Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies are built on an understanding of health through balance. Symptoms, such as pain or anxiety, are signals that your health is not at its optimum.
Our therapies complement one another and may be recommended in combination. Cupping sessions may be recommended on their own or as part of an acupuncture therapy session.
Please allow 90 minutes for your initial treatment and 60 minutes for follow-up sessions. For more on what to expect, click here.
Cupping is a soft tissue therapy that feels a lot like a deep tissue massage. It’s performed by placing a suction cup on the painful area. This creates a vacuum to encourage the nearby muscles to relax, restricted fluids and nutrients to flow freely again, and pain to subside.
Cupping has been practised in Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. Our practitioners are skilled in all types of cupping therapy: traditional; myofascial; modern; dynamic; and walking cupping.
The most common applications for cupping therapy include treating lower back and leg pain, neck and shoulder tension, and fibromyalgia. It can also help to treat respiratory problems such as asthma, and digestive and menstrual problems. For answers to commonly asked questions about cupping, please visit our learning centre.
