Here is our pick for the top venues offering Cupping in Gold Coast .
Have you heard about cupping in Perth? Worldwide, it's not new but we are only just starting to understand its many health benefits here in the western world.
Did you realise that it can treat a whole range of problems, from arthritis, fibromyalgia, anxiety, allergies, migraines, even varicose veins? Pretty amazing, right?
Of course, cupping is closely aligned with those other ancient healing methods, from China and the Middle East, and it really does work.
There are actually two different cupping methods - wet and dry. But dry cupping seems to be the most commonly used here in Perth.
Cupping is often carried out during a massage, delivering a more holistic treatment. A professional cupping practitioner uses heat to warm the 'cup' so that when it is placed on the skin, it creates a vacuum.
The vacuum draws out toxins from the body, promoting improved overall health. It also acts as a deep tissue massage to relieve aches and pains, and relax the muscles.
In Perth, you can access cupping treatments from some massage therapists, Chinese medicine practitioners, acupuncturists and other holistic health clinics.
We would always recommend using a recognised professional for any type of treatment, and that's what you'll find right here at BookWell.
The fact that such ancient healing methods are still in use goes a long way towards confirming their authenticity. And there's a good reason why they are described as 'complementary' medicines.
Whilst few cupping practitioners would claim to be able to cure major diseases, the treatment can certainly help relieve the symptoms, and promote improved overall health.
Here at BookWell, we couldn't wait to try it out! True, you do walk away with a few red circles on your skin, but these are generally covered by your clothes. And they disappear in a day or two.
