Cupping is an alternative medicine that dates back thousands of years to Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. Cupping has started gaining popularity again in the last decade and for good reason too!
Our certified remedial massage therapist can utilise vacuum cupping during your massage treatment. The cups are applied to the skin with mild suction to pick up the fascia and muscles. The cups may be used in gliding motions across the area or left on the skin in specific tension areas for roughly 5-8 minutes.

Cupping increases circulation to the area and encourages the lymphatic system (immune system) to flush waste from the body. This helps the body repair damaged muscle fibres and can relieve musculoskeletal pain and stiffness.

You may have seen the ‘bruises’ that people get after cupping but there is a bit of misconception about these marks. In areas of tightness or dysfunction, the cups may leave discolouration from a light pink to a deep purple tone due to the amount of waste and stagnation in the body. These marks are not painful as there is no trauma to the muscle or skin and typically disappear between a few hours to 10-12 days.
