Vacuum Cupping as a therapy intervention

Vacuum Cupping, also know as Myofascial Decompression can be useful in the treatment of chronic overuse injuries such as bursitis, tendinitis, tendinosis, and myofascial pain syndromes. It can also be effective with post-op scarring and related pain.

So how does vacuum cupping work? Good question. This technique uses negative pressure to decompress adhesions, where the connective tissue is stuck and allow better flow for the exchange of nutrients. The pressure will increase blood flow to the area to help with healing process.

When it comes to massage therapy, cupping can most often allow for an area to release quicker then traditional manual massage. So results can happen fast! Great news.

Vacuum Cupping can help with the following:

  • Break down scar tissue
  • Break down trigger points and adhesions
  • Decrease pain
  • Improve performance
  • Decrease post-op/post-injury healing time
