Therapeutic Massage is a blend of these modalities to help alleviate chronic tension, soothe the nervous system and increase circulation. Pressure can be a range from light to deep, depending on the preference of the client. Incorporating heat applications (hot stones or hot packs) help further the release of deep tension.
Cupping can be added, at no additional charge, to any service. Just enter "cupping" into the comments field of your online booking. Or, talk with your therapist at the time of your appointment. Typically, cupping is incorporated into the massage, and is not the entire focus of the massage.
Cupping massage is a modified version of cupping therapy commonly used in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). Glass cups are used to create a suction, or negative pressure, and are then used to glide over muscles and adhesions. The resulting sensation is similar to deep tissue massage or myofascial release. This highly effective massage modality addresses deeper layers of connective and muscle tissues. A great treatment for fibromyalgia, chronic pain, scar tissue, cellulite and draining excess fluids and toxins.
