Ada's unique Inside-Out treatment strategies combine Chinese Medicinal principles and Western Aesthetic & Wellbeing techniques. Designed based on Ada's unique Medi-Meridian treatment strategies combining Western therapy and Chinese Medical principles, using a variety of techniques to stimulate the Meridian networks.

Gua sha is used to break down stagnated tension and fluids accumulated within the body, kick start increased blood circulation for nutrients and oxygen to enter and flushing waste through the lymphatic system.

Flow cupping and static cupping intensifies blood flow to deliver collagen and elastin within the skin to firm and tighten over time.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is a form of treatment in Chinese Medicine which involves placing cups on the skin on certain parts of the body to create a suction. This works to increase blood flow to your fascia, muscles, stimulate lymphatic system and create reflexive reactions along the Chinese Meridian network. It increases oxygen and guides the immune cells to the desired area to enhance Qi flow to encourage healing in that chosen area. It works by increasing blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed, which can in turn relieve muscle tension, which then improves overall blood flow and promotes cell repair.

A balanced Qi is essential for good health. Cupping works by “opening” the pathways in the body through which Qi flows and a free flow of Qi is essential in supporting the function of the body’s tissues and organs.

Cupping essentially utilises similar principles to Gua Sha: creating broken blood vessels just beneath the skin, it breaks up adhesions that are blocking the flow of Qi and nutrients to different parts of the body. These red marks that form will then be transported through our waste system, arousing new activities for healing at the same time.

This is a popular treatment as it produces very quick reliefs to the body. By relieving tension and promoting relaxation, which is great for people with busy and intense lifestyles. It has a positive effect on regulating the immune system and controlling inflammatory processes. Whilst treating muscle tension, cellulite and water retention.

Cupping is associated with leaving red marks on the skin, this is caused by the intense suction that increases circulation by dilating capillaries, causing them to rupture causing bruises. However there are many different ways to cup that don't have to leave red marks. By combining methods of lymphatic drainage and the Chinese Meridian network, our clinic therapist can perform no mark cupping at our clinics.
