Cupping therapy involves the used of silicone or plastic "cups" which create suction on the tissue. The idea is to create space between the skin and the underlying fascia to help reduce restrictions. During a cupping session, your therapist will use a combination of static (non moving) and dynamic (moving) applications as needed. Some marking on the skin is normal but should only last a few days. This therapy can be used during any treatment upon request. (Be sure to check Therapist's description on booking page to ensure this treatment is offered by the RMT you are booking with)
