Modern Cupping Therapy for Soft Tissue Release

Cupping Therapy is a traditional technique where local suction is created on the skin to mobilise blood flow in order to promote healing. With the knowledge of anatomy and physiology, we are now unleashing the true nature of the suctioning effect. It is a mobilisation technique to soft tissue and connective tissue under the skin, also know as fascia.

The body’s fasical network has now been identified as a source of muscle and joint pain. Cupping which induces negative pressure through skin has been shown to influence circulation and lymphatic flow, reduce nociceptive input and release tension within the connective tissues.

Modern Cupping Therapy (MCT) works extremely well with physiotherapists and bodyworkers such as massage therapists who specialise in musculoskeletal problems and connective tissue tightness. Unlike traditional cupping therapy which relies heavily on skills of temperature control and glass manipulation, MCT is easy to apply and highly effective. The unique feature of allowing movement during the application provides excellent results for sports injuries and exercise rehabilitation.
