TCM & Cupping

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practised widely for many centuries. Cupping is an energy therapy where air is expelled from a cup made of glass, bamboo, plastic or rubber by either using a flame, a pump or by squeezing. This creates a decompression in the tissue the exact reverse of massage which creates a  compression, this lifts the tissues up into the cup where they are held for anything up to 5 minutes and stimulates the trigger points for the muscular system. When the tissue is released it should fall back into place correctly. Cupping has been described as "the multi function therapy" due to its many uses in sports  injury rehabilitation and general all round health.

Fire Cupping

 Cupping

Fire cupping uses a flame to expel the oxygen from the glass cup, which is then quickly placed over the skin to create a strong vacuum. This is the strongest form of cupping and various methods including flash and static are employed to work with the cups. Pump cupping is another method of expelling the air from the cups and is used around joints as well as the main muscle groups. An excellent therapy for sports injury rehabilitation.

Cosmetic Cupping

Cosmetic Cupping

During a cosmetic cupping session, small rubber cups are used on either the face for facial rejuvenation or applied directly over cellulite to break down the "orange peel" effect on the skin. Oils are applied to face to assist the sliding motion of the cups. This improves the lymphatic drainage bringing revitalisation to the skin of the face.
