Ever wondered what those dark circles are on an athletes skin? It’s a result of myofascial dry cupping therapy.
Elite athletes and sportsperson are using this form of therapy to help them be at their physical best.
If you want to rest, repair and recover like a pro – take a read of our guide to myofascial dry cupping at MSK Sports Injury Clinic Newcastle.
What is Myofascial Dry Cupping?
Cupping has a long history in many cultures around the world. Different countries and civilisations have used different forms of cupping for thousands of years. There are different methods available but MSK Sports Injury Clinic Newcastle has the latest technology for cupping.
Recently professional sport has encouraged an increase in the popularity of cupping. Athletes are using this as a recovery tool before events.
Cupping involves the suction and lifting of your soft tissues like muscle and fascia. The cupping tool creates a vacuum which sucks the soft tissue up and draws blood into the muscle and facia within the cup. This is what can create the dark circles following treatment as the blood remains in the top layer of the skin for a few days after treatment.
The process of cupping has a similar effect to a deep tissue massage because it helps to penetrate deep layers of our soft tissue. Due to tissue movement and increased circulation to the area, it helps to start an inflammatory response which helps to heal our body. Cupping helps to separate layers of soft tissue to improve mobility of soft tissue which can lead to improved physical performance and day to day comfort.
Treatment with cupping not only has a positive effect on the body but it is relaxing for the mind. Often pain, tension and injury can cause us to feel negative – cupping therapy is a great way to relax.

What is Involved?
Once you have had a discussion with our therapist, which will identify your problem areas. Cups will be applied to your skin and a suction tool helps to suck and raise the soft tissue. The cups can be left in the same position for the duration of the treatment and there are also certain techniques which will allow the cups to be moved whilst having suction applied.
You will feel some tension as the cups are applied over the areas but it shouldn’t be painful. The sensation should almost feel like a stretch of the tissue. Following the completion of the treatment, the stretch sensation will relax after
How Will You Feel After Treatment?
