Cupping is originally part of Traditional Chinese Medicine but has seen a resurgence in Western medicine over the past few decades. Most notably it was seen on many of the swimmers and gymnasts in the Rio Olympics.
At The Balanced Rider we have been using cupping for over ten years. It is a very biomechanical treatment which aims to stretch and lengthen tight muscle tissue. In this way it promotes pain relief, increases movement and helps reduce muscle tension. It is particularly useful around the neck, shoulders and upper back.
