Dry cupping 

Dry cupping originates from traditional Chinese medicine and is an ancient holistic treatment used to treat pain and injuries, whether from sports or everyday activities.  

Cupping pulls the stagnant blood to the surface to stimulate healing by helping to develop and replenishing the muscles with fresh oxygenated blood by a process called neovascularisation. 

Cupping is generally painless but can cause some 'hickey' like suction marks.

By speeding up the recovery process, the cups aim to target the musculoskeletal system to reduce muscular tension and restore range of motion.

The cups can be placed over trigger point areas statically, they can also be moved along the length of the muscle and a few other different techniques to improve muscular tension.

When ageing, our body starts to degenerate, this includes our muscles too. The blood supply to the tissues decrease and this means the fascia of the muscle gets knotted and scarred, which can limit movement.

What Is Cupping Therapy?


Dry cupping therapy is derived from traditional Chinese medicine, and is an ancient holistic treatment made widely popular for its natural healing abilities; alleviating musculoskeletal tension and pain.

By applying suction to precise areas of the body, stagnant fluid is drawn into the treated area, stimulating the body’s natural healing process, and replenishes muscles with oxygenated blood through a process called neovascularization. This helps to reduce muscular tension and aid with your mobility.
