RockPods – Silicone Cupping
A non-invasive alternative to traditional myofascial cupping therapy
What is Cupping?
RockPods are a non-invasive technique and is an alternative to traditional myofascial cupping therapy. These pods are used to loosen and lift the connective tissue in the body, and they increase the blood flow to the skin and muscles whilst encouraging lymphatic drainage. This assists in stimulating the body’s natural healing processes and can help in the treatment of chronic pain, alleviating tension and calming the nervous system.
Whilst the RockPods are in place the patient and the therapist can perform certain tissue mobilisations. This therapist assisted manipulation can help with precision mapping (connecting the brain to body and vica-versa), sensory-muscle retraining and can help improve postural alignment awareness.
What are the benefits?
- Decreased pain
- Promotion of healing
- Improved blood flow
- Improved range of motion
- Mobilisation and loosening of connective tissues
- Reduces nerve sensitivity
The RockPods are applied to the skin by the therapist and they can be manipulated by the therapist moving them, but also by the patient gliding their tissue underneath causing a mobilisation of their connective tissue. The therapist can create areas of suction which in turn creates areas of decompression within the tissue release areas of tension.
Cupping can leave red marks on your skin after treatment due to the compression / decompression and suction of the tissue. These areas are not painful and techniques should give you the sensation of a deep tissue massage.

Sport & Exercise Scientist
Since studying Sport and Exercise Science and graduating from the University of Hertfordshire in 2015, I have continued to study and have furthered my skills with qualifications in Sports Rehabilitation Injuries, Personal Training, mat Pilates and have experience with GP Exercise Referrals and Special Population Groups.
I am a member of BASES, REPs and CIMSPA, accrediting me to be a Senior Health Practitioner.
Over the years, I have developed a passion and take pride in alleviating pain and enabling patients to recover and rehabilitate fully from injuries. I aim to identify the underlying postural causes of any dysfunction or symptom, and use a wide range of techniques that are adapted and specific to the needs of the individual client.
My approach is to create a functional, pain free, healthy lifestyle for all clients and my aim is to help them achieve their goals.
