Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is a wonderful therapy with many benefits. Ay Tony Schwartz Bodywork I use two different styles of cups: a gliding cup (Medi-Cupping) and a still cupping (Cupping).

 MEDI-CUPPING THERAPY (also called D.M.T.)

Cupping therapy has been around in one form or another since Egyptian times as a method of detoxification and tissue healing. Using gentle suction on several areas of the body it can help with a range of health ailments. With modern technology vacuum cupping therapy is just the latest version of this treatment. Unlike the traditional method of cupping therapy MediCupping therapy uses only two applicator cups at a time. Come try the best cupping experience in Minneapolis!

  • Detox your shallow and deep tissues including stagnate blood and lymphatic fluid.

  • Allows release of shallow and deep scare tissue including around joints reducing pain and increasing range of motion.

  • Removes painful sharp aches and dull pains caused by soft tissue knots and muscles that are stuck together (see above videos).

  • Releases pressure on I.T. bands for those active athletes without the pain of using a foam roller.

  • A relaxing alternative to deep tissue massage without pain associated with the increased pressure.

  • Release toxins and chemicals from lung tissue due to cigarette smoking / smoke inhalation (similar to a nebulizer).

  • This therapy (depending on your need) can work up to 6X faster then manual massage therapy.

  • and much more!

Who should not have this therapy?

Out of a abundance of caution I do not provide this treatment for those who are:

  • pregnant (in some areas)

  • using blood thinners

  • areas around implanted medical devices or tubes

  • prone to thin skin

  • undergoing cancer treatments (unless cleared by a doctor in writing)

Doesn't "Cupping" leave marks?

Depending on the needed amount of suction some discoloration may happen. For many people this discoloration will return to normal in a few days. In rare cases some marks may last several months when the tissue disfunction is extreme.

Unlike Vacuum Cupping Therapy this treatment, cups are kept in one place for deeper penetration of the tissues.

Doesn't "Cupping" leave marks?

Yes, the treatment works on the idea of light suction which will draw blood and toxins closer to the surface of the skin. This will cause discoloration and it can last anytime from a few minutes to several weeks.
