Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine which involves the placement of cups onto the skin to create suction. We are sure you have seen images and heard stories, so we wanted to give you some information about what cupping therapy is and if you could benefit from it 🙌 The aim of cupping, as with most therapeutic treatment is to encourage healing and pain relief. ❓ So, how does it work? ❓ Cupping increases ⬆️blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This can reduce ⬇️ muscle tension, improve blood flow, promote cell repair and give an overall improvement to wellbeing. At Better Bodies, we practice dry cupping using polycarbonate cups, with a hand pump creating the suction. As with most alternative and therapeutic medicine, there is research to prove and disprove the effectiveness. So if you're sceptical 🤔 come and give it a try for yourself!
Cupping therapy can be used as well as or instead of other treatments we offer at BBST. If you would like some more info or want to book in for some cupping, just drop us a message 👍📩
