MYOFASCIAL DRY CUPPING THERAPY
Myofascial Dry Cupping Therapy is an alternative modality which dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures.
During Myofascial Dry Cupping, cups are placed over several areas of the body. This creates a vacuum which lifts the soft tissue and creates and upward stretch. In doing so, bloow flow is increased to the area and a stretch effect is induced which results in reduced muscle tension and pain. The application of cups can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
Muscle pain and tension
Back and sciatic pain
Stress and anxiety
Myofascial Dry Cupping works well in conjunction with sports and deep tissue massage as the upward stretch effect from the cups works synergistically with the downward pressure of manual massage.
