Cupping

What is Cupping?

Melbourne's most popular Functional Cupping clinic located in the South East suburbs. Cupping Therapy is the application of cups being applied to the surface of the skin with suction that mimics the hand movements of some myotherapy techniques.

The suction between the cup and the skin causes the skin to lift slightly from the muscles. This allows impurities and cellular waste products in the muscles and fascia (connective tissue) to be drawn towards the surface and expelled through the skin’s pores.

Cupping Therapy is recommended for all conditions for which a patient would seek Myotherapy.

Benefits of cupping?

We can use cupping in two different ways: One technique we do is to slide the cups up and down the area being cupped. The skin has been oiled so the cup is able to glide smoothly without pulling on the skin.

The other technique we use is to stand the cups on the skin and not move them. Standing cups can be left in place for just a few minutes or up to 20 minutes. Cups can be used almost anywhere on the body – along the spine, on shoulders and shoulder blades, on hips, low backs and over joints – to relieve inflammation and soreness.

What does Cupping Therapy treat?

Cupping Therapy is used in Myotherapy to treat many conditions. Cupping can be used to target a particular area and increase blood flow, lymph and Qi. Those with poor circulation, back pain, tight muscles or muscle pain, skin conditions, flu, fever, allergies and anxiety are known to benefit from cupping therapy.

Most people can benefit from cupping therapy, however those who bleed easily or cannot stop bleeding or have skin ulcers or edema should seek other forms of treatment. Cupping Therapy is recommended for all conditions for which a patient would seek Myotherapy, book today.
