Myofascial cupping is a modified version of the common practice of cupping therapy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The adaptation of this ancient technique is used to promote health and healing by loosening soft tissues, adhesions, connective tissues, scarring and improving lymphatic flow and circulation.
This therapy uses silicone or plastic cups with or without a vacuum mechanism to create suction on the surface of the body. These cups may then be moved over the skin by gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup. The cup(s) may also be left for a short time on the surface of the skin to promote deep soft tissue release and joint mobilization. All of our therapists are fully certified in myofascial cupping.
