Myofascial Vacuum Cupping

Myofascial Vacuum Cupping

Simply known as “Suction Cupping”, this therapy technique combines massage movements with a negative pressure as opposed to the positive pressure used with standard hands-on massage techniques.  This is achieved with the use of a suction device on the skin.

A cup is positioned to the treated area where a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue up into the cup which then creates the desired suction effect and in turn the following:

* Increases blood and lymphatic circulation to the area
* Relaxes muscle tissue and support
* Draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body
* Releases pain causing factors
* Breaks down scar tissue and contusions

Therefore, this is ideal for treating tight and painful areas.
