Myofascial Cupping & Needling

Myofascial Cupping

Cupping refers to an Ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by suctioning out air) so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. The cup can remain stationary or can be moved. Cupping can be applied to certain acupressure points, as well as to regions of the body that are affected by pain and fascial/muscle tightness.

Some of the therapeutic benefits include : sedating the nervous system; passively stretches the muscles; draws blood from deep to superficial nourishing the muscle and skin. After injury, it can aid in the repair phase by preventing scarring (fibrosis) of the local area; correctly align collagen; assist in reduction of localized inflammation and aids recovery by increasing nutrient-rich blood supply to the injured area.

A certain amount of marking is expected from both fixed position cupping and with movement of the cups. This is only temporary.

Myofascial Dry Needling Treatment

Great for the treatment of trigger point, myofascial pain, injury and chronic muscular dysfunction. It can be used to facilitate mobilization and manipulation of the underlying joints and ultimately, exercise rehabilitation. Based on Western principles, not to be confused with the traditional acupuncture, Dry Needling can be used in most cases with equal or better effect than other manual therapies. Following dry needling there may be some residual local pain and tenderness, however, often there is little or no post treatment side effects. Heat, stretching and moving the muscles treated can assist reducing any post treatment discomfort if experienced. Dry Needling is incorporated within the massage treatment.
