Cupping Therapy

Our highly trained physiotherapists use Cupping Therapy as a safe and effective treatment technique to reduce pain, promote healing, improve circulation and reduce inflammation in affected areas of the body and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. 

How Does Cupping  Therapy Work? 

This effective treatment technique works by placing glass or silicone suction cups on the skin to create suction to draw the skin and underlying tissue up into the cup, creating suction on the skin, which pulls blood and other fluids to the surface.
