Fire Cupping & Myofascial Release
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy, whereby a sterile glass cup is placed on the skin and either heat or suction is applied to gently lift the skin and superficial muscles up to encourage circulation and blood flow. .
The effects are like an intense, mini massage which really helps the circulation and tones the skin. This simple treatment can reduce stretchmarks, release some tight muscles and stimulates the lymphatic system flushing wastes from your body.
We often use this treatment for our international athletes and serving forces to help in recovery and to prepare and maintain muscle function.
Guasha is a traditional Chinese healing method in which a smooth-edged tool glides across the skin to improve circulation and break up stagnation-induced retention.
A variety of tools are used in clinic ranging from jade stone to Rockblades.
Moxibustion involves burning moxa, a cone or stick made of ground mugwort leaves, on or near your body's meridians and acupuncture points. The resulting heat helps stimulate acupuncture points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body.
We have a variety of Moxa in clinic, and depending on the condition presented the practitioner will choose the best version of the herb to be used.
Additionally we have one of the few specialist Moxa machines in the UK.
