Dry Cupping Therapy

Dry Cupping, with its roots tracing back to ancient civilizations, is a wellness ritual designed to nurture both your physical and energetic well-being. Imagine delicate glass cups, artfully placed upon your skin, working in concert with your body's energy to encourage balance and relaxation.
Also known as air cupping or suction cupping, this therapeutic technique involves creating a vacuum within cups and placing them on specific areas of the body. These cups can be made of various materials, such as glass, silicone, or plastic. By creating suction, dry cupping helps to stimulate circulation, relieve muscle tension, and encourage the flow of energy, sometimes referred to as “Chi” or “Prana” throughout the body.
During a dry cupping session, your therapist will use a flame to create a vacuum within the cup and then quickly places the cup upon your skin. As the cup cools down, suction is created which draws the skin and underlying tissues upwards into the cup. This suction stimulates blood flow, promotes the release of toxins, and encourages the body’s natural healing tendencies.
It is also a very relaxing treatment; the warmth of the cups strategically along the body's energy pathways, means that tension and stress begins to melt away.
Dry cupping is renowned for its ability to alleviate muscle tension and pain. The suction created by the cups helps to increase blood circulation to the affected area, delivering vital nutrients and oxygen while removing metabolic waste products. This process can provide significant relief for conditions such as back pain, neck and shoulder tension, and sports injuries.
This treatment is also supportive of maintaining a healthy blood circulation, which is vital for your well-being.  It helps to improve circulation by stimulating the flow of blood through the capillaries, arteries, and veins. Improved circulation brings oxygen and nutrients to the cells so that the removal of waste products and toxins can occur. This has a very positive effect on many aspects of health and wellness, including the immune system and skin health. The suction created by the cups helps to increase blood flow to the surface of the skin, bringing a healthy glow, and stimulating collagen production, in turn reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

A session of Dry Cupping lasts for one hour and the fee is £60.
