Le Spa Massage Academy – Myofascial & Traditional Cupping Therapies

What is traditional cupping therapy?

There are many types of cupping, but flame cupping is the most traditional cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine and has been around for thousands of years. Cupping is based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and a poor energy flow through your body. To reduce or prevent those health issues, cupping practitioners apply cups, typically glass, to your skin to create a pressure that sucks you skin inward. The pressure that the cups create draws blood to the affected area, increasing your blood flow overall.

What is Myofascial Cupping?

Myofascial cupping is different from other traditional cupping therapy. Cups are applied using gliding motion on the stiff and fixed area, called “trigger point” and sometimes stationery. This technique releases fascial restrictions and targets the musculoskeletal systems.
