By creating suction; cupping massage is a deep tissue massage used to stimulate the blood flow to the muscles and skin, loosen adhesions and drain excess fluid and toxins.
Massage with cups is part of a traditional Russian massage and is used in this case prior to performing honey massage.
For a honey massage, honey is applied on the skin and massaged until it becomes “sticky” and white pellets appear on the skin surface. These pellets are believed to be toxins and salts that have been drawn from the body and absorbed by the honey. In addition, beneficial nutrients from the honey are transferred to the body’s tissues and the skin is left feeling nourished and moisturised.
This massage mainly concentrate on the back but could be performed all over the body. In this case it would most probably require few sessions.
Unfortunately this massage is not really appropriate for hairy body.
