If you have more complex issues of tension or muscle aches and pains that were possibly caused by an injury or repetitive strain, a Myofascial Cupping Massage is the right service for you.
You can book a Myofascial Cupping Massage for 45 minutes to 2 hours in length however the cupping itself may only be utilized for portions of that time. Your treatment will begin with a short but in-depth assessment. This is your opportunity to point out what area(s) you’d like to work on during your time, as well as identify any special requests or concerns you may have.
Your therapist will start with a standard Therapeutic Massage. Cupping is often applied to the shoulders, neck, back, sacrum, hips, abdomen, thighs, calves, or upper arms – depending on your compliant or injury. Your therapist will determine the areas to apply the cups based on what was inferred from your verbal assessment and what is ascertained by palpating your soft tissue. They will apply the cups to areas of adhesion, leaving them static for a short amount of time. They may also manipulate the cups over the areas to assist with the breaking down the adhesion. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat as needed.
Your therapist may use silicone cups, pump cups or glass cups. This is a matter of preference for each RMT but all are beneficial for the same reasons.
