What is Neuromuscular Cupping?
Updated: Apr 28
Neuromuscular massage cupping is a type of massage therapy that combines two different techniques: neuromuscular therapy and cupping.
Neuromuscular therapy is a type of soft tissue manipulation that focuses on treating trigger points, also known as "knots," in the muscles. Trigger points can cause pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion, and neuromuscular therapy aims to release these points through a combination of pressure and stretching.
Cupping, on the other hand, is a technique that uses cups made of silicone to create suction on the skin. The suction helps to increase blood flow to the muscles and connective tissues, release tension, and promote relaxation.
During a neuromuscular massage cupping session, the therapist will first perform neuromuscular therapy on the client to locate and treat any trigger points. Then, they will use the cups to create suction on the affected areas, which can further release tension and increase blood flow to the area.
The cups are typically left in place for a few minutes, and the therapist may move them around to different areas of the body as needed. After the cups are removed, the therapist may perform additional massage techniques to further relax the muscles and promote healing.
Neuromuscular massage cupping can be beneficial for a variety of conditions, including muscle pain, stiffness, and tension, as well as injuries, limited range of motion, and stress.
