Myofascial cupping is a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or suction on the skin using plastic or glass cups that pull up underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids close to the surface of the skin. It 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.
Used as treatment for:
- Sporting injuries [especially ITB Syndrome; plantar fasciitis]
- Neck and back pain [including TMJ dysfunction; sciatica]
