    Cupping in an ancient form of therapy that has been used in eastern medicine for thousands of years. This is the  type of therapy is where the practitioner puts a special cups on your skin and applies either heat or suction to create a vacuum to increase circulation, stretch the fascia, and remove toxins from that area. At Synergy Myofasical Release & Rehab we use “dry”method in conjunction with other manual therapy techniques  to help decompress the fascia and help relieve release myofascial trigger point pain. These actions accelerate the healing process and is a great deep-tissue therapy. I know it looks extreme, but it is painless and we have seen some great results.
