Berwick Myotherapy - Cupping & Dry Needling
What Is Cupping?
Cupping is a modality that we use to specifically mobilise the Myofascial system.During this treatment, muscles which are lined with a connective tissue called fascia are targeted in order to alleviate pain and discomfort. If this fascia is tight, it limits the functionality of the muscles that lie below the surrounding area. In this situation the muscles are unable to contract and relax optimally, so we look at mobilising the connective tissue with a vacuum pump and cups.
How Does It Work?
During a treatment a vacuum pump is used to draw the soft tissue perpendicular to the skin, which in turn provides a tensile force to the soft tissue system. These cups can be left in one site for a prolonged period or moved along the skin, to promote flexibility in the tissue and alleviate a range of physical ailments.
