Next time you’re in the mood for a new spa experience, consider trying massage cupping therapy, which is a twist on the ancient healing modality of cupping therapy. The way it works: cupping creates suction and negative pressure, which are used to help drain excess fluids and toxins floating around in the body. This also boosts blood circulation to slackened skin and helps stimulate your nervous system. Generally, stationary cups are used on various parts of the body in traditional acupressure methods, but now it’s also become a popular massage modality. The sensation of moving glass cups across your back is definitely a little strange at first, but the gentle pulling of your skin is also extremely soothing and works wonders on tired, achey skin. Massage cupping is still fairly new, but Spa Fusion in downtown San Francisco offers an incredible service, so consider trying it out if you get the chance.
