Cupping Therapy is one of our newest therapies, in addition to many treatments and rehabilitation plans at Namix based in Northwich.
Derived from ancient Chinese medicine techniques, Cupping places plastic cups over areas of tightness and creates a negative pressure using suction. The suction of the cups mobilises rigid soft tissue, stretching it from underlying structures and loosening areas of adhesions and restrictions.
A variety of people can benefit from cupping therapy, from elite athletes to office workers.
It is very popular with several famous faces, with Michael Phelps using it for recovery during the Olympic Games. Hollywood A-Listers: Jennifer Anniston, Justin Bieber and Gwyneth Paltrow also using Cupping Therapy.
It can be integrated into your treatment plan as part of our Injury Assessments and Treatment Sessions, or as a stand-alone treatment to aid recovery from workouts, ease daily aches and pains, or even as an effective stress relief tool!
Whether you are a top-level athlete or not, maintaining a high-performance standard in competition, work, or training is key to achieving your personal goals.
However, your muscles can become tired when put under excess strain, and this is where sports injuries can occur.
To prevent this, having a Cupping Therapy session regularly can help prevent injury, maintain your active lifestyle, and improve your performance!
