Myofascial cupping massage is a modern twist on ancient cupping techniques. It is a form of myofascial release where the cup can be moved while the suction of the skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin, muscle and fascia. The benefits are:
- Increased range of motion by passively stretching the tissue
- An increase in nutrient rich blood supply and heat to the area being treated
- Increased fluid movement to the tissue assisting in recovery
- Decrease in scar tissue
- Reduction in muscle trigger points
- Reduction in fascial adhesions
- Rehydration of the fascia
- Reduction in muscle firing causing muscle RELAXATION
- Decrease in nervous system firing causing FULL BODY RELAXATION
- Relief of pain!
Most manual massage therapy techniques involve pushing into the body causing a positive pressure change whereas myofascial cupping massage is unique because it uses negative pressure by pulling the tissue to release adhesions.
Oil is applied during the treatment in order to allow easy movement of the cups along the skin, making myofascial cupping massage different from typical myofascial release treatments where no oil is used. This makes cupping a great addition to your regular massage treatments!
Myofascial cupping massage can be used throughout the body; in fact the only areas that cannot be cupped are areas where there is a concentration of superficial veins such as the inside of the elbows, backs of the knees and the front of the neck.
Persons who may benefit the most from cupping are those with chronic pain, fascial restrictions such as iliotibial band syndrome, scar tissue from old injuries or surgeries and athletes. Cupping is for anybody and can be used on its own or easily incorporated into your next massage treatment!

"I would highly recommend Hannah if you want to get Myofascial Cupping done, she knows what she is doing and does a great job in releasing those sore muscles.
I went in for a bad headache a couple weeks ago, the first time I went in I was in a lot of pain, she was able to release most of it. I ended up having to get a second treatment later the same week because the headache would still not go away, the second time did the charm. ( keep in mind I was in alot of pain and I needed the second treatment, might be different for others ) She was able to release the remaining of the tension, and headache went away the following day. She is now my go to girl for any tension release and headaches. Thank you Hannah! 😊😊😊" - Melissa
