Did you know that adding Deep Tissue Cupping to your massage session can give you some surprisingly good relief from pain and an increased opportunity for more remarkable healing? It’s not your average Cupping therapy – this technique uses clinically proven neuromuscular techniques to give you some serious results. Want to know more? Let’s dive in!
De-facilitated Muscle Fiber
Trigger Points are pieces of muscle fiber locked into a contracted position. When muscle fibers are “locked up,” it is called “de-facilitation” because they cannot function correctly.
De-facilitated muscle fiber can happen because of injury, tension, or chronic inflammation. If locked down for long enough, Trigger Points can cause significant pain. These are the “knots” you feel during a massage.
These Trigger Points cause even more tension within the muscle. Because of this tension, circulation moves more slowly. Metabolic waste (what your cells produce when functioning) gets stuck in these areas and irritates the muscles’ nerves.
These irritated nerves can send pain signals within the local muscle tissue or far away, making pain confusing and convincingly severe in seemingly unrelated areas.
Cupping Overrides the Pain Signal
Cupping works beautifully for Trigger Points because it can override that pain signal by distracting the brain and moving the circulation to stop the irritation.
Pulls on Muscle and Fascia
In addition to the “push” massage techniques, Cupping pulls on the tissue, making your session deeper without discomfort! This dynamic makes your session much more effective!
Did you know that chronic tension and scar tissue from old injuries can make your blood move more slowly, leading to increased pain? Even when you’re body is done healing, blood flow can be so limited that the waste product your cells create gets stuck and irritates your nerves!
Cupping can pull fresh blood to these areas and encourage these wastes to move out and be processed, eliminating one of the most significant contributors to chronic pain!
Distracts the Brain
Our brains and muscles can get stuck in a pain “loop” long after everything has healed. This pain is an attempt to protect the area, but it is no longer needed.
Cupping provides a strange sensation that the brain doesn’t know how to interpret. Instead, the brain eventually ignores it, overriding that pain signal and allowing the area to “re-wire” itself.
The time is over for a cookie-cutter massage. If you are looking for dependable bodywork that solves problems, you’ve come to the right place.
