Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.

The therapy has been further developed as a means to open the ‘Meridians’ (energy centres) of the body. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping brings fresh blood to the area and improves circulation and is widely used for aches and pains.

Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve the appearance of cellulite.

At the Leafy Green Studio cupping is offered on its own as a treatment for sciatica.  Please allow 20 minutes for this treatment @ £20.  Sometimes only one session is necessary but each individual requires different treatment.

Cupping is also offered as a treatment for back tension.  Please allow 30 minutes for this @ £20.  Back tension cannot be treated by cupping alone so we discuss the reason for the stress on the body and a maintenance plan which may include further sessions, massage, Pilates or yoga, weight loss or lifestyle choices.

Cupping may also be used within a regular massage at the studio.  This will be discussed with the client if thought to be beneficial.

Please email the studio to arrange your cupping therapy.
