Myofascial Cupping Theory



By creating suction, & negative pressure above the surface of the tissues, we decrease the atmospheric pressure allowing the tissue to be lifted & thus causing changes in pressure beneath the skin, including the muscle and surrounding fascia. As the cup leaves the area the tissues quickly rehydrate. Cupping is very effective for improving restricted range of motion, stretching muscles and fascia with deep restrictions or scarring. This technique encourages blood flow and sedates the nervous system which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, and migraines.
