Most of you know we offer Remedial Massage at PhysioHealth Corrimal. But did you know, our Physiotherapists and Remedial Massage Therapists are also qualified in ‘cupping ‘therapy?
What is Cupping you ask?
Cupping Therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction.
This therapy mobilises blood flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments.
Our therapists use a Relaxing Dry Cupping Method to assist releasing tight muscular and fascial tissue.
The cup is generally left in place for five to 10 minutes.
Or an alternative is the sliding of the cup along the line of the muscle toward the lymph nodes.
Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and middle Eastern Cultures!
It’s in one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world…
There’s loads of benefits from cupping, but even if you have the niggling annoying headache, why not give it a go. Cupping therapy may be used in conjunction with your massage if requested or felt beneficial by your Massage Therapist.
Just remember, Cupping can leave a light bruise on the area of treatment.
And sometimes, the eye wouldn’t even know you’ve had it.
But the relief and the outcome of cupping far over weighs a few small bruises.
You will LOVE it!
