Myofascial Decompression / Cup Therapy
Myofascial Decompression Techniques / Cup Therapy is a set of modern day manual therapy treatment techniques, which evolved out of addressing sports and orthopedic injuries that did not respond well to traditional manual therapy. By integrating Eastern Medicine tools with Western evidence based physiologic principles and movement patterns, Myofascial Decompression Techniques / Cup Therapy works in the decompression of adhesions, reducing inhibition of fluids, and increasing nutrient exchange.
The goal of Myofascial Decompression / Cup Therapy is to introduce a negative pressure tool in a systematic movement based approach to treat fascial restrictions, fascial tension and scar tissue. By increasing efficiency of motion through fascial flexibility and neuromuscular re-education, Myofascial Decompression / Cup Therapy is able to change the neuro-pathway, reducing areas of tightness that are pulling on the kinetic chain.
Myofascial Decompression / Cup Therapy assists with the following:
- Breaking up scar tissue build up
- Breaking up trigger points and adhesions
- Decreasing pain
- Improving performance
Used by: Natalie Coughlin (x12 Olympic Medalist), Nathan Adrian (x3 Olympic gold Medalist) and many other athletes and individuals suffering from injury.
