Cupping for Musculoskeletal Injuries
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It has become a very popular treatment to relief muscle pain and muscle tightness. The advantage of cupping over regular massage is that you get a nice stretch on the fascia which is the taut covering over the muscles. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Cupping is a wonderful option to improve fascial mobility and decrease muscle pain.

Cupping does not hurt, in fact it helps loosen up the soft tissue and loosen the muscles, it increases the blood flow through tight muscles and works great with improving tissue mobiility.
