Cupping therapy Dubrovnik

Your massage treatment can end with cupping therapy in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This helps with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and general well-being.

Cupping therapy Dubrovnik


What is cupping therapy?
Hollywood actors and successful sportsmen made cupping therapy trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.

During cupping, your therapist will use a rubber pump to create a vacuum inside the cup. This will create a mild suction which will be left in place for about 5-10 minutes. The therapist then removes the cup.

It is believed that the suction created by the cup encourages blood flow—and this increased circulation may promote healing and reduce pain.

The primary side effects of cupping are bruising and skin irritation. Both should heal on their own in 7-10 days.

For a full body and mind regeneration, you can combine this treatment with a Bazilian Madero TherapyDeep Tissue Massage, De-Stress Swedish Massage or Signature Massage Therapy.

What if I am pregnant?
Cupping treatment is completely safe. However, you should always tell your therapist that you are pregnant so he can adjust the therapy to your needs.
