase in blood flow, your body’s circulation system improves, which can help reduce pain.

Benefits of Suction Cup Therapy

Suction cup therapy offers many benefits for people who participate in the sessions. First off, suction cup therapy offers a wide range of ways to relieve pain. For people with back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, headaches or migraines, and shoulder pain, cupping therapy helps to minimize pain following a treatment session.

Suction cup therapy helps with:

  • Rejuvenating your face in a natural setting
  • Managing chronic pain
  • Minimizing muscle spasms
  • Reducing stiffness and swelling of the joints

Because suction cup therapy helps with many different areas of the body, it’s effective at managing and addressing pain you may feel.

Does Suction Cup Therapy Promote Relaxation?

Suction cup therapy helps with alleviating pain you feel while also promoting relaxation. As your skin is suctioned into the cups with the negative pressure, it helps to activate your parasympathetic nervous system in your body, which helps aid in relaxation. Increasing your relaxation can help with reducing pain levels, so suction cupping therapy is a great two-in-one type of medical massage that can help you feel better and relax.

How Many Times Do I Need Suction Cup Therapy?

Like many of the medical massages offered at Therapeutic Medical Massage, the number of suction cup therapy sessions varies from person to person. Many times, people can feel the effects of their session for days or weeks. Other times, some people come in on a more regular basis. If you don’t know how many sessions of suction cupping therapy you should take part in, talk with Aruna following your appointment.

All in all, suction cup therapy is another way to say you want to try cupping therapy massage. If you’ve dealt with back pain, sciatica pain, headaches or migraines, suction cup therapy is a great way to help feel better and alleviate your pain. Since 2008, Aruna has helped hundreds of people throughout Mason, West Chester, Liberty Township, and more areas in the Cincinnati area manage their pain.

Therapeutic Medical Massage offers a wide variety of massages. We provide massages for relaxation, sports, and pregnancy as well as pain relief. Further, we specialize in many types of medical massages. One massage people find beneficial is a lymphatic drainage massage. The following article explains everything you need to know about getting a lymphatic drainage massage.

What is a Lymphatic Massage?

A lymphatic massage uses very light pressure, allowing careful stretching and twisting hand movements to move fluids collected under the skin to stimulate lymph vessels. A massage specialist uses a very soothing technique which clients of all ages enjoy. This type of massage reduces swelling, bruising, lymphatic congestion, and lowers blood pressure and anxiety.

What Benefits Does a Lymphatic Massage Provide?

Our lymph system houses the immune system and cleanses the body. When the lymph system is congested, wastes and fluids accumulate in your body’s tissues. Sometimes, the body needs help removing this toxic buildup. One great solution, lymphatic massage, drains the toxins from your body manually. This massage has many benefits. Further, it increases fluid circulation in your body and removes toxins. Lymphatic massage stimulates the immune system, helping the body relax and regenerate. Lastly, this type of massage can also treat scars, sinusitis, post-cosmetic surgery, and whiplash.

Swedish Massage

When people think of massage, they typically think of a Swedish massage. This is the type of massage most commonly offered in spas, but it is also one that Aruna performs. A Swedish massage uses gentle strokes and glides across your body to help you relax. Swedish massages are known to decrease cortisol, which is commonly known as the stress hormone, and ultimately helps you relax and feel more comfortable. Additionally, a Swedish massage can help you relax by increasing your body’s circulation and allowing for new blood to reach areas of your body.

Bamboo Fusion Massage

If you are looking to take your relaxation massage to the next level, a bamboo fusion massage is a great way to go. This massage uses heated bamboo to enhance your massage by providing an extra way to loosen your muscles and help you relax. Additionally, using bamboo during a massage can build a bridge between a relaxation massage and a medical massage, as the bamboo can play a useful role in a deep tissue massage.

Cupping Therapy Sessions

Similarly to the bamboo fusion massage, a session of cupping therapy can be both relaxing and help you feel better overall. Cupping therapy uses different types of cups to suction your skin and create negative pressure. Many things happen when negative pressure is created, including an increase in blood flow, a reduction of blood pressure, and you get to ultimately relax. If back pain, shoulder pain, or migraines and headaches keep you from relaxing, a cupping therapy session can help.

Sound Healing Therapy

Whether you have a medical massage or a relaxation massage, one thing remains the same: the way the session starts. When you visit Therapeutic Medical Massage for a massage, it will always start with a conversation between you and Aruna about how you currently feel. From there, as your massage starts, you’ll have a mini sound healing session. Sound healing helps re-set the chakras and frequencies in your body. Through this, you begin to feel less stressed. If you enjoyed the mini sound healing session, you can book longer sessions for yourself or for yourself and a few other people.

Since 2008, Aruna has helped hundreds of people throughout the Greater Cincinnati area feel less stress and better overall. Looking for ways to reduce stress?
