Acclaimed by health care professionals around the world, VacuTherapies™ are used to stimulate arterial and venous blood flow along with lymphatic circulation. The vacuum lifts and releases rigid soft tissue, as well as scars, adhesions and restrictions. By clearing

debris, creating drainage, and easing limited movement, these incredibly effective techniques relieve pain and enable the body’s return to homeostasis to promote healthier tissue.

What is the Difference of Massage Cupping and MediCupping?

Massage Cupping-Massage cupping bodywork is based on the common practice of Chinese cupping therapy, and the incredible results that this simple treatment produces have truly impressed those who experience it’s subtle power. By creating suction and negative pressure Massage Cupping therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.

MediCupping -Using MC-600 MediCupping™ Machine. This therapy utilizes a machine with glass or plastic cups to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, or are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction reaches deep into the soft tissue, attachments and organs and also has a sedating effect on the nervous system. Another benefit is to pull inflammation and toxins from the body tissues so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissue often releases quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.

MediCupping differentiates itself from Massage Cupping and other cupping therapies through:

1.) The ability of the machine to control the vacuum and the release of tissue. This unique feature produces a “fine-tuning” of the technique that produces a substantial increase in results. Client and practitioner share the excitement of rapid, measurable progress and shifts in condition.

2.) The equipment performs the techniques while you concentrate on the movements. No more distraction of the gun or pump. The medical level model is so versatile that a technician can be easily trained to program and perform prescribed treatment protocols.

3.) MediCupping equipment has a advantage over manual vacuum equipment. Results are easy to document through regulation of equipment settings and successful results are achieved due to the consistency of application. The equipment is fun to use, versatile, and provides a valuable tool for supporting physicians and patients through medical and surgical procedures.

To effectively add Medicupping therapy to you toolbox, it is essential to have thorough training and experience. Those who are Certified Massage Cupping Practitioners and working with manual cupping sets will integrate the mechanized equipment into their practice with ease, and novices quickly become proficient with proper training. A great way to integrate vacuum therapies into your service menu is to start with the manual equipment to build your skills and client acclaim, then graduate to the machine

Therapists who have explored the use of vacuum therapies in bodywork have found that the addition of suction and lifting to other massage techniques has produced radical changes for clients and for themselves. One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue and the elimination of old waste and congestion. It has become evident that separation and drainage of fused, congested soft tissue produces an increase in tissue and systemic function and is a great catalyst for change in health.

Workshops are available. As an Educator Stacie Nevelus LMT, CMCE is willing to travel for class sizes of 10-12.
