North Boulder Physical Therapy, Boulder, Colorado
Ever since cupping therapy, or myofascial decompression, received widespread media coverage during the 2016 Olympics, clients have come to our North Boulder Physical Therapy locations to experience its benefits. At the games, a number of swimmers used this therapy technique to treat overused muscles and even injuries. The telltale red rings of this method are what caught everyone’s attention.
So, What Is Cupping?
Despite the recent attention, cupping therapy is actually an ancient medical treatment. Localized suction is used to stimulate the soft tissues, release toxins and support circulation for blood and lymph vessels in the treated area. This can provide a range of healing benefits for chronic pain, migraines and more. At North Boulder Physical Therapy, we often use cupping to release tension and restriction in your skin and muscles.
