Cupping in Calgary

October 4, 2018

Cupping is a myofascial release technique that is used to relieve tension and promote circulation in the body. Sterile rubber, plastic, or glass cups are used to create a negative pressure that lifts the skin off of the underlying tissue, promoting relaxation and adhesion repair. Our massage therapists Jasmine Fleming, Jessica Schiewe, and Carmen Mandel all perform different versions of cupping, but all accomplish the same thing – the promotion of tissue repair and increased blood flow.

Cupping helps:

  • Relieve tension in muscles and fascia
  • Reduce adhesions and restrictions caused by injury or scar tissue
  • Reduce edema and swelling
  • Increase circulation and tissue repair

Our team of physiotherapists and chiropractors also perform cupping to help loosen fascia during their treatments. To book a cupping session specifically, call or book online and ask to see Jasmine Fleming, Jessica Schiewe, or Carmen Mandel.
