Myofascial cupping is a soft tissue therapy that encourages healing by creating a negative pressure or suction on the skin using plastic/silicone cups. The suction draws blood to the area and is thought to relieve muscle tension, improve circulation and reduce inflammation. Cupping is widely used by athletes to reduce trigger points and tension from over training.
IASTM is an option to resolve pain and tightness in the body. IASTM instruments make it easier to detect and treat fascial dysfunction. Using a tool focuses the force through an area smaller than your finger with less friction which allows a more efficient treatment. The goal is to trigger inflammatory healing response. This will stimulate the production of new collagen and proper, functional, pain-free healing.
