What is Myofascial Cupping therapy?
Myofascial Cupping therapy (Myocupping) is a form of massage, done with traditional Chinese cups. It creates negative pressure which passively stretches the soft tissue which increases the range of motion, blood supply and heat to the treated area. Cupping also increases the fluid movement which assists in the recovery (decreased swelling or edema), and increases nutrient rich blood supply to the affected area.
What conditions can it treat?
Myocupping creates a response from the Central Nervous System to reduce muscle tension and also creates a response from the Autonomic Nervous System which lowers respiration, blood pressure, lowers muscle tension, visceral activity, heart rate, and increases blood flow to the muscles.
