Myofascial Cupping & Release

Myofascial Cupping & Release

Myofascial Cupping uses small suction cups to decompress underlying tissue and promote blood flow to areas in the body that may be blocked. The technique involves using positive pressure to alter tissue adhesion by specifically targeting the musculo-skeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional eastern practitioners.

 

Myofascial Cupping has been recognized by many as the most effective deep tissue massage available.

 

Benefits:

  • Stimulates relaxation response (parasympathetic response)

  • Increases oxygenation and detoxification of blood

  • Promotes a feeling of lightness and relief of pressure

  • Detoxifies metabolic debris in muscle tissue, fascia, and skin

  • Increases range of motion, breaks up adhesions, and promotes healing in scar tissue and chronic injury sites

  • Increases lymphatic drainage & promotes circulation

  • Aids in poor circulation, sciatica, arthritis, poor circulation

  • And more.

How does it work?

By creating a Negative Pressure (tensional) above the surface of the tissues, we decrease the atmospheric pressure allowing the tissue to be lifted and thus causing changes in pressure beneath the skin including the muscle and surrounding fascia. Importantly, our gliding technique creates a traditional MFR technique (push/compression effect) using the leading rim of the cup, which is then followed by a 'lifting' negative pressure over the same area (pull effect). As the cup leaves the area we once again create a push/compression effect.
