Cupping, an ancient method of health care dates back to 1550 BC. European and American doctors adn surgeons used cupping therapy to treat a variety of conditions up to the early 1900s until modern pharmaceuticals became an easier method of treating illness and imbalance. Cupping is still used in Hospitals in China. It has seen a resurgence recently as people seek out alternative, drug-free therapies to deal with their health issues.
The primary objective of cupping therapy in conjunction with massage is to promote circulation and relax the muscles. It also loosens adhesions in the superficial fascia, enabling the practitioner to work deeper into the musculature
Cupping therapy also has many benefits on different systems in the body including: skin, respiratory system, circulatory system, muscles, joints, digestive system
Cupping is great for overall well-being and relaxation, frozen shoulder, knee pain, hamstring/Iliotibial band tightness and lymphatic drainage. It can also be used cosmetically as a treatment for sallow, sagging skin, cellulite reduction and weight loss by stimulating metabolism and digestion
Sessions can be booked as cupping-only or as a combination of massage and cupping together.
*Note: Cupping is generally safe for everyone, however certain medical conditions are contraindicated (ie: those with internal/external bleeding, pregnant women should not receive cupping therapy on abdomen, those with heart disease/pacemakers). Contact Kristine if you have any questions
