Myofascial Dry Cupping
Cupping has been popular in Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures going back thousands of years, but increasing numbers of people worldwide have been adopting it. Dry cupping is an ancient therapy that can leave multiple circular discolorations or 'cupping marks' on the skin.
During dry cupping, suction is applied to the skin to create a vacuum for several minutes and can be combined with massage, acupuncture, or other alternative therapies. The cups can be left in a static position or moved along the skin to help ease adhered tissues. This vacuum lift helps to decompress the area, resulting in a reduction in muscle tension and associated pain.
