What is Cupping?

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine where cups are placed on the skin to create suction. This practice is believed to stimulate blood flow, relieve muscle tension, and promote cell repair. It can be used alone or in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques such as myotherapy and massage.

Benefits of Cupping

Our Approach to Cupping

At Activ8 Myotherapy, our approach to cupping therapy combines traditional techniques with modern understanding of health and wellness. We ensure a safe and hygienic environment where each session is tailored to the individual’s needs and health objectives. Our therapists are expertly trained to determine the best application of cupping, depending on your specific conditions and desired outcomes.

How Cupping Works?

In a cupping session, our therapists place glass, bamboo, or silicone cups on the skin. A vacuum is then created within the cup, either by using heat or a suction device. This draws the skin up and allows for deep tissue manipulation. The cups are usually left in place for up to 10 minutes, during which time they may be moved gently across the skin to provide a massage-like effect.

When Do You Need Cupping Therapy?

Cupping is beneficial for those experiencing:

⦁    Chronic muscle pain and stiffness
⦁    Respiratory issues such as the common cold or asthma
⦁    Poor circulation
⦁    Anxiety and stress-related conditions
⦁    Sports injuries and recovery
⦁    Fatigue and poor energy levels
