Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. We use it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
The cups leave round bruises on the body, wherever they are placed. They are not normal bruises, as they don't hurt like normal bruises. Most patients leave feeling quite well with pain relieved!
The cups we use are made of glass and plastic.
