MYOFASCIAL CUPPING


Myofascial cupping is a soft tissue therapy that involves an application of cups on the skin. These cups can vary in size and how they work is they create a suction to the underlying tissues, such-as the fascia, muscles and blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. As of this myofascial cupping can help relieve musculoskeletal aches and discomfort, from acute to chronic. While also improving your range of movement in your muscles and joints, with also increasing your circulation off nutrient rich blood around the body and promotion of lymphatic drainage.

What to expect


Initially, the vacuum application of the cup pulls blood into an area. This leads to the affected tissue becoming saturated with fresh blood. This saturation can often leave a circular mark. However, this usually starts to disappear after a day or so and happens to a lesser extent on repeated treatments.

Due to the vacuum effect, the soft tissue often experiences micro-trauma and separation between the tissue layers. The body responds to this micro-trauma by stimulating an inflammatory response, which is the natural process of healing. During this stage, the body releases chemicals such as white blood cells to initiate healing.

Finally, the stretch that is produced in the soft tissue and fascia leads to a relaxation effect within the muscle, which results in improved range of motion and performance.

•Muscle pain and tension,
•Reduced joint movement,
