At the House of Traditional Javanese Massage, Cupping is used to relieve muscle tension, promote blood & lymph circulation, detoxification & healing. Via the suction method, a partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin. The suction and pressure provided by cupping loosens muscles, regulates blood flow, and also has the ability to sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used widely to relief anxiety, back and neck aches, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even for weight loss purpose. For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.
