Sports Massage & Cupping Therapy

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to bring about benefits to a person whom engages in regular physical activity or whom is recovering from injury. Soft tissue includes skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. A Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Cupping Therapy dates dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.

Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which  cups are applied to the skin for a few minutes to create suction, the cups can either be glided upon the skin or remain static.

The main reported benefits of cupping therapy are; the reduction of pain and inflammation, to increase blood flow and to promote relaxation and well-being, as a type of deep massage. 

At the clinic we use glass cups with the dry method, using a rubber pump to create the vacuum inside the cup. The cups are moved up and down the muscles to create a massage-like effect and are also used to assist myofascial release.
