Myofascial Cupping Massage

Edmonton | Sherwood Park

Myofascial Cupping addresses the deeper myofascial tissues and helps to kick-starts blood-flow to the muscle tissue, which greatly enhances natural healing. The practice involves the therapist placing or moving pressurized cups on your skin. The cups can be made of silicon, plastic, or glass. The practitioner will apply the cup to your body incorporating pressure with either suction, pumping, or heating methods depending on the style of cup.

What to expect during your Myofascial Cupping Massage Appointment:

If you have general aches and pains, repetitive strain, or complex issues caused by an injury, a Myofascial Cupping Massage is the right service for you.

Your treatment will begin with a short assessment which may include ROM testing. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You will then be asked to undress to your personal comfort level and lie under the linens on the table.

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 complaint 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 breaking down the adhesion. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.

You may feel some discomfort or tenderness during a deep tissue massage, especially if you have areas of tension or tightness in your muscles. It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.

After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.

Other things you should know about your Myofascial Cupping Massage Appointment:

Your therapist may use silicone cups, pump cups, or glass cups. This is a matter of preference for each practitioner but all are beneficial for the same reasons.

If you’re planning on getting a Myofascial Cupping Massage, here are some important things to keep in mind:

  1. Arrive early: It’s a good idea to arrive a few minutes early to your appointment. This will give you time to fill out any necessary paperwork and get settled in before your treatment begins.
  2. Avoid heavy meals: A full stomach can make it harder for you to relax and may interfere with the treatment. However, an empty stomach can leave you light headed. Try to eat a light meal an hour or two before your appointment.
  3. Drink plenty of water: It’s important to stay hydrated before and after your treatment. Drinking plenty of water can help flush out any toxins released and help prevent soreness.
  4. Dress appropriately: Depending on the type of treatment you have scheduled, you may or may not need to undress to some extent. It’s best to wear loose fitting or “athletic” clothing that you are able to move freely in. Your therapist will instruct you on what should be removed to facilitate the best possible treatment. Always undress to your personal comfort level.
  5. Communicate with your therapist: During your appointment, make sure to keep an open dialogue regarding any discomfort or areas of tension you are experiencing. This will help them make adjustments as needed to ensure that you are getting the most benefit from your treatment.
  6. Take it easy after your appointment: It is important to give your body time to rest and recover after treatment. Avoid intense physical activity or exercise immediately after your treatment and allow your body time to relax and recover.
  7. Follow any post-treatment instructions: Your therapist may provide you with specific instructions or stretches to do after the treatment to help with recovery. It is important to follow these instructions to get the greatest overall benefit.
