What is ACE Massage Cupping™ Therapy?
A wonderful ancient tool has found its place in the contemporary world of health care. ACE Massage Cupping™ is a modern form of vacuum therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience its subtle power.
By creating suction and vacuum pressure, ACE Massage Cupping™ is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy is incredibly versatile and the basic movements can easily be customized to accomplish a wide variety of techniques, from lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. This complements many health modalities ranging from spa treatments and medical massage to chiropractic, physical and occupational therapies.
Benefits of ACE Massage Cupping™ Therapy
With a rich history of medical applications, how does ACE Massage Cupping™ fit into current medical and wellness practices and facilities?
Vacuum therapy is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out from deep in the tissues to be released. The skin can turn red with strong movements, indicating that circulation has been brought to the surface. Application of liniments, analgesics, plant hydrosols and essential oil blends immediately after treatment will enable absorption of the product deep into the tissue.
Increased local blood supply to the muscles and skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away via the lymph. Conditions of chronic and acute pain can be relieved with minimal discomfort and tense muscles softened quickly and easily. ACE Massage Cupping™ is wonderfully effective to release restrictions in fascia and scar tissue, such as plantar fasciitis.
Larger cups are used for the broad areas of the back, and a strong vacuum will mimic the rolling action of deep tissue massage without the discomfort. The movement may be long and draining or circular and stimulating for stubborn knots and areas of rigid tissue. ACE Massage Cupping™ techniques can be used to mimic other massage modalities without stress on the hands of the therapist.
One of the most beneficial applications of vacuum therapy is for preparation and recovery from surgical procedures. Physicians are amazed at the speed and total recovery that their patients exhibit when ACE Vacutherapies™ are used to complement their surgical work. Patients with extreme burns and deep abdominal scars such as C-sections can now benefit from a comfortable therapy to loosen and soften rigid tissue, no matter how old the scar is.
The action on the nervous system is sedating and people often fall into a deep state of relaxation. On a deeper therapeutic level, this nervous system sedation is beneficial for those with high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, chronic headaches, fibromyalgia and neuralgia. The sensation is truly beyond description! People have often reported a deep warmth and tingling sensation long after the treatment has ended.
Another effective application of ACE Massage Cupping™ is in the treatment of cellulite. A very light suction provides drainage, while heavier application can be used to stimulate circulation, liquefy deposits of Solid Bloat and loosen adhesions or “dimpling.” The thighs and hip region should be treated with vacuum therapy prior to any wrapping procedure to enhance the absorption of product. Successful and enjoyable body sculpting and contouring is possible, with lasting results and many health benefits!
Treatments using ACE Massage Cupping™ include a revolutionary face lifting and drainage treatment and magnetic micro-cup treatments for the body and magnetic reflexology for the feet and hands. The magnetic equipment is showing great results in the treatment of scoliosis, old and new injury sites, along with neuropathy and pain common with diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, edema, sciatica and more
