Cupping is a unique treatment that uses suction to lift tissue as the cup is moved by the therapist to decompress underlying tissue. The cups come in various sizes depending on the treatment area needed. Cupping is effective in releasing tissue tightness, improving circulation and reducing pain.
What distinguishes myofascial cupping from traditional massage and myofascial release is that it facilitates decompression vs compression of the affected tissue. This reversal of force can help to alleviate neuromyofascial impingements that can result from chronic overuse, tension patterns and scars.
