Myofascial dry cupping is a great form of therapy.
Cupping therapy is a traditional healing practice that has been used for thousands of years in many cultures around the world. The therapy involves placing cups on the skin to create a vacuum, which draws the skin and underlying tissues into the cup. This suction effect is said to promote blood flow, reduce pain, and improve overall wellbeing.
Back Pain: Cupping therapy can be effective in treating back pain caused by muscle tension, spasms or strains. The suction of the cups can help to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and relieve tension in the muscles.
Neck Pain: Cupping therapy can be used to treat neck pain caused by tension, poor posture, or injury. The cups can help to release tension in the muscles, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation.
Here are some of the common musculoskeletal conditions that can be treated with cupping therapy:
Shoulder Pain: Cupping therapy can be used to treat shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff injuries, frozen shoulder, or arthritis. The cups can help to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Knee Pain: Cupping therapy can be used to treat knee pain caused by osteoarthritis or injuries. The cups can help to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, and promote healing.
Plantar Fasciitis: Cupping therapy can be used to treat plantar fasciitis, a common condition that causes pain in the heel and arch of the foot. The cups can help to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Cupping therapy can be used to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist and hand. The cups can help to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and relieve pressure on the nerves.
Fibromyalgia: Cupping therapy can be used to treat fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition that affects the muscles and joints. The cups can help to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation, and relieve tension in the muscles.

We hope that these FAQs will cover some of your initial queries about our Cupping Therapy Treatments.
What to expect during an initial appointment?
We first run through an patient consultation, where we gather information which is relevant to your injury, health and lifestyle.
The consulation provides us a background to how to approach the cupping massage (i.e. any adaptations we need to apply), and what muscles and soft tissues are likely to need attention.
How long are the massage appointments?
We provide a range of Cupping Therapy treatments, either 30, 60 or 90 minutes.
New patients require an initial consultation which requires an additional 15 minutes for the appointment. - ensuring you get your full treatment time!
How many treatments am I likely to need?
Each body is unique and responds differently to treatment, so we take an individual approach too.
If there is a lot of tension built up, then often having a couple of treatments closer together will enable us to get the tension under control.
Some patients find that they are able to keep muscles relieved through exercise and stretches.
Others find that regular 'maintenance' treatments help them manage stress and tension long-term.
