Cupping therapy consists of creating negative pressure, or suction using a silicone cup in a local area to create space in the body, draw out foreign objects, reduce pain, improve circulation and improve range of motion.
A special kinesiology/sports tape that provides support while allowing full range of motion. Tape is used to decrease pain, unload tissue via decompression, and provide a novel stimulus that improves body awareness.
