Although our main objective is to provide Hijama / Cupping services, we have added an extra element that will help speed up or address some of the issues you may have. Our popular Cupping and Mixed Massage service is a 60 minute session. This usually will cover one area of pain and if time permits we can attempt to work on another area.
We aim to resolve all your needs within one session, but sometimes you may require a few more, depending on your issue and how long it has been present.

Hijama / CuppinG
Hijama Cupping works by creating a negative pressure in the applied area, thus relieving pain and pressure.
Cupping Therapy rids the body of harmful pathogens by drawing out the excess blood lying dormant underneath the skin. Research has shown considerable pathological differences in the healthy blood in the veins and the stagnant blood underneath the skin.
The Graston Technique is a type of manual therapy which is a for of soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilisation (aka IASTM). This approach is to massage/scrape the skin gently using a special instrument.
Please see this article about the benefits of this type of therapy and the evidences to back it.
Let your sore and painful spots feel the pressure that slowly turns into pleasure after our therapeutic percussive gun massage. It’s perfect to relax your muscles and get rid of pain effectively.
