Cupping Therapy is being offered by our Registered Massage therapists at Core Health Care. Essentially Cupping is an age-old technique yet very effective way of decompressing myofascia (connective tissues in our muscles). Fascia in the body can be restricted due to damage from trauma/injury, scar tissue, inflammation, etc. Cupping works through generation of a vacuum by a cup on the surface of the skin. This technique releases fascial restrictions, draws fluids into the tissue assisting the body to release inflammation and therefore decrease pain.
Cupping Therapy is a very effective approach to free the fascia or connective tissue and when combined with manual release can be extremely beneficial. Treatments are most effective when performed a couple of times a week.
