Stressed? Injured? Or simply feel tight? Myofascial Cupping is an amazing technique used by Raw Therapies massage therapists to promote nutrient-rich blood to areas, providing increased circulation to stretch muscle tissue. Glass cups use heat where as plastic cups utilise a suction pump to create a vacuum effect drawing the skin, fascia and muscles into to cup. The myofascial cups are position over tight muscle and fascia and used in a variety of different techniques. Predominantly static or dragging provide the most benefits. Beware, cupping can leave suction marks which do fade over the coming days.
5 top benefits include:
- Increased circulation
- Increased joint range of motion
- Reduced muscle tension
- Increase lymphatic drainage (detoxification)
- Increase connective tissue mobility
