Myofascial Cupping

What is Myofascial Cupping

Cupping Therapy is one of the oldest forms of medical treatment available. Originating in Eastern China and Africa, this method of treatment is chosen to relieve pain and tension in the body using the application and suction pressure of plastic or glass cups.

Areas of musculoskeletal tension or congestion are located using massage techniques, cups are then applied on an affected area and moved over the surface in a gliding motion, or possibly put on a fascial adhesion or trigger point for a short time to reduce and eliminate it.

The cups can also be placed on specific points of the body to release localised acute and chronic tension and help to increase blood flow to the area.

What Should you Expect?

A myofascial cupping treatment uses a combination of massage strokes and negative pressure to lift, separate, and stretch underlying soft tissues. Cupping is typically applied on the neck, shoulders, back, thigh, calves, and upper arms.

Our patients can often feel a light pinching sensation under the cups, followed by a negative or ‘lifting’ sensation around the area being treated. Following treatment patients often feel much lighter and more relaxed.

Myofascial Cupping is used by our Treatment Room Sports Therapists, against a background of comprehensive clinical research and scientific evidence. All our practitioners are registered with the Sports Massage Association, and have completed several Myofascial Cupping and Decompression courses, guaranteeing high quality treatment.
