Myofascial decompression cupping, also known as modern cupping, is a form of negative massage in which suction is used to release the fascial tissue beneath the skin. To address problems with the fascia, cups are strategically placed by a trained practitioner on certain acupressure points or by following the muscles and disrupted fascial patterns to create a vacuum inside the cup. The negative pressure created by the vacuum sucks skin up inside the cup, separating it from the fascial layer beneath.
The cups are then typically left in place for 1-20 minutes as directed and with caution to stimulate specific acupressure points (site cupping), following muscles or disrupted fascial patterns or are moved up and down along problem areas (moving cupping) before being removed.
