Myofascial Cupping is a modern therapy derived from Ancient Egyptian and Chinese Therapeutic techniques.
By using suction and negative pressure we are able to lift and release rigid soft & connective tissue, loosen adhesions and bring fresh blood with oxygen & nutrients to areas being treated.
The lifting action of the cups treat the fascia (muscle knots) to return a muscle to its full length and elasticity, returning power.
Myofascial Cupping differs from other cupping techniques as the cups are generally moved in a continuous motion and are not usually left in one particular point for any length of time. The gliding of the cups loosens and allows the fascia to reset to the ideal position allowing increased circulation and water absorption.
Myofascial cupping can, in some cases, results in slight discolouration of the skin. This is not a painful bruise, but may last a few hours or up to a couple of days.
Myofascial cupping is an effective therapy for clients of all ages to enjoy greater mobility and well-being.
Some benefits of Cupping include:
- Lift and stretch soft tissue to separate fascial restrictions
- Increase range of movement and flexibility in joints
- Move stagnations of lactic acid and metabolic waste
- Relieve deep muscular issues and reduce muscle spasms
- Soften tight muscles
- Separate layers of connective tissue to bring hydration and blood flow
- Stimulate blood flow
