Cupping treats soft tissue conditions, musculoskeletal tension, pain, and sports injuries. Cupping is done by placing special cups on your skin for 5-20 minutes to create suction on the skin, muscles, and fascia. Cupping also helps with pain, inflammation, blood flow, and relaxation.

Cupping therapy is performed with or without movement to create both an internal and external gliding of tissues. This allows the drainage of the lymphatic system allowing stagnate blood to clear. Cupping can be an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain conditions.

Rock Tape

How does kinesiology tape work? Kinesiology tape, more commonly known as rock tape, works by recoiling slightly after it's applied to the skin. This recoil gently lifts the skin allowing it to create microscopic space between your skin and the tissues underneath it.

Rock tape is used to treat injuries in conjunction with other treatments like manual or physical therapy. It can also be used to add extra support to muscles or joints that need it without compromising movement. Rock tape can be a great addition to traditional treatment.
