Myofascial Cupping Therapy
Cupping is an ancient method of causing local congestion, a partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin, using a suction pump to draw up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localised healing takes place.
Cupping therapy may leave a circular mark on the body which lasts for about 4 – 10 days depending on the condition. The mark is a very useful diagnostic tool, the darker the mark, the more stagnation there is in the muscles.
Cupping massage can also act as a ‘hoover’ allowing the tissue to be lifted upwards and changing the pressure on underlying tissues, such as skin, fat, nerves and fascia to help restore movement.
Cupping Therapy Promotes:
- Improved blood circulation
- Blood detoxification
