BENEFITS OF THERAPEUTIC CUPPING
Cupping pulls stagnation out of joints and tissues by creating negative pressure above the surface, allowing the tissues below to be lifted upwards, bringing congestion to the surface of the skin and increasing the space for underlying structures. The pores expand, discharging waste and toxins, which become more accessible to the blood's circulatory and lymphatic systems, where it can be easily flushed out. The fresh, revitalized blood is then available to stagnant areas.
A FEW OF CUPPING'S MANY BENEFITS:
Contracted, congested tissue structures soften quickly, creating localized expansion of tissue
Blood is drawn into areas of ischemic pain
Skin temperature raises, promoting metabolism within skin tissue
Stagnant blood, toxins and lymph nodes are allowed to drain
Vital nutrients are made available
Blood is purified by removing dead debris, increasing red and white blood cell activity, altering the body fluids' PH chemistry from acidic to alkaline or neutral
Stubborn and chronic joint conditions lessen and resolve effectively
Disorganized fascia structures can be directly re-structured to support the healing process
Myofascial Release involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion. Myofascial is comprised of the word “myo” referring to muscle and “fascia”, which refers to the collagenous web that surrounds, supports, and connects all of our muscles. When cupping therapy is applied, Myofascial Release is accomplished, stretching the thickened fascia away from the underlying structures, allowing for greater movement and healing.
Conditions that respond to
Myofacial Cupping Therapy:
Chronic pain, backache & pelvic imbalance, neck and shoulder pain/discomfort, headaches, jaw discomfort, teeth grinding/clenching, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis/golfers elbow, general discomfort and muscle spasms, trigger-point formation and pain, sports injury, plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, frozen shoulder, whiplash, post surgical and injury scarring, muscular function and postural alignment
Many athletes incorporate cupping into their training to enhance their overall performance, agility and ability to recover from their sports. It can significantly speed up the recovery time after an athlete’s hard workout, flushing out toxins before soreness sets in. Orthopedic cupping, or deep tissue cupping, rapidly removes muscle adhesions by lifting and releasing contracted and restricted muscles up and away from the underlying structures, increasing blood flow and bringing healthy nutrients to the muscle tissue.
Sports Cupping is used for:
Conditioning and maintenance to obtain and remain at optimal performance, detoxing, recovery from sporting events, therapy for athletic injuries (chronic conditions, knee injuries, sprains and strains, hip conditions, groin pain, shin splints,
hamstring injuries, I.T. band syndrome, shoulder injuries, achilles tendon inuries, low back injuries)
Orthopedic Cupping is used for:
Dissolving adhesions, normalizing the position of the soft tissue, lengthening connective tissue, hydrating the joints, releasing entrapment of peripheral nerves
