Conditions that respond to ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy:
ACE Massage Cupping™ continues to evolve as new equipment is located and creative applications are discovered. The techniques relieve inflammation, sedate the nervous system, move stagnant lymph and blood, hydrate and nourish tissue, shift tissue PH, and can be used on acute and chronic conditions for all ages!
ACE Massage Cupping™ applications for the face evolved from the discovery of wonderful MICRO-CUPS that can be used to vacuum across the skin, or mimic the pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. This procedure can easily be done in a few minutes, and is simply a manual method that mimics equipment currently in use today. The benefits include increased local circulation to the skin, bringing nutrition to the surface, stimulating natural elasticity along with enhanced assimilation of ampoules, masks and serums. Vacuum therapy on the face is remarkable for relieving sinus congestion and for draining stagnant fluids to ease puffiness, while eyebrows often actually lift back up to the brow line! The muscles of the face benefit greatly from reduced tension and tightness, easing expression lines and loosening rigid muscles associated with TMJ disorders. Lines, wrinkles and scar tissue will soften with ACE Massage Cupping™, and rosaceous or congested skin can quickly clear. This is a perfect preparation and recovery protocol for any facial surgeries.
ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy for body treatments has yielded amazing results when combined with a simple Aromatherapy Cocoon for weight reduction, stop smoking and more. Adding VacuTherapies™ into a body treatment not only enhances absorption of applied products, but assists in the drainage of stagnant fluids. While it is not recommended to combine ACE Massage Cupping ™ with aggressive exfoliation treatments, it is easily integrated into most body treatment procedures.
Almost any massage therapy modality can be enhanced by the addition of ACE Massage Cupping™ bodywork. The wide range of equipment and machines that are now available allows for a variety of applications and benefits. Pre- and post-surgical benefits create increased professional and personal referrals. Private therapists and spas can choose manual glass or polycarbonate sets that require a simple pump to create the vacuum, then upgrade to a machine to support continuing success and ease for the practitioner.
Micro-cup sets and magnetic micro-cups allow for ACE Massage Cupping™ therapy to be used for injuries and pain management, neuropathy, scar reduction, joint issues, and scoliosis. Reflexology treatments for the hands, feet and face are easily enhanced with micro-cup magnets, and they can also be used with knowledge of trigger points, neuro-lymphatic points and shiatsu tsubos. These powerful tools are used to shift the PH of tissue, enabling release of old debris and enhanced blood and lymphatic flow. Another age-old tool with modern applications and exciting results!
