How does it work?

The majority of soft tissue therapies operate through the application of a compression force to the myofascia, eg. massage, ART, foam rolling. 

Alternatively, cupping uses the negative pressure created by the vacuum in the cups to place a decompression load to the tissues. 
The negative pressure created by the removal of air from the cups lifts, stretches and separates the underlying tissue.
