Cupping, Scrapping or Functional Tapping at Aktiv Health Co.
About this class
Myofascial decompression or cup therapy is a form of myofascial release. Cups are placed on the skin using suction to decompress adhesions for improved flow of blood and nutrient exchange. In a Western medical perspective, the cups are used for the following: mechanical connective tissue change, trigger point release, improving myofascial lines of movement, releasing scar adhesions and scar tissue, increase blood flow and ultimately pain relief and return to function. Bruising is often a common side affect. Scraping is a form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively address scar tissue and fascial restrictions resulting in improved patient outcomes. The technique uses stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation. Bruising is often a common side affect. Functional Taping is a form of athletic taping to restrict the motion of injured joint, compress soft tissues to reduce swelling, support anatomical structure involved in the injury, protect the injured joint from re-injury, and protect the injured part while the injured part is in the healing process.
