MYOFASCIAL CUPPING TECHNIQUE – NOW AVAILABLE AT CASEY CENTRAL OSTEOPATHY!
Cupping Therapy is an old Chinese Therapy where a cup is applied the skin. Negative pressure is then applied within the cup via a suction pump which lightly draws the skin and superficial muscles to the surface. It is very useful in rejuvenating the body, helps stretch tight muscles and fascia, activates the lymphatic system, promotes circulation and very effective for tissue repair. Studies out there have proven that cupping has had good analgesic and anti inflammatory effects on individuals who suffer from Osteoarthritis.
While the outcome of Cupping may leave you with round red marks on your body, it is NOT painful. This discolouration is due to blood being drawn to the surface, it will generally subside within a week. It is completely normal if you experience some mild post treatment soreness or fatigue after a treatment, however this is no different from how you would after a normal Osteopathic consult. Our Osteopaths – Dr Sonya Galenson and Dr Jack McElligott will incorporate myofascial cupping along with Osteopathic techniques as part of your wholistic treatment.
