Dry Cupping

Dry Cupping Bath

Cupping is a technique used in conjunction with massage therapy, acupuncture and dry needling. Normally used when conventional massage is not working alone.

A traditional alternative therapy that has been used for centuries to promote healing and relaxation, in recent years, it has gained popularity in the wellness community.

At Hybrid, sterile plastic cups are used to create a vacuum that pulls the tissue up and therefore stops the oxygen to the area, which allows the practice to work.


Dry Cupping helps with pain and restore order in the body by unblocking disturbances in the circulation, energy channels and pathways of the body

Cupping can be used by:

  • Being placed directly over acupuncture points.

  • Being placed directly over trigger points.

  • Being moved along acupuncture channels.

Cupping Bath

Cupping pulls blood to a region to stimulate healing. It is effective at stretching tight fascia and muscles. Cupping helps the tissue develop new blood flow and stimulates the healing process. It's generally painless, and many versions of Cupping can be found in different cultures such as; Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The suction created by the cups helps to increase blood flow, loosen muscles, and release toxins from the body., which provides the following benefits:

  • Increasing circulation which increases oxygenation and nutrient levels within tissue

  • Increases the removal of chemical irritants within muscle and fascia and the removal of stagnant blood

  • Micro trauma which leads to sterile inflammation and a renewed healing process.

  • Produces a stretch reflex in fascia and connective tissue, which increases mobility at the joint.

  • Works well in conjunction with other therapy such as sports and remedial massage, joint mobilisations and Dry Needling /medical acupuncture.
