Cupping

Cupping therapy, an ancient practice rooted in traditional Chinese medicine, utilizes suction cups on the skin to stimulate blood flow and aid in natural healing. This technique is gaining popularity among athletes due to its potential to reduce muscle soreness, enhance recovery, and improve performance. By creating suction, cupping increases circulation, facilitating the removal of toxins and metabolic waste from tissues. The distinctive circular marks seen post-treatment signify increased blood flow to the targeted areas, aiding in pain relief and muscle relaxation. Our practitioners skillfully employ cupping therapy to support your well-being and recovery when appropriate.
