MFD/Cupping (Myofascial Decompression) Shanghai
All of Up Clinic Shanghai’s physical therapists are trained in the MFD ARTH Method, originally taught in San Francisco, USA by Dr. Christopher Daprato, the pioneer of cup therapy.
Myofascial Decompression (MFD), otherwise known as Cupping, is a form of soft tissue work where a pneumatic pump is used along with vacuum cups to release fascia and muscle tissue underneath the skin. MFD is especially useful in the treatment of post-op joint stiffness, and chronic overuse injuries such as bursitis, tendonitis, tendinosis, and other myofascial pain syndromes (low back, mid-back, neck pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain etc.).
