You have a stubborn knot in your shoulder that just doesn’t seem to want to go away. You push on it, you rub it, you even have your significant other shove their elbow in it and still it will not release. All you really want to do is pull it out.

Massage cupping can be a very helpful tool to release stubborn areas in you body. By using negative pressure, room is made in the affected area for blood to come and readily exchange nutrients. This action also helps to release distortions in fascia (connective tissue), and bring cellular debris to the surface of the skin. It is fantastic when it is paired with standard deep tissue massage.
