Myofascial Vacuum Cupping

 

Provide appropriate sport and remedial massage in a sport & exercise context

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 are
  • 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
