Cupping is a technique where silicone cups are suctioned onto oiled skin. The benefits include pain relief, increase circulation, and muscle tension release. Great for those hard to massage places such as the neck and spine and to provide a deeper massage.
Half of the massage will be the traditional Thai massage, where you are fully clothed. Then you privately undress and drape in sheets for the second half. A fragrant free oil is massaged into the skin followed by the cups. The cups may be moved to different areas of the body for a deep massage effect.
Red marks on the skin is very normal after cupping and they should not hurt. Marks disappear after a week or two. Be sure to eat a light meal or snack and hour before the treatment and drink plenty of water after your treatment.
