What is MFD?

Myofascial Decompression (MFD) is a novel approach to manual therapy and exercise that combines negative pressure technology with evidence -based movement science principles in orthopedics and sports medicine. We focus on incorporating cupping therapy to achieve efficiency of motion with fascial mobility and neuromuscular re-education.

Our mission is to expand the clinical understanding and application of fascial anatomy and how it affects movement science.

Sports medicine providers that understand the science & the difference #beyondcupping

Click here to see The Supple Leopard - Kstar discuss why cupping works with Dr. DaPrato: 

Watch: "The Role of Fascia in Health" with Dr. Helene Langevin, Director of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health at the NIH, discussing the important role that connective tissues play in human health - beyond simple mobility.

WATCH: Cupping for IT Band Syndrome

Dr. Chris Garcia, PT, DPT, SCS, CSCS, USAW demonstrates how to approach treatment strategies for IT Band Syndrome. Knee pain with running or exercising can be frustrating. Myofascial decompression for can help with pain reduction.

It's our personal commitment to provide you all with innovative cutting edge assessments backed by current research based evidence. All our lecturers are actual professors in a medical schools setting, and will provide you with the best learning environment possible.

How it works

The myofascial decompression approach is the only one of its kind that works by lifting fascial structures, instead of compressing them. This is paired with movement re-education through a biomechanical lens.
