Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Work Using Cupping

Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Work Using Cupping

When negative pressure Cupping Therapy is combined with range of motion exercises,  both Myofascial Release 
and Trigger Point work can be accomplished.

Myofascial Release involves applying sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.  Myofascial is comprised of the word “myo” referring to muscle and “fascia”, which refers to the collagenous web that surrounds, supports, and connects all of our muscles.

Trigger Point work, also known as Neuromuscular Therapy – helps to alleviate acute and chronic pain conditions, as well as to deactivate “trigger points”, which are tight, contracted and hyper-irritable areas in the muscles that refer pain and tingling to other parts of the body. By applying concentrated pressure to release these trigger points, normal muscle movement is restored and the pain spasm cycle is disrupted.

When Cupping Therapy is applied to tight rotator cuff muscles, Myofascial Release is accomplished, stretching the thickened fascia away from the underlying structures, allowing for greater shoulder movement.

Cupping Therapy creates a negative pressure suction over the twisted bundles of the Trigger Points, breaking up the adhesions, painlessly and without the discomfort of force.

I was referred to Morgan Massage by my physical therapist about a year and a half ago following a car accident. I also have decreased neck mobility due to arthritis. For several years prior I had been using a significant amount of prescription medication to manage frequent migraine headaches. After seeing Morgan for several months at regular intervals, the frequency and severity of my headaches decreased, and I have cut my medication use by over half. He has also helped me manage several other issues, such as a recent low back injury. Morgan is very professional and sincerely motivated to help his clients. I know three other people who have used his services, and every single one has been very impressed. I highly recommend him.
