Dry Cupping Therapy

Also known as Myofascial Decompression, Dry Cupping Therapy originated in Eastern China and Africa. This method of treatment is used to relieve pain and tension in the body.

Dry cupping  is a negative pressure soft tissue treatment technique that uses suction via plastic or silicone cups to manipulate the skin and underlying soft tissues

What to expect

We can include cupping during your massage session or we can have a 30 min follow up cupping session when relevant to treat one specific area.

It is very likely that cupping may create dark circles/bruises on your skin following treatment that can last for a few days after treatment. This is nothing to worry about and it shouldn’t be painful.

Conditions that can be treated

  • Muscle spasms and pain
  • Chronic back problems and pain
  • Acute and chronic muscle tension
  • Headaches, including reducing the frequency and intensity of migraines
  • Neck pain

  • Stimulate blood flow to the area
