Relax and Soothe Your Lower Back Pain and More with
Our Cupping Services in Launceston, TAS
Cupping is Great When Paired with Other Services Offered at
Cupping is great in conjunction with remedial massage. The cupping vessel is placed gently on the skin and with suction applied, lifts the skin, connective tissues and muscle. Cupping pulls blood to the region to stimulate the bodies healing response, effectively stretching and loosening tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps increase blood flow and causes anti-inflammatory chemical releases in the body, sedating the nervous system.
Clients enjoy cupping for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Cups may be moved around (sliding) with the help of oils or cream and can be left in place. They may remain on your body briefly or for longer amounts of time. Each treatment is unique to you on that day, with the first treatment being rather gentle to see how the clients body responds.
Cupping causes the skin to temporarily turn red, blue or purple, especially if there is an injury under the area that is cupped. The skin discoloration can last anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks. Known as a cupping mark, it is not a bruise and rarely painful. Once the marks have cleared, the procedure can be repeated until the condition or ailment is resolved.
