Cupping in Hoppers Crossing

Cupping therapyCupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine. The process enhances circulation and supports the body’s natural healing processes. This modality may help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and promote relaxation and wellness.

How It Works

Special round cups are placed on the skin for a few minutes to create suction, which helps relax muscles and connective tissues, and promotes blood flow to the area. Cupping could complement an existing care plan to relieve symptoms or be incorporated into an overall wellness regime to support and maintain health.

Frequently Asked Questions

What creates the suction?

The cup uses air pressure to create suction. It is not hooked up to any mechanical equipment, so you can experience your session in peace.

Does it leave a mark?

There is often some discolouration in the immediate area where the cup was applied. The process can cause broken blood vessels under the skin, much like a bruise, but you should heal in 7-10 days. The other alternative option is sliding cupping – which promotes relaxation and helps ease muscle tension – this does not leave a mark

Does it hurt?

Most people find it therapeutic benefit and gives them relief. It usually does not hurt

Who is cupping for?
