Cupping therapy

Fire cupping and suction cupping are both types of traditional Chinese medicine practices that involve the use of cups to create suction on the skin. However, they differ in the way that suction is created and the specific benefits they offer.

Fire cupping involves using a flame to create a vacuum inside the cup, the cup is then placed onto the skin which pulls the skin up into the cup. Suction cupping, on the other hand, uses a pump or a hand-held suction device to create suction on the skin.

Our Fire Cupping Back Treatment.

Traditional fire cupping is the original form of cupping therapy.

This experience helps with muscle recovery, improves circulation

and promotes relaxation. The application involves a back massage

to warm the tissues before experiencing a mixture of traditional fire

cupping techniques. This treatment helps improve circulation,

increases the lymphatic system, enhances overall well-being

and allows the body to heal and relax. 

Fire cupping can be used anywhere on the body and is especially beneficial 

in decreasing inflammation after an injury.

Benefits of Fire Cupping:

  • Increases blood flow - the suction created by fire cupping helps to increase blood flow to the area, which can help promote healing and reduce pain and inflammation.

  • Relieves muscle tension - fire cupping can help relieve muscle tension and knots, particularly in the back and neck, which can help improve the range of motion and reduce pain.

  • Detoxification - fire cupping is believed to help draw out toxins and waste products from the body, which can help improve overall health and well-being.

  • Promotes relaxation - fire cupping can have a calming effect on the body and can help reduce stress and anxiety.


Our Suction Cupping Treatment.

Our suction cupping and sports massage combines both suction

cupping and sports massage techniques which are used to break

down muscular adhesions, improve range of movement,

release muscular tension, improve recovery time and enhance

overall well-being.

Benefits of Suction Cupping:

  • Pain relief - suction cupping can help relieve pain in various parts of

       the body, including the back, shoulders, and neck.

  • Improved circulation - the suction created by suction cupping helps to increase blood flow and oxygen to the area, which can help promote healing and reduce inflammation.

  • Relaxation - suction cupping can help promote relaxation and reduce stress and anxiety.

  • Enhance skin health - suction cupping can help improve the appearance and health of the skin by increasing blood flow and promoting lymphatic drainage.


It's important to note that both techniques should only be performed by trained professionals and with proper precautions to avoid injury or adverse effects. Additionally, cupping may not be appropriate for everyone, and it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before trying cupping therapy.

Please note:

Cupping therapy can leave dark bruise-like marks after the treatment. This is normal and will fade within 14 days. Cupping can make you feel drowsy, dehydrated, dizzy, and nauseous, and increase urination. 

After treatment, it is advised to drink plenty of water and get fresh air. Avoid alcohol, drugs and spicy food.
