Cupping: cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localised healing takes place.

Dry needle: Dry needling (also known as trigger point needling) is a scientifically proven form of treatment to treat trigger points. Very thin needles are inserted into the taut bands (knot areas) to bring relief to the area. When the needle is inserted, a local twitch response is experienced very often. After a dry needling treatment, the area in the muscle which has been treated feels much softer and relaxed and the person will feel more loose. This type of treatment should not be confused with Acupuncture. Dry needling is treating trigger points whereas Acupuncture is based onancient Chinese medicine working on the meridians of the body.
