Cupping & Guasha

In this modality, the therapist uses specialized instruments to break up adhesions and myofascial restriction--where the tissue is bound together due to injury, scar tissue, or chronic muscle tightness. Tools include cupping, fascia blaster TM, or instruments made from surgical steel, bone, or porcelain. It is an effective technique for reducing scar tissue after surgery, easing acute inflammation, and providing long-lasting pain relief for bound-up muscles and fascia.

Benefits of tool-assisted myofascial release:

  • Relieve chronic and acute pain due to scar tissue from injury
  • Treat fascial adhesions caused by postural issues
  • Release trapped nerves and ease muscle spasms
  • Address long-term musculoskeletal misalignment issues
  • Rehabilitate after strains, sprains, tears, and breaks
  • Rehabilitate after neuromuscular injury
  • Alleviate issues related to fibromyalgia
  • Increase mobility and range of motion
  • Build new and healthy patterns for muscle holding and firing
  • Improve neuromuscular efficiency
  • Improve blood flow/muscle oxygenation
