The Myofascial Cupping Technique™, introduced by David Sheehan in 2002, employs negatively pressurised cups gliding over the body with the aid of massage cream. Unlike traditional cupping, it does not involve marking the skin, and it should be performed at a client-friendly pressure level. Unlike compression-based massage techniques, the Myofascial Cupping Technique™ stands out by "lifting and separating" soft tissue through negative pressure. This unique approach enhances blood flow to the tissue, providing valuable nutrients, while gently stretching the underlying soft tissue.
