Cupping Vs. Massage: Similar Actions, Bigger Results
What is Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy?
Looking for effective Cupping Therapy in Los Angeles and West Hollywood
Neuromuscular massage techniques are clinically proven to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and improve muscle function and strength. Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy, an effective form of IASTM performed at Artisan Bodyworx, achieves these same results, making the process more manageable for the practitioner.
Cupping creates a sensation that the brain finds difficult to understand, leading the nervous system to ignore signals to and from that area. Besides distracting, cupping also decompresses myofascial and pulls metabolic waste from deeper tissues into the lymphatic and circulatory vessels, facilitating its easy elimination by the body.
Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy is an innovative approach that combines the proven techniques of Neuromuscular Massage and Cupping Therapy, a recognized form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM).
Cupping Therapy works by creating a negative pressure using suction cups, which in turn generates space between soft tissue layers. This spacing allows each layer to glide upon one another, significantly improving tissue mobility and gliding.
Simultaneously, the distinctive sensation from the suction of the cups is used as a distraction technique to reprogram neuromuscular patterning. By incorporating both active and passive movements through ranges of motion during the session, we can enhance patient results and reduce strain on the practitioner's body.
This unique blend of techniques used in our Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy not only fosters physical well-being but also encourages a holistic approach to pain management and body mobility.

Cupping Therapy for Pain Relief & Stiffness
Understanding Pain and Tighness
It's crucial to remember that chronic pain is rarely related to damaged tissue, and it's often tied to trigger points (TrPs) occurring near neuromuscular junctions. TrPs are sarcomeres that cannot relax due to factors like poor circulation or old injuries. These can irritate nociceptors, the nerve fibers responsible for perceiving pain. Understanding the referral zones for each TrP can often lead us to the root of chronic pain, thereby resolving the irritation.
Satellite Trigger Points
Pain can often be felt far from the original trigger point, a phenomenon known as satellite trigger points. Satellites occur when referral pain from a trigger point is handled over a sustained period, causing a new trigger point to develop.
The Role of Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy
Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy can effectively target these trigger points and connective tissue restriction , providing lasting pain relief. By leveraging both active and passive range of motion (ROM) techniques with specific cupping placements, we achieve meaningful results.
Conditions Treated by Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy is an instrumental therapeutic tool utilized for myofascial decompression and is a versatile treatment option that can address various physical conditions. Creating a negative pressure that improves tissue mobility and enhances neuromuscular patterning offers relief from several common complaints. NMT Cupping therapy includes neuromuscular re-education, AAROM, Lympatic facilitation, and PNF.
Chronic and Acute Pain Management
From chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and lower back pain to acute pain related to sports or work injuries, Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy provides effective pain relief. It's instrumental in managing conditions like IT band syndrome, plantar fasciitis, tennis, and golfer’s elbow, bursitis, chronic joint swelling associated with sprains/strains, shin splints, ligament sprains, muscle strains, patellar tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis.
Rehabilitation from Injuries and Surgeries
Post-surgical and traumatic scars often lead to restricted mobility and discomfort. Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy can aid healing, improving blood circulation and promoting deep tissue repair in the affected areas.
Repetitive Strain and Imbalance Relief
Repetitive strain injuries, such as trigger finger and carpal tunnel syndrome, can be effectively addressed with cupping therapy. Moreover, it aids in correcting muscle imbalances and easing myofascial pain and restrictions, contributing to overall bodily function and well-being.
Enhanced Athletic Performance
Athletes dealing with conditions like heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, and hip pain can significantly benefit from our Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy. Cupping Therapy can combines with sports massage to improve flexibility and optimizes athletic performance.
Stress and Tension Relief
Beyond physical ailments, Neuromuscular Cupping Therapy is effective for stress and tension relief. By calming the nervous system, it promotes a state of relaxation and well-being.
Cupping Therapy boosts circulation, providing fresh oxygen and nutrients to treated areas. This increased blood flow can speed injury recovery and improve overall tissue health.
At Artisan Bodyworx, we believe in a tailored therapeutic approach. We encourage you to discuss your health history and specific needs with your practitioner before beginning any new treatment regime.
