Cupping therapy has been used for thousands of years within different cultures to encourage internal healing and help alleviate deep muscular problems. By using negative pressure glass cups are used on the body to access deeper layers of the muscle fascia.
The pressure within the cups creates a vacuum and pulls the skin and muscle gently upwards which increases blood flow and reduces muscle compression. Due to the negative even pressure the cups can be used on the spine and bones.
This is then used in combination with multiple massage techniques such as deep tissue, trigger point and myofascial release to help reduce and release intricate muscular problems. This a great treatment if you regularly exercise or you are involved within contact sports, endurance training or running.
Clients have also benefited from cupping for a variety of chronic muscular conditions.
Laura is an established cupping and massage therapist since 2009. She uses a multi-faceted approach to individually cater to each client and is qualified in over 10 massage techniques.
