Wake Wellness / Our Services / Cupping

‘Myofascial Cupping’ or ‘Cupping’ is an ancient Chinese therapy that applies a plastic cup to the skin, then the pressure in the cup is reduced by suction to draw and hold skin and superficial muscle tissue/fascia inside the cup. Sometimes, while the suction is active, the cup is moved, pulling the skin and muscle. This process is called ‘gliding cupping’. Cupping is applied to certain acupuncture points, as well as to parts of the body that have been affected by pain or muscle/fascia tightness where the pain is deeper than the tissues to be pulled. The cupping process draws blood from your vessels and into your tissue. Your body thinks it’s been injured, so the theory is that it ‘jumpstarts’ a positive inflammatory response, mobilizing antibodies to the area to try to heal it.

What people are saying

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to visit and book my next appointment at Wake Wellness. I waited for a friend to have a treatment and it felt like the logo says -Wake Wellness. You definitely feel the Wellness atmosphere, I had an amazing greeting, coffee, breakfast if I didn't have time at home. Many wonderful places in Midland but I am so very happy to have such a Wellness, health felt experience when I walked in the door. What a wonderful addition to the services we come to expect in Midland.
