Cupping

Cupping is a type of myofascial release in which the clinician uses the suction created from a silicone cup or a plastic cup which is applied to the skin. The cup may remain static over the treatment area, or the clinician may move the cup along the muscle or fascial distribution of the skin. This technique is used to improve blood flow, decrease pain, reduce inflammation, provide tissue mobilization and promote relaxation of the underlying structures.

What to Expect

The clinician will apply a silicone or plastic cup to the individual’s skin with the appropriate amount of suction applied. The clinician may leave the cup in place for 30 to 60 seconds or may move the cup along the skin in the plane of muscle or fascia. Residual redness after suction is expected but does not always occur. This treatment should not be painful but should help to improve tissue mobility.
