Becoming increasingly well known, thanks in part to the number of celebrities and Olympic athletes employing this therapy.

Used in treating muscular skeletal problems such as frozen shoulder and spondylitis. Clients find this very relaxing and often feel immediate relief.

On occasion cupping may leave a discolouration on the skin – this will dissapear in due time.

This is not a bruise but a result of blood being brought to just under the skin surface – often occurs where adhesions and stagnation are present and are a symptom of an underactive lymphatic system.

Cupping is also popular as a method of helping to reduce cellulite as part of an holistic weight control/ reduction programme.

Cupping is being recognised as being particularly beneficial for lung related conditions such as Asthma, Bronchitis and conditions such as coughs and wheezes.
