Cupping massage therapy - what is it?

Cupping massage therapy, a form of alternative medicine, helps to relieve pain, inflammation, stimulates blood flow, and promotes relaxation.

Our sports therapist, Paul, provides this as part of his therapies along with manipulations, acupuncture, exercises to improve mobility and lots of advise on how to improve and heal your injuries.

Here is some information from Paul on the treatment.

"Proponents believe that Cupping therapy or suction helps facilitate the flow of “qi” in the body. Qi is a Chinese word meaning life force.

Many believe that cupping helps balance yin and yang, or the negative and positive, within the body. Restoring balance between these two extremes is thought to help with the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as its ability to increase blood flow and reduce pain.

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair."

Paul is now taking booking for Tuesday 12th April and Tuesday 10th May.
