Cupping Header Image


Cupping involves placing a glass or plastic cup on the skin and creating a vacuum. Skin, muscle and connective tissue are drawn up into the cup and stretched, increasing blood supply to the muscle and decreasing restriction between the layers of muscle and connective tissue. A purple mark is often visible for few days after the cup is removed but the relief lasts longer.

What are the benefits of Cupping?

  • Increase circulation to the area
  • Help to reduce adhesions between layers of tissues
  • Decrease pain and stiffness in muscles
  • Improve motion range and flexibility

How long does the treatment take?

Cupping is usually utilized with other techniques during your session to obtain optimal results. The cups remain in place for 5-10 minutes while other techniques are used.

You can decide the length of your massage or discuss with the therapist if unsure.

If the area that needs to be treated is small (calves, arms, lower or upper back) a 30 minutes treatment will suffice, if more than one district (upper back and neck, legs and lower back) need attention, you will need a minimum of 45 or 60 minutes. An effective full body treatment requires 90 minutes.

How often should Cupping be performed?

Your therapist will assess and advise you on the best treatment plan. Usually the first 2 or 3 visits are performed weekly or fortnightly, then every 4 or 6 weeks to re-assess and maintain a pain free body.

Allow a minimum of 2 days between any treatment. You may still feel sore after your visit but your body needs some time to rest and re-set before receiving another remedial massage.
