Myofascial Cupping is a modified version of the ancient Eastern style cupping which differs by specifically targeting the Musculo-Skeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners. It also uses plastic cups and vacuum suction rather than glass cups and a naked flame to create suction.
Myofascial Cupping is a simple treatment that gives Impressive Results, its effects are subtle, yet very powerful. Cupping helps release rigid soft tissue through negative pressure and suction, increasing the blood flow to the skin and muscles. It may also help eliminate excess toxins in the tissue & fluid your body may be retaining. Cupping is not painful, in fact the sensation is often characterized as ‘deep warmth’ and ‘tingling’ and can be very relaxing. Varied techniques using stationary and moving cupping are used depending on the area and presenting issue.
Stationary Cupping – This is when a cup is applied to a specific problem area and left there for up to 10 minutes.
Moving Cupping – This is when a cup is adhered to the body, and then moved around without breaking the seal. This method feels similar to a deep tissue massage.
Please Note: There may be some discolouration or circular marking of the skin after cupping, this is quite normal, and will disappear after a few days to a week.
