Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a safe traditional treatment that helps to resolve chronic muscle tightness and pain faster than massage therapy alone.

Cupping has been used since the 14 century and is used in traditional Chinese medicine to remove stagnation and stimulate the flow of qi. Qi is the free flow of vital energy circulating through the body and the world around us. If the qi is disrupted or disturbed, it can create stagnation (blockages) or imbalances in the body.

Cupping decompresses soft tissues using vacuum Jo suction, unlike any other forms of massage that compresses soft tissue.

During a cupping treatment, the cup gentle sucks skin and lifts the underlying soft tissue in to the cup. Toxins and bad blood are brought to the surface, leaving way for a healthy flow to the underlying structures. It is believed that the improved circulation is the central way cupping helps us to heal - through the repair of cells and muscle relaxation that comes from a healthy blood flow.

After treatment, mild soreness maybe experienced from the build up of lactic acid in the muscle tissue but probably less soreness than a deep tissue massage.

Bruises maybe visible, the darker the bruise, the more toxins have been brought to the surface. Bruising may last for days after but generally last 1 to 10 days.

Almost anyone can benefit from cupping. It is used to treat lack of mobility, tight muscles, scar tissue and other diagnoses suck as headache, tendinitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia and the release of trigger points.
