myofascial cupping therapy
One of our favourite natural and ancient remedies is cupping therapy, also called myofascial cupping. We swear by the benefits of this form of alternative medicine and really encourage you to give it a go.
It involves the application of special cups to select areas of your body, creating suction against your skin through heat or manual pressure. The cups are then either left on your skin for a few minutes, or are moved in quick and rhythmic strokes over your muscle groups. This will depend on the treatment plan that your RMT will determine that you would benefit the most from.
Cupping has the ability to help with fascial restrictions, muscle pain, restricted range of motion, detoxification, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and wellbeing. It can be seen as a type of deep-tissue massage.
