Functional Release Cupping (FRC)

What is it?

FRC is the integration of western myofascial cupping therapy with the concepts of anatomy trains (Fascial & Functional Lines), kinetic chains & function movement patterns.

It employs static and dynamic approaches with natural movement and sport/occupational specific activities. Once the practitioner strategically positions the cups on specific areas of the body, the patient will then move through natural or specific movement patterns.

The application is time efficient, requires low physical effort from the practitioner and creates instantaneous physiologically changes to the state of tissue.


This treatment helps with Myofascial pain syndrome which is a chronic pain disorder caused by sensitivity and tightness in your myofascial tissues. These tissues surround and support the muscles throughout your body by recruiting motor pathways to better facilitate the release and the improved functional movement. It provides new input to the nervous system, changing dysfunction and pain.
