Cupping Therapy

Glen Forrest Phsio Pilates Beth Antonio

“Where there’s stagnation, there will be pain. Remove the stagnation, and you will remove the pain” — Philosophy behind cupping therapy.

Cupping therapy involves applying negative pressure directly onto the skin with the use of sterilised plastic or silicone cups, allowing for stimulation of the sensory nerves of the skin and increased blood flow into the restricted and problematic areas.

Cupping therapy may leave you with some common bruising marks that are caused by the suction technique  and will clear within 3-5 days. Cupping Therapy is used throughout your remedial massage treatment and together allows for a more effective healing approach.

Cupping therapy helps with breaking down of the damaged tissues that may be causing muscle pain, muscle stiffness or muscle tension and allows the body to heal at a faster rate.

Many Benefits may include; 

  • increased blood flow
  • regain elasticity
  • removes stagnation
  • aids in increasing the process of toxin elimination
  • increased range of motion
  • reduces pain sensitivity
