Cupping therapy is an ancient practice that has several benefits. At Ossum Welness, we treat musculoskeletal injuries and thus, our cupping will be targeted to those structures.
Cupping is the application of silicone, glass or plastic cups with suction to create a negative pressure on the skin’s surface. The suction lifts the skin and underlying tissues to improve blood flow, increase lymphatic drainage, draws out toxins and release myofascial adhesions and trigger points.
There are many indications when to use cupping, but also many contraindications. Megan will conduct a thorough assessment prior to utilizing cupping therapy to ensure it is the right treatment for you.
