Myofacial Dry Cupping Therapy

Facilitate healing with increased blood flow

This can be used in conjunction with other alternative therapies. It takes into account the whole person and helps activate each patient’s natural healing processes as well as restoring their physical and emotional well-being.

Kinesiology Tape Application

An elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

It gently allows the free flow of blood and lymphatic fluid to cleanse and heal the inflammation without the use of medications or surgery. This special tape helps to improve circulation, support muscles, allow the internal injury to heal, and help prevent further muscle injury while still allowing motion.

Ultrasound Therapy

Promote Healing and Decrease Pain

A technique which utilises sound waves (which cause vibration) to decrease pain or improve joint function. These vibrations occur at high frequency—so high that the vibrations are undetectable to the person receiving ultrasound treatment.
