Cupping and Blading
Cupping is used to decompress muscles and connective tissue, promote blood flow, enhance circulation and increase the body's own healing process.
Bladding is therapy using an instrument to assist in soft tissue mobilization and the breakdown of fascial adhesions, restrictions and scar tissue. Treatment reduces adhered fibres, restores range of motion and eliminates pain. It is shown to greatly improve injured areas with high amounts of scar tissue.
