Myofascial Cupping Massage
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine through a simple method of pulling “stuck,” stagnant, and congealed blood and fluids from different areas and releasing it. Plastic cups are placed on the skin and a vacuum is created through suction, drawing up the underlying tissues (fascia).
As we age, our body begins to break down and there is loss of muscle and adhesions (fibrous bands that form between tissues) form in the fascia which can cause a decrease in blood flow. As we age, we often move less and decrease our physical activity so our blood supply to our tissues decreases and fascia gets knotted and scarred up further because of limited movement and a repeated cycle begins. Cupping can be very effective in breaking down adhesions in the tissues (fascia) to create range of motion, increase circulation and release painful, tight muscles.
Cupping in SE Calgary is becoming increasingly popular because of how effective it is. We combine our cupping therapy with a therapeutic massage which promises to release tight fascia and muscles through an induced relaxation effect. This treatment is not suitable for children under 10 years of age only because fascia in children is not fully developed. This treatment is suitable for pregnant ladies.
