Dry Cupping (Used during sports massage)

A plastic cup is placed on the skin and the air within the cup is removed causing a vacuum effect.

Cupping is primarily used for pain relief and muscle relaxation.

You may benefit from cupping if you suffer from neck, shoulder and lower back pain.

 

Cupping increases blood flow to the skin creating a mild immune response and also increases anti-inflammatory chemicals in the body. 

It stretches tight muscles making it a beneficial treatment for athletes.

Please note that you will more than likely get round bruises where the cups have been, this is normal and they will disappear in about a week.
