Do you have continuous back pain, high blood pressure or stress that builds up in your muscles? The buildup of toxins in the body can lead to chronic conditions, such as pain and various diseases. It’s essential to take steps to avoid toxins. You can eat clean, healthy foods and drink plenty of water as a great start, but a bad day at the office and old injuries may create problem areas that need more attention. Matrix Massage & Spa offers cupping therapy Salt Lake City residents need to relieve stress and promote blood flow to sensitive back tissues. With over 20 years of experience, our talented massage therapists help you get to the root of your problem and may suggest cupping therapy to alleviate tension, release toxins and promote healing in the affected areas.

What Is Suction Cup Therapy?

Suction cup therapy is a type of negative pressure massage. During a cupping session, the therapist uses heat and glass or silicone cups to create suction. Several cups are placed at strategic intervals around your back so the suction can release any restriction in the deeper body tissues. This promotes the free flow of sluggish blood and fluids needed to nourish your muscles and nerves.

Stagnant blood in painful, tight muscles and connecting tissue comes to the surface and drains away. Meanwhile, oxygenated blood brings desperately needed nutrients to heal the tissues. At Matrix Massage, we have the best cupping therapy SLC residents can experience. Our facility is equipped to treat couples and large groups and offers the largest variety of massages in Salt Lake City. Contact us to discuss a teambuilding event or to get the entire wedding party relaxed the day of the big event.

What are the Benefits of Cupping Therapy?

Derived from traditional Chinese medicine, suction cup therapy is now also widely available in the West. The Chinese masters, who practiced cupping along with acupuncture, believe that it removes stagnation and promotes the flow of qi, or vital lifeforce. In terms of Western science, the flow of blood and fluids throughout your body prevents imbalances and blockages that lead to health problems.

Cupping therapy benefits those with back and neck pain, as well as other health conditions, including:

  • Compressed Nerves
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pain
  • Shoulder Impingement
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Post Trauma

For best results, you can come to Matrix Massage & Spa up to three times a month to work on a problem area or to receive cupping therapy across your whole back. Your massage professional may suggest pairing it with another service, such as stretch or massage therapy for optimal results.

Massage Therapy FAQ’s

The law always requires that you be appropriately covered with sheets or towels to keep you comfortable and warm. If you start feeling uncomfortable or exposed, speak up. Your therapist will respect your wishes and work with you to make the massage session a comfortable one.
No, only undress as much as you are comfortable with. Some people prefer undressing completely, while others prefer to keep undergarments on. You'll have privacy in your massage room to undress before the session and redress afterwards.
It depends on your massage therapy goals. Some people get a monthly massage to manage stress or to prevent health problems. Others opt for weekly sessions if they need relief from injuries and chronic tension.
Licensing and certification mean that the massage therapist can legally practice massage in your city or state. To get this license, they must have performed several hours of training at an accredited school, past the extensive licensure exam, and have paid any relevant licensing fees.
Every insurance plan works a little differently, so your best bet is to contact your insurer directly. Some plans do cover alternative therapies including chiropractic and massage. You will likely need a doctor's prescription first. If you don't have health insurance, or if it doesn't cover massage therapy, you can find massage therapy coupons and discounts on our site.
How much depends on how pleased you are with the service and how much the massage costs (the full price, not any discounted fees). One easy trick is to think about how you would tip a waiter after a similarly priced restaurant meal. This is often 15-20% or more if you received exceptional service.
Let your massage therapist know before the session if there are areas on your body that you don't want to be touched. They will have the training and experience to give you a therapeutic massage while working around ticklish or sensitive places like your feet or abdomen.
Yes, absolutely. You should always speak up if something is uncomfortable. Secondly, keep the lines of communication open during deep tissue massage or sports injury massages. Your therapist needs the feedback to work on you properly and without aggravating an injury. On the other hand, if you are looking for relaxation, it's often best not to talk unless necessary. This lets your mind as well as your body release tension. With the right mindful breathing technique, you may even achieve a stress relieving meditative state during the massage.
Most likely, unless your doctor says otherwise. Prenatal massage can reduce and relieve common pregnancy issues like lower and upper back pain, sciatic nerve irritation, swelling, tension headaches, heartburn and constipation, and more. Let your massage therapist know that you're pregnant so they can use the right techniques during the session.
