Dry Cupping


What is dry cupping?

Dry cupping is a manual therapy that involves positioning a cup on the skin and creating a vacuum to apply negative pressure. This negative pressure increases blood flow to the area. It utilises a system involving a cup and manual hand pump which creates the negative pressure once the cup is applied.

Cupping can help relieve muscle tension and tightness, and anyone with pain, stiffness or breathing problems

Cupping works well in conjunction with other therapies such as sports and remedial massage, dry needling and joint mobilisation.

What are the side effects of cupping?

Cupping frequently causes cupping marks on the skin. This is due to bringing blood to the surface. The marks from cupping can last for a few days up to 2 weeks.

Our practitioner, Aj, has extensive experience in the rehabilitation and recovery sector with a passion for helping individuals to reap the benefits of his treatments. He studied Kinesiology in North America as a student athlete and completed an MSc in Sports Therapy at BNU, and has gone on to work as a Sports Therapist in clinics and sports teams since.

In a matter of months at Back2Normal his patients who are undergoing Sports Massage therapy are already seeing the benefits and have praised him for his ability to tailor each treatment to what they need and he will continue to do this with his Cupping treatments.
