Cupping Therapy

Cups are placed onto the skin in a way that causes a vacuum inside the cup. The vacuum sucks the skin into the cup which is left in place for up to 20 minutes. Several cups can be used in one treatment. Massage oil is applied to help the cups slide across the skin. This technique helps the blood and ‘qi’ to flow more easily, especially where there are areas of stagnation.

Injury Rehabilitation

Trying to work through pain is not recommended as pain is your body’s way of telling you to stop or slow down. If you choose to ignore this, healing can be impaired and it may take you longer to heal. Full movement can be achieved. For long term illness and chronic conditions, you may not regain full movement but can benefit from better mobility that can make a huge difference to your life. Using a maintenance support program and working alongside your therapist is very important for your recovery. It can help you to focus on your recovery and supports you during the treatment process. It also helps by making sure that you’re completing the exercises given by your therapist in the correct way.
