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
