Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial Cupping is a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or suction on the skin using plastic cups of different sizes in that they pull up underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids close to the surface of the skin.

Areas of musculoskeletal tension or congestion are located using massage techniques, and cups may be 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 or eliminate it.

BENEFITS:

  • Healing tissues by bringing increased circulation and oxygen to enhance collagen production and tissue repair (great for scar tissue)
  • Creates a negative pressure which passively stretches myofascial tissue, resulting in increased range of motion
  • Assists in reduction of localized inflammation and helps with recovery 
  • Breaks up adhesions in the fascial and musculoskeletal tissues
  • Clearing the pores and removing surface toxins while pulling out old stagnate blood and toxins from the deep myofascial tissues
  • Increases fluid movement which helps with detoxification of the lymphatic system, and organ systems
  • Relieves muscle spasms that often cause pain
  • Relaxes the sympathetic nervous system to aid stress reduction and healing
  • Stimulates the blood flow to rejuvenate skin, aiding in cellulite and edema reduction and skin toning/strengthening

IS IT SAFE?

While cupping is extremely safe to use on most people, there are some contraindications that may prevent the use of cupping such as:

  • History of vascular disease such as DVT or varicose veins
  • Any bleeding, internal or external
  • Open wounds or sensitive/fragile skin
  • Young children
  • Recent operation
  • Heart problems
  • Blood thinning medications

WILL I BRUISE?

This depends on if I leave the cups on an area longer called “parking” or move them like a form of massage. The bruise colour and pattern of the marks depend on the level of stagnation in the area, and range from a bright red to dark purple, usually lasting 1-7days, sometimes longer if the person is sedentary. Cupping is not recommended if, for example, you have a special occasion approaching!

Latest Tip

Salt crystal lamps are used in Alternative Medicine because of their ability to improve health through the production and release of negative ions into the air. These negative ions are produced when a salt crystal is heated by a bulb, and help to cleanse the air of harmful particles which may provide complementary treatment for many illnesses.
