Cupping therapy

Cupping is a popular treatment. At Harmony Massage we combine this technique with Sports / Remedial Massage to optimise the benefits from this therapy.

Cupping involves placing plastic jars on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation and help relieve pain from the tissues and increases healing process.

You usually will feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup. Often, this sensation is relaxing and soothing, although some people may find it a bit uncomfortable. Depending on your comfort and your practitioner's assessment of the problem, cups may be moved around or left in place. Each treatment is unique to you on that particular day. One very common area to be cupped is the back, although cups work well on other areas

This treatment is available on 60 minutues slots to make sure we work in depth the soft tissue combining massage and the use of the cups.
