Myofascial Cupping Technique™ – Level 1

What is Myofascial Cupping?
The Myofascial Cupping technique provides profound benefits for your clients, particularly with assisting the body in maintaining Range Of Motion, eliminating Myofascial Trigger Points and reducing restrictive and sometimes painful fascial adhesions commonly found from repetitive movement originating from sports and the workplace. By reducing fascial adhesions, while encouraging optimal hydration levels of soft tissue, Myofascial Cupping can assist in reducing the incidence of injury and maintaining functional soft tissue.

What’s covered?
● Current evidence-based research supporting the benefits associated with Myofascial Cupping.
● Use of equipment, infection control and contra-indications.
● Anatomy of the fascia and its inter-relationship with the musculo-skeletal system.
● After thorough demonstrations and discussion, students will practice exact area specific sequences including correct direction and amount of negative pressure to be applied.
● Specific clinical applications including the treatment for Myofascial Trigger Points, Plantar

How does it work?
By creating a Negative Pressure (tensional) above the surface of the tissues, we decrease the atmospheric pressure allowing the tissue to be lifted and thus causing changes in pressure beneath the skin including the muscle and surrounding fascia. Importantly, our gliding technique creates a traditional MFR technique (push/compression effect) using the leading rim of the cup, which is then followed by a ‘lifting’ negative pressure over the same area (pull effect). As the cup leaves the area we once again create a push/compression effect.

Who uses Myofascial Cupping?
● Massage & Remedial therapists
● Myotherapists
● Physiotherapists
● Sport medicine professionals

Why you should attend this workshop?
● Learn to lift and separate soft tissue, rather than compression techniques which can be painful and ineffective.
● Change from the ‘thumb busting’ day in day out approach to your day in the clinic.
● Treat conditions all more effectively incorporating Negative Pressure which you cannot achieve using traditional Myofascial Release techniques.
● Create change both on a musculoskeletal and on a subtle level (dampens sympathetic division of autonomic nervous system).
● Produce painless results similar to deep tissue work.
● Offer your clients an alternative to standard massage treatments.
