A popular alternative medicine treatment we offer here at Innersoul Massage in Northfield, IL, is called cupping therapy. This ancient natural healing technique requires that the massage therapist applies small heated cups that will stimulate the muscles and increases blood flow.
The small heated cups provide a suction effect on the skin, which gently pulls up the soft tissue to encourage blood flow. The benefits of an increase in blood flow is a more rapid healing process, gentle detoxification and stress relief. This is an inverse type of massage because instead of applying pressure to the skin, the skin and tissue is pulled upward, releasing the tension. This method has provided many of our clients with the ultimate relaxation and has proven to have many benefits.
