Fascia is the body’s connective tissue that provides a framework to help support and protect individual muscle groups, organs, and the entire body as a unit. If the fascia is tight then the functionality of the muscles that lie below is limited.

Fascia is an all-encompassing network which, when unhealthy, has a negative domino effect throughout the body. Unaddressed compensatory patterns can form unless the natural spring of the fascia is regained. The best way to avoid the domino effect is to keep your fascia healthy so that you at a lower risk of developing dysfunctional compensatory patterns.

Cupping helps to stretch the connective tissue (using a vacuum pump and cups) which results in muscles being able to contract and relax optimally.
