Check out all cupping reviews.
I've had lower back pain for 3 weeks, I thought I'd try acupuncture for the first time, whilst it was relaxing I'm not sure what it's supposed to actually do, the cupping felt strange I'm not sure if it has helped with the blood circulation, the deep tissue massage seemed to hit the spot and he did find the muscle which was the source of my back pain, I walked out of there feeling quite good this morning however? I can hardly move and I'm aching more than usual I'm sure it will wear off throughout the day! The venue is basic but clean and the gentleman was very pleasant and seemed to know what he was doing.
I went in thinking I wanted just a deep tissue massage but once Nasila took time to understand my needs, her caring and consultative approach resulted in a combination therapy doing the trick. In the end I got to try a few different methods eg acupuncture, massage. Nasila talked me through the whole thing and completely reassured me. Thank you!
The cupping therapist did not explain anything to me, she just told me to take my top off and lie down. There was no music or anything relaxing. When she came back in, she didnt warn me what she was going to do at all and being my first time I was expecting her to go through it with me. She started putting cups on with saying a word and it caught me by suprise, I didnt know what to expect. Judging by other people that have had cupping, and other photos, mine does not look the same. She covered the entirety of my back in random spots and not in a straight line like i have seen on other. Im not complaining about price because £12 was a bargain and my back feels better but there could have been more ambience and a little more communication.
Along with the cupping I received a massage & 30min free in the Sauna. Seriously the best massage I've ever had. Lina knew exactly what she was doing and what areas to focus on and I left feeling so much better! The cupping was great too, as was the sauna. I'm so glad I've found this place as it's exactly what I've been looking for for ages. Thanks Lina!
Unfortunately I can't comment on the Angel Qi Health & Beauty as when I was 2 minutes away from my appointment I was told that they were busy and I had to go to the Highbury & Islington one the next day which wasn't all too great. What I can say about the one in Highbury is that I am very impressed and happy with the treatment I received, as well as the free short massage I was given after. The lady who did it definitely knew what she was doing and I felt really relaxed after.
I found the male therapist very knowledgeable. The treatment was great particularly the deep tissue massage. The treatment rooms are a little flimsy so you can hear any conversations going on in the shop and next door but it wasn't too off putting and the therapist had no problem asking the guy next door to stop talking on his mobile phone. All in all a great experience and value for money. I'll definitely be going back.
Combination of the acupuncture, cupping and massage did a great job at relaxing my sore shoulders. Massage was great. Good value - would definitely go back and recommend.
Amazing treatment!! Very clean place, helpful staff. I recommend this place and I will definitely go back:) As I arrived early, they accommodated me to an early appointment:)
I called up before my treatment to ask if she could squeeze me in for a half hour massage before hand. The woman was very accommodating. She's extremely knowledgable, she's not just doing it for relaxation, she works your knots out and works on your entire body, along with stretches after if you want. Definitely worth going back for! I can't wait for my next session!
This was the first time I visited - overall I was satisfied and would go back. I went just for cupping and they asked me several times if I would have acupuncture or massage alongside - which I can't afford right now. To be honest I can't relaly blame them for wanting to upsell. However, personally I would prefer this as a suggestion after the treatment rather than beforehand which comes off as more pushy. The therapist was good and the cupping went without incident. I find it to be pretty helpful for back pain. Thanks guys!
