Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping is a type of massage therapy that uses suction cups to create pressure on the skin & underlying muscles. The goal of this therapy is to increase blood flow & reduce tension in the areas being treated. Cupping can be used to treat a variety of ailments, including muscle pain, joint pain, inflammation, stress, headaches, & more.

The process begins with applying specialized oils or creams to the area being treated before placing the cups on the skin. The cups are then moved around by hand or using a device called an “anchor” which creates gentle suction while allowing movement between adjacent points without causing discomfort. This motion helps break up adhesions that have developed in the connective tissue, allowing for better movement & circulation.

Myofascial Cupping can help with:

  • Poor Circulation, Fluid Retention.
  • Pre/Post Op conditions.
  • Reduce/Heal Scar Tissue faster.
  • Used on burn victim scaring.
  • Separate layers of connective tissue to bring hydration & stimulate blood flow to body tissue.
  • Soften muscle tightness/pain.
  • Increase range of motion in the body.
  • Reducing restrictive & sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement from exercise/work.
  • Safe for pregnant women.
  • Treat Conditions such as arthritis, Plantar fasciitis, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Fibromyalgia, Multiple sclerosis & MORE.

The treatment is usually done in a series of sessions, depending on the severity of the issue being treated. Each session typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. After the treatment is complete, it’s recommended to drink plenty of water to flush out toxins that may have been released during the massage, as well as apply heat or ice treatment if necessary.

Myofascial cupping therapy can be a great addition to any regular massage routine.
