If you are looking for cupping therapy in Auckland, The Sanctuary on Richmond can provide you with the right type of service. Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, breaking down scar tissue, myofascial release, detoxification, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of tool that goes well in conjunction with deep-tissue, sports, or remedial type massages. At The Sanctuary on Richmond our cups are made of silicone and plastic which can be moved on the body to release tension and chronic pain. We generally use cupping for sports injuries, and other types of injuries where scar tissue needs to be broken down. It is a great tool for releasing facial tissue on a deep level; Although it can be painful the results are worth the discomfort. It also helps stimulate blood flow to the inflicted or injured area to help with repair and lessen inflammation.
