Osteopathy in Chelsea

Susannah Makram on Cupping Therapy at Cosmetech Chelsea Private Clinic

The use of Cupping Therapy is documented in the history of most great cultures and civilisations of the past with the earliest available records revealing extensive use by the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures.

Cupping is much like the inverse of massage – rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. This is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.

Cupping therapy is very versatile and can be modified to achieve a variety of techniques ranging from subtle lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release.

Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin.


Different types of cupping are selected based on clients’ treatment goals. 

These include fire cupping, TCM cupping therapy etc. THESE TYPES of cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness, depending upon the degree of suction created by the vacuum and the level of internal stagnation.

When circulation is sluggish or compromised in an injured or diseased area of the body, the cells receive insufficient oxygen, and there can be a local build-up of waste products. This why it’s such a popular treatment technique at Cosmetech Chelsea Private Clinic.

Cellulite is a combination of fat, toxic cellular wastes and fluids that form a gel-like material. Some of the science: Poor micro-circulation causes damage and a build-up of waste products.


What is cupping used to help with?

Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

For fluid retention (weight loss) and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.

Cupping massage at Cosmetech Chelsea Private Clinic is a treatment technique used as part of aesthetic (and non-aesthetic) osteopathy.

Detox Cupping Massage 

  • Targets Cellulite
  • Tones and tightens

Normal cupping can leave marks because little papers are set on fire under glass cups to create suction as they sit on your back. While there’s suction with cupping massage it doesn’t leave a mark because the cups continue to move.


If your goal is natural body sculpting with MLD then try cupping massage for cellulite and water retention.
