Derived from a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, myofascial cupping is used to aid treatment of muscle/soft tissue aches and pains and helps to promote healing.
Whereas traditional massage uses compression and kneading of the soft tissue, the movement of the cups over the skin lifts the soft tissue, separating the fibres, stimulating repair and introducing elasticity to the soft tissue.
Cupping is particularly effective for:
- Athletes – ITB tightness causing knee pain
- People who find traditional massage too uncomfortable
- As an aid to releasing tension in the neck and shoulders
- Low back pain
