Myofascial Cupping Edmonton | Sherwood Park
History of Myofascial Cupping
Records exist of practitioners using Myofascial Cupping Massage as far back as 3000 BC. The Egyptians used it, and so did the people of Ancient Greece. In Ancient Greece, Hippocrates used cupping techniques to help decrease internal disease and structural issues. Since then, it has been mentioned in various historical texts and is now widely used by athletes and non-athletes alike.
Nowadays, there is a trend of professional athletes who are using the practice as part of their regular physical conditioning. In the 2016 Rio Olympics, 3 different medal winners attributed their wins in part to Myofascial Cupping Massage. Gymnast Alex Naddour, and swimmers Natalie Coughlin and Michael Phelps were all receiving the therapy during the games. Afterwards, Naddour stated that cupping keeps him healthy, and that “it’s been better than any money I’ve spent on anything else.”
