Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy and single treatments by Freya Sherlock, the professional cupping therapist in Cork

Effective Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy, an ancient form of alternative medicine, involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This technique is believed to promote healing by increasing blood flow, reducing muscle tension, and enhancing overall circulation. 

For effective cupping therapy, it’s crucial to consult with a trained and experienced practitioner who can properly assess your needs and apply the cups safely. 

The therapy sessions typically last between 5 to 20 minutes, during which cups may be moved around or left in place. While generally considered safe when performed correctly, it’s important for individuals to discuss any underlying health conditions with their practitioner to avoid any adverse effects.

Benefits of Cupping Therapy

Pain Relief

Many people turn to cupping therapy to alleviate chronic pain, particularly in the back, neck, and shoulders. The suction from the cups is believed to promote deep-tissue healing by increasing blood flow to the affected areas, which can reduce stiffness and improve overall mobility.

Improved Circulation

The suction effect of cupping is thought to enhance blood circulation, which helps in nourishing cells and reducing muscle tension. Improved circulation can also expedite the removal of toxins and promote cell repair, which may enhance recovery from physical exertion and injuries.


Cupping can have a therapeutic, massage-like effect that triggers the parasympathetic nervous system, leading to a deep relaxation state. This can help reduce stress, promote sleep, and improve overall well-being by lowering stress-related hormones like cortisol.

Benefits of Cupping

Cupping therapy, increasingly popular in alternative medicine, is known for its effectiveness in treating ailments by creating suction on the skin with cups. It traditionally boosts circulation, relieves pain, and detoxifies body tissues.

Although research is ongoing, studies indicate it may reduce chronic pain, particularly in the back and neck, and help with conditions like fibromyalgia. Results can vary, often depending on the cupping therapist’s skill and techniques. As with any alternative treatment, it’s advisable to consult healthcare professionals to ensure it’s suitable for individual health needs.
