Cupping is an age-old technique used in traditional Chinese medicine to stimulate acupuncture points or larger areas of the body. Cupping is often practised alongside acupuncture but can also be used as a treatment in its own right.
Sports massage is great for pre and post event, or to simply keep your body moving.

Excellent Practice.

I have seen the Clinical Lead here for a shoulder issue and been thoroughly happy with the treatment provided. Dr McCarthy was very thorough in examination and gave exercises that were helpful, yet still within my capabilities at the time. Excellent Service.
