Dry cupping therapy
DRY CUPPING THERAPY
A myofascial cupping treatment uses a combination of massage strokes and negative pressure to lift, separate, and stretch underlying soft tissues. Cupping is typically applied on the neck, shoulders, back, sacrum, hip, abdomen, thigh, calves, and upper arms.
Areas of musculoskeletal tension or congestion are located using massage techniques, and cups may be applied on an affected area and moved over the surface in a gliding motion, or possibly put on a fascial adhesion or trigger point for a short time to reduce or eliminate it.
Myofascial cupping uses cups made of glass or plastic; some have soft squeezable bulbs at one end and some can be attached to a machine or manual pump that creates the suction.
What are the benefits of dry cupping therapy?
Myofascial cupping can help treat soft tissue conditions and musculoskeletal tension, pain, and common sporting injuries. It can also create relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.
WHAT ABOUT BRUISING?
Cupping procedures may leave light to dark red marks on the skin that disappear in 5 to 10 days.
How long are the sessions, and how much does it cost?
A 30-minute session is $35.00, or you can purchase 10 sessions for $200.00 (savings of $150)
