Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping, also known as myofascial decompression, is a manual approach in that it prioritizes the health of the superficial neurology in painful movement patterns.

Cups made of plastic, silicone or glass are placed on the skin, causing suction, drawing the tissue into the cup. The suction mechanism distracts and helps separate layers of fascia and increases blood flow to the structures in that area.

Nerves that have become hypoxic (lacking fresh blood flow) have a lowered noxious threshold making everyday movements painful or uncomfortable.

Benefits of myofascial cupping include pain relief, reduction in tightness, increased range of motion and increased blood flow.

Myofascial cupping can be used in massage therapy, chiropractic care and acupuncture
