Ba Guan, or cupping massage, is another traditional Chinese medicine used to promote healing and relieve pain. This massage stimulates blood flow and promotes the healing of damaged tissues.
At Moon’s Massage Spa, we involve the application of glass, plastic, or silicone cups to the skin, creating a vacuum to draw the skin and underlying tissue upward.
The cupping massage can also treat sports injuries, as it can help reduce swelling and speed up the healing process. Some other benefits include reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks.
Cupping therapy, or Ba Guan, is an ancient alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This type of deep-tissue massage helps relieve inflammation and stimulates blood flow, relaxation, and overall well-being.
Cupping can cause side effects such as persistent skin discoloration, scars, burns, and infections and may worsen eczema or psoriasis. But there aren’t any severe side effects.
