Fire Cupping (Dry Hijama)
Supplemental add-on to any oil massage for 90mins and over
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine that uses special cups to create suction on the skin. This technique can be used to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and to improve general health and well-being.
As a type of deep-tissue massage, negative pressure created inside the cups either through heat or suction, is applied to the skin to create a sort of vacuum, stimulating blood flow to the area by lifting and stretching the deeper layers of fascia. This in turn relaxes the muscles and removes any energy blockages. This massage works well for treating symptoms of flu, shortness of breath, bronchitis, neck/shoulder pain, back pain, arm complaints, headache, sports injuries and stress-related muscle complaints.
The material of the cups I use are glass, along with a flame to create the heated vacuum. This service be added to any massage (excluding pregnancy massage) with a supplemental fee of 12 euros.
