The Benefits of Myo-Facial Cupping

Myo-facial cupping is a soft tissue therapy that involves applying plastic cups, decompressing and creating a vacuum that lifts the top layer of skin away from the fascia and connective tissue and muscles, blood and other fluids.

This method of cupping stimulates the lymphatic system to remove toxins, lactic acid and stagnant blood from injuries through the lympatic system and dispersed through the kidneys and liver.

Cupping can help soften the fascia and break down scar tissue it can also breakdown adhesions, increase the circulation, reduce inflammation, edema, and improve range of motion and performance. I use this modality along with deep tissue massage and Hot Stone Therapy.
