Cupping is a safe and effective technique that
increases blood flow and oxygen to an injured area.
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.
