Does anyone have feed back on massage cupping machines.  I am taking the medi-cupping class this weekend.  Three people in my office have bought their machine and the cases have cracked or they've quit working after 2 years.  One woman replaced it with a NV 600B Vacuum Therapy Machine.  It is much quieter, but am wondering if anyone knows if it will last longer than the Medicupping MC 600?

sounds out of scope and in the realm of PT. I see so many Therapists using machines today which shouldn't be called massage. Better to learn modalities suited to you than relying on electronic devices. If the techniques cause fatigue or pain, learn others.

Ii is not out of your scope of pratice to learn other forms of massage. Learn about something before you respond to someone. The machine is a tool. You can do massage cupping without the machine, it is just easier and a more smooth massage. Do you even know about the machine? The machine it not used on the body.

I am looking into both machines. I am glad you mentioned the NV 600, because I am seeing that it is cheaper then the MC 600. I am currently practicing with a fellow massage therapist with manual cups. So I am looking into the machine. Wish I could help you out with your question. But you did give me some good info. Thanks

I ordered the NV 600 from e-bay.  It works well and came quickly.  Love it

Hollie,

thanks, I just ordered one from ebay.

It's described as "Vacuum Therapy Breast Enhancer Beauty Equipment NV-600 ".  Not something I'm interested in.  I am a massage therapist.

Not according to its website.  It's full name is Vacuum Therapy Breast Enhancer Beauty Equipment NV-600.

Gary, Vacuu therapy has a wide range of applications. Like vacuu therapy is also when a women is pumping for feed her child. Lets put it this way. If it was just for breast, you would not get 21 different cups. And boy would those small cups hurt on breasts.Try looking into Medi cupping. ACE massage cupping. You don't seem to want to help your people more, by exploring different modalities. That is your choice. But like I said earlier. If you don't know about something, you should keep your mouth shut. To me as a Massage Therapist, I will learn any modality that is going to provide my clients with the fastest healing and pain relief possible. I like my hands on my clients, but when you can have something help to remove congestion  and bring circulation back to the area. Then you can get deep and be more effective. Why wouldn't you want that? But hey, thats just me.

Sorry.  Just my opinion that it ain't massage therapy and has no place in a massage office.

Again Gary, you need to do some research before you make judgement. Your opinion is based in ignorance. HMMM that is why the AMTA at their convention had a workshop on it. Because the American Massage THerapy Association doesn't know as much as you I guess.

Jennifer, did I not say that I was expressing MY opinion?  Am I not entitled to one?  I absolutely do know what is best for me and the way I work. 

My tools are my hands, knuckles, forearms, elbows, occasionally a foot.  I don't use knobbies, thumbies (or whatever those are called).  I use hot/cold pads and steamed towels rather than stones--my preference.  If I ever decided to invest in manufactured tools, maybe I'll  give your company a call.  Okay?  Can we move on now? 

Gary reply: "Sorry.  Just my opinion that it ain't massage therapy and has no place in a massage office." your words"

 

Your opinion that it isn't massage therapy is incorrect.  That is what we were discussing. You won't even check out Massage cupping or medi-cupping. because you are too righteous. That you perferr using your hands was not what you were talking about. Now, I don't know where you get "my company". I am a massage therapist. I don't believe in using my elbow except in the Gluts. I use only my hands. And I mainly only do deep tissue.   But I did research into this. You are making comments and "opinions" on something you don't know about. And being a good massage therapist is about looking into many modalities. Even if you don't want to do it, you should at the very least know what you are arguing about. Really it is pathetic. You can agree or disagree about something, but if you don't know what it is about, you just look like an idiot. This disscusion was about a model of macichine for medi-cupping. To make comments that it isn't massage and doesn't belong in a massage office you need to back it up. Instead of copying and pasting what a seller of ONE of the machines advertsing the machine for. You do what you want for your clients. Nobody cares. I will do everything I can to help bring more healing to mine. now unless you actually have something intelligent to saying about the actual topic, why don't you move on.
