CUPPING & IASTM TOOLS
What is cupping?
Cups are placed on the skin to create suction in order to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation and activate lymphatic drainage. Cupping therapy dates back to ancient Egypt, Asia and Middle East
Cupping brings fresh blood to the area, improves circulation and is widely used to treat muscle and joint pain, digestive problems and release toxins. Cupping is also used to reduce stress and anxiety improving sleep!
What are IASTM tools?
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilisation, IASTM Tools are stainless steel tools that we use to mobilise the soft tissues. Agitated structures can be felt through the tools. We scan the condition of the tissue by stroking the skin with the tools, we can then feel where blockages and tension are present that need to be treated. By stroking the skin with the tools, we can not only detect superficial adhesions, but also irregularities that are located deep underneath the skin and within the fascia. A very useful treatment for anyone who struggles with tight fascia and tension deep within the muscles.
