The Myofascial Cupping Technique provides profound benefits, particularly with assisting the body in maintaining Range of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace.
By reducing fascial adhesions while encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue, Myofascial Cupping can assist in reducing the incidence of injury and maintaining functional soft tissue.
Your therapist will conduct an initial consultation and may perform some preliminary testing. The therapist will then outline the treatment plan which will incorporate various remedial and relaxation techniques along with sliding and stationary cupping. Following a cupping treatment it is common to experience light to dark circles on the skin that will disappear within a week. Sometimes itchiness can be experienced over large areas where dynamic cupping has occured if there has been a significant movement of toxins from the deeper layers.
This style of treatment helps loosen muscle tissues, releases toxins from the muscles and gets blood and oxygen circulating properly. It’s important to drink plenty of water after a treatment to help eliminate toxins from the body.
