Cupping Therapy

What is Cupping Therapy

When it’s time to release the restrictions that build up in your fascia tissue, Cupping could be a tool that is right for you. At the Athletic Room we do not do the traditional cupping that uses fire and glass cups but instead we specialize in the method that has been seen on TV during the Olympics or used in Collegiate and Professional training rooms. Cupping uses the pressure of suction to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward as opposed to a massage where you apply pressure downward on the area.

 

Cupping assists the body to remove pain and toxins from the muscles while allowing the fascia to glide easier over the area. The improved biomechanical results can be quite impressive and result in improved flexibility, strength, range of motion, while relieving localized pain.

Why Cupping Therapy

Cupping has been used all over the world to treat health conditions for thousands of years. Thanks to Red marks seen on Celebrities and Elite Athletes Cupping has made a comeback to the mainstream in Western countries. Cupping is still thought of as an Eastern Medicine technique but many Doctors now consider cupping as a complementary treatment and a modality to be tried under certain conditions.
