Massage Myths – Contraindications

Contraindication is a long word with a simple meaning: a reason you shouldn’t receive a particular treatment, such as a massage. There are local contraindications—things like a small wound—that shouldn’t be massaged directly, but that don’t mean you can’t still get a perfectly good massage on other parts of your body.

Contraindications can be an illness like the flu, a treatment or medication like a strong blood [...]

Cupping is a technique using suction to pull blood and fluid that is stuck in the muscles to the surface layers of the skin to put it back into the bloodstream for processing. The newly oxygenated blood then flows back into the area to promote healing. Cupping originated in Asia thousands of years ago. Cupping is noninvasive; it decompresses the muscles instead of compressing with regular therapeutic massage. Since it's noninvasive, many athletes at the Olympics (made popular by Michael Phelps) were getting [...]
