How does ACE Massage Cupping & MediCupping 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 & MediCupping is a wonderfully effective way 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 & MediCupping 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 & MediCupping 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 & MediCupping include a revolutionary face lifting and drainage treatment, magnetic micro-cup treatments for the body, and magnetic reflexology for the feet and hands. The magnetic equipment has shown great results in the treatment of scoliosis and past injury sites. In addition, the magnetic therapy yields amazing results with neuropathy, along with pain common with diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, edema, sciatica, and more.
Cupping therapy can be used to move stagnation, relieve inflammation, and drain/move fluids. The action is similar to the action of fomentations/hot compresses. The mechanism is to draw blood from the arteries to the capillaries. The blood then returns via the veins to be cleansed or disposed of. Cupping is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out but does not add to it.
ACE Massage Cupping & MediCupping is also used to lift and stretch soft tissue (muscle, fascia/connective, attachments), separate fused tissue layers (i.e. ITB and TFL), release and soften scar tissue, open body drainage systems to aid in decongesting “solid bloat” and increase hydration of tissues. Bones also respond well to treatment.

Conditions Benefiting From ACE Massage Cupping & MediCupping
Cupping has been used extensively for asthma and pneumonia. The respiratory system and phlegm respond very well to ACE Massage Cupping & MediCupping therapy and this can ease labored breathing. The effect on the nervous system is sedating and is widely used for high blood pressure conditions, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, chronic headaches, neuralgia and rheumatism. Pain relief is quick, and long-term injuries and restrictions can release in one or a few treatments. Scar tissue softens quickly. Lymph drainage using Massage Cupping™ can greatly benefit pre- and post-operative conditions and may assist in the healing process.
