Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy (FICT)
Functional Integrated Cupping Therapy, or Cupping, is based on the ancient history and application of old Chinese medicine. Cupping is a type of tool used in therapy as a natural treatment method, and can be used as an adjunct therapy to various medical and non-medical professionals. The aim of this treatment is to prevent injury and create a faster healing and recovery time for injuries already sustained.
Opposite to massage, Cupping expels air into the cup creating a negative pressure and separating the layers of tissues. When the tissues separate, water is absorbed into dehydrated tissues and waste product is eliminated. There is also a renewed blood flow to rejuvenate the tissues. This method manually removes the energy blockage in ways that acupuncture needles, massage and other treatment methods cannot do.
FICT is beneficial for various conditions and injuries including inflammatory responses, joint and tissue movement restrictions, scar tissue and restricted fascia limitations, as well as chronic conditions in which pain arises.
Cupping has been around for over 5000 years, yet it is becoming more and more popular in the sporting world, with some of the biggest names in sport using it! It has been proven to enhance athletic performance, athlete’s recovery and acts as a great recovery tool during a grueling training schedule!
The suction and negative pressure provided by Cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles (sports pre-& post recovery), anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and can even remove or improve cellulite.
