Cupping

Through either heat or suction, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place for five to fifteen minutes. It is believed by some to help treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling. This technique is used extensively in the treatment of our high level athletes to assist in recovery from the wear and tear caused by training and competition.
