Myofascial Cupping Therapy

Myofascial Cupping Therapy is a form of remedial massage treatment combining and using Myofascial Release Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy.

The Myofascial Cupping Therapy is unlike all other massage techniques, that uses compression. It is unique in that it ‘lifts and separates’ soft tissue, known as negative or tensional pressure. This in turn can increase nutrient rich blood supply to the tissue. While giving a gentle passive stretch to the underlying soft tissue.

How does it work?

The myofascial cups are silicone cups that are place on the skin, creating a slight pressurised seal to draw up superficial muscle.  As the Myofascial cups are stimulating the circulation of the blood and breaking up adhesion,  they create a pathway for the toxins to be drawn out of the the body through the lymphatic system.

Myofascial Cupping Therapy are widely used in athletic training, physical therapy, and remedial massage therapy clinics.

It is used specifically to decompress adhesion’s and scar tissue, relax muscles in spasm, decrease trigger point pain, and decrease tissue changes and inflammation following trauma. Cumulative treatments increase muscle endurance, circulation, increase lymphatic drainage and enhances overall ability to recover from workouts and strenuous activity.
