Physiotherapy is treatment to restore, maintain, and make the most of a patient’s mobility, function, and well-being. Physiotherapy helps through physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and health and fitness. Physiotherapists get you involved in your own recovery.
Physiotherapists study the science of movement. They learn how to pinpoint an injury’s root causes.
When should I go see a physiotherapist?
Think about getting physiotherapy if you have an injury, or chronic pain that affects how you function everyday. A doctor may refer you to physiotherapy after surgery such as a hip replacement, or an event such as a heart attack or stroke.
What problems do physiotherapists treat?
Physiotherapists focus on both prevention and rehabilitation. Treatment can be for problems caused by injury, disease or disability. Here are some examples:
Acupuncture is one modality that is part of a very rich and collective fundamental medical system, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Acupuncture is a practice built on a foundation of more than 2,500 years of Chinese medical practitioners.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cupping is used worldwide. Its usage dates back to as far as 1,550 B.C. There are different forms of cupping; the most common are dry, wet, and fire cupping. At Resilient Acupuncture we use exclusively fire cupping. Cups are applied onto the skin and a suction is created, pulling the skin up. It is meant to increase blood flow to certain areas to the body which results in decreased pain and increased circulation.
Instead of turning to traditional medications or painkillers, you may be curious about trying alternative treatments. These include acupuncture, Tui Na Massage and even cupping.
Cupping really went mainstream after the 2016 Summer Olympics. During the Olympics, swimmer Michael Phelps had purple suction marks from cupping on his back. Phelps swears by cupping as a way to deal with soreness and pain during training and competition. People also use it for day to day pains like working at a desk for long hours, asthmas and sciatica.
The marks from cupping may look intimidating at first, but they are actually just the result of suction on your skin. It creates a myofascial release in the tissues and most people find it very pleasant and relaxing. You can think of this as a reverse massage where we can create space in between the muscles for oxygen to circulate. This releases stagnation and increases blood flow, something we all need a lot more of in our lives. It is safe for people of all ages and ailments.
With fire cupping a suction is created using a small flame that is briefly held in the cup to remove the oxygen. This creates a vacuum. The fire never touches anything other than the cup and it completely safe. There are some great you tube videos to help ease your fear. We will have one posted here for you shortly.
Cupping is beneficial for individuals with injuries, pain, and inflammation, as well as stress, anxiety, and other emotional issues. It is even used for facial rejuvenation and cellulite reduction.
The following conditions may also benefit from cupping therapy:
Congestion, the common cold, asthma, and allergies
Practitioners believe that the resulting heat helps stimulate these points and improves the flow of qi (energy) in your body. According to traditional Chinese medicine practices, this increased qi circulation can help with a range of health issues, from chronic pain to digestive troubles.
