What is Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is an ancient healing technique that uses suction to draw blood to or away from specific areas of your body, essentially decompressing myofascial tissue. Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. Fascia is designed to stretch as you move, but when damaged it can thicken, dehydrate and tighten, causing limitations in mobility and painful knots in the muscle.

Cupping works by using a cup to create negative pressure or a suctioning effect on the surface of the skin. The suction force lifts the muscle fibers, increases blood flow into the treated area, which encourages tissue repair and healing at a cellular level.

When combined with traditional Massage Therapy techniques, cupping can be a very effective approach to releasing chronic fascial restrictions within the body.
