Myofascial Cupping Therapy

What is Myofascial Cupping?

Myofascial Cupping Therapy (MCT) is an ancient eastern healing art that is gaining popularity in the western world due to its many benefits. During a treatment, suction cups are used to create a negative pressure on superficial tissues to draw nutrient rich blood which promotes healing.


  • Healing tissues by bringing increased circulation and oxygen to enhance collagen production and tissue repair (great for scar tissue)
  • Creates a negative pressure which passively stretches myofascial tissue, resulting in increased range of motion
  • Assists in reduction of localized inflammation and helps with recovery 
  • Breaks up adhesions in the fascial and musculoskeletal tissues
  • Clearing the pores and removing surface toxins while pulling out old stagnate blood and toxins from the deep myofascial tissues
  • Increases fluid movement which helps with detoxification of the lymphatic system, and organ systems
  • Relieves muscle spasms that often cause pain
  • Relaxes the sympathetic nervous system to aid stress reduction and healing
  • Stimulates the blood flow to rejuvenate skin, aiding in cellulite and edema reduction and skin toning/strengthening
