Cupping is not only beneficial for muscular pain; it can also be used for the following conditions: general muscular tension, common colds, sporting injuries. These are just a few conditions that cupping can prove to be extremely beneficial.
Choose from 60 to 90 minute single or packaged sessions where our skilled therapists will take a number of silicone cups and apply them to your body. The suction anchors the cup to the body and the area of skin covered is drawn up a few millimeters into the cup.
