BODYWORK MODALITIES

MyoFascial Cupping:

 Myofascial Cupping is a modified version of the ancient Eastern style cupping which differs by specifically targeting the Musculo-Skeletal system rather than the meridian systems used by traditional Chinese practitioners. It also uses plastic cups and vacuum suction rather than glass cups and a naked flame to create suction. A hand operated vacuum pump is used to induce a vacuum inside a cylinder sealed to the skin by the use of oil or cream. The vacuum “draws” the soft tissue perpendicular to the skin thus providing a tensile force to the soft tissue system, which can be left in one site for a prolonged period or moved along the tissue. Your therapist will palpate the skin during or at the beginning of your treatment to determine which areas may benefit from cupping. Cream, gel or Oil is then applied to the skin, before placing the cups on the body. One, two or several cups can be placed on dependent on the size of the area being worked on. These will typically be left on for up to 10 minutes depending on the client’s reaction and sensitivity. The cup can also be moved around by the therapist with the rim of the cup creating a compression pressure as well. There are varying sizes of cups used for different areas.

Cupping should be pain free however in areas of dysfunction you may experience some bruising in the area, which should disappear within several days.

The oils are absorbed through the epidermis and react with the body's chemistry in a sympathetic and gentle way. They help to release toxins, muscle tension, joint pain and increase circulation in the body. Each pair of stems can be used to a maximum of 3 times, on the same client only. As an option, you can give the stems to your client and encourage them to use them at home. Used stems can be kept in the refrigerator for more effectiveness and extended use.
