Cupping/Myofacial Decompression

Myofascial Decompression (cupping) is based on assessing and correcting movement inefficiencies. Cupping massage therapy mimics manual deep tissue and myofascial release, but instead of pressing down on the tissue, it is pulled up.

This technique can relieve common muscle fatigue, myofascial pain, chronic aches and pains, and arthritic joints.

Patient Benefits

  • Increases space between the tissues allowing for better fluid and nutrient exchange
  • Increases blood flow
  • Improves scar mobility
  • Decreases trigger points
  • Releases connective tissue adhesions within the tissues
  • Speeds up recovery times
  • Decreases pain
  • Improves movement quality

 

The main side effect after cupping is a circle-shaped bruise or redness which can last 3-7 days.
