Fire Cupping is an ancient form of therapy dating back thousands of years. This method is performed by using fire to create suction inside glass cups and then placed on the patient's body. The skin gets lifted from the myofascial and as blood rushes to fill the empty space, it brings in fresh nutrients and oxygen along the way. It increases blood circulation, releases muscle tension and promotes cell repair. The glass cups can be used statically or dynamically across the service area.
During this treatment, the acupuncturist will perform a brief assessment on the first visit (approx. 10-15min) to target your needs and afterwards follow through with a treatment that combines : fire cupping, acupuncture and massage techniques. Every treatment plan is individualized and based on your comfort level and goals. Fire cupping might look or sound scary at first but it's not as painful as it looks and it can even be quite relaxing!
