Can cupping massage offer benefits to athletes? The answer is, YES!
Cupping has proven to be a highly effective treatment for the athletic population.
Cupping can be used for passive recovery as well as active treatments.
Passive Recovery: Passive cupping enhances the effects of different types of stretching.
Active Treatment: Cupping with movement can reduce pain or assist in retraining a movement pattern.
Athletic clients have healthy skin, optimal for cupping, and are susceptible to repetitive use injuries which respond well to myofascial cupping.
Myofascial cupping lifts the skin, fascia and muscle apart creating more space for tissue mobility.
This also helps in breaking down small adhesions and aids in the healing process by drawing fluids and healing molecules into the area.
