Cupping/ Dry Needling

Alternative Therapies

Cupping

Cupping is a soft tissue therapy which uses a cup applied to skin to create a vacuum effect gently lifting the underlying soft tissue.

Moving the cups in a gliding motion over the skin releases tight, sore muscles, trigger points and knots. The result is a reduction in pain and increased blood flow to the treated area.

Dry needling

Dry needling uses small acupuncture needles to inactivate trigger points and provide pain relief. Dry needling is described as non-painful by most patients and produces a small cramping sensation when the trigger point is released.
