Cupping is an ancient technique used to promote movement, increase circulation and relieve painful conditions of the body.
Cupping is one of the many tools used by traditional Chinese medicine practitioners during a treatment.
Application of Cupping
The application of cupping is through suction. The suction gives you a feeling of tightness which is different to the feeling of pressure that you would get during a massage.
The action of the suction of the cups promotes self healing.
During a treatment with the Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners at Ultra Health Therapies cupping will be used to help relieve many conditions some of which are listed here...
- sore and tight muscles
- the relief of cold and flu
- stiff neck, shoulder and joint pain
- relief of lower back pain
- used to reduce cellulite
There are very few side effects experienced with cupping. Not everyone is suitable for cupping and a full consultation with one of our experienced practitioners will ensure a safe and effective treatment outcome.
This therapy is used in conjunction with the holistic approach of Traditional Chinese medicine and therefore does not incur a singular cost.
