Myofascial Cupping

(deep pressure, trigger point therapy)

This treatment can also be added during the Sports & Remedial treatment at an added extra cost of £10

Myofascial Cupping (MC) is a unique treatment that uses suction to lift tissue as the cup is moved to decompress underlying tissue. The cups come in various sizes depending on the treatment area needed. Four theories exist on how MC produces changes to soft tissue mobility:

  1. The stimulation of fibroblast activation within the connective tissue to permit optimal retention of water;
  2. The disruption of excessive collagen cross linkages (ie. scar tissue);
  3. The thixotropic-like nature of connective tissue which is described by the Rolfing technique as something that it is capable of changing its state (ie. dense thickened, to a more fluid form); and
  4. Activation of mechanoreceptors which is stimulated by the application of external force that causes the nervous system to respond.

How Myofascial Cupping Works

It creates a negative (tension) pressure which:

  • Passively stretches tissue resulting in increased ROM
  • Increases blood supply/heat to area treated
  • Increases fluid movement which assists in recovery (ie. decreased edema)
  • Increases nutrient-rich blood supply to injured area
