Dry Cupping…

This is an alternative technique used on muscles to help relieve tension and pain.

Dry cupping is used to apply a vertical stretch of the tissues, through the suction applied. This helps promote blood flow to the surface and to aid relaxation of tight tissues. To increase the effect further, the cup can be glided on the surface of the skin.

There is a high risk of marking of the skin or bruising.
