Massage Cupping Bodywork Therapy

If you are not familiar with this ancient form of alternative therapy, Massage Cupping is pleasant, gentle and non-invasive technique that utilizes special cups that are placed on the skin using vacuum. This treatment rapidly facilitates tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissue, breaks up and drains stagnation, and loosens adhesions/knots in muscles. The vacuum promotes increased circulation (blood flow) and lymph flow to skin and muscles which in turn helps relieve pain and inflammation by facilitating the muscles to move more freely.  The pulling action engages the nervous system then allowing a deep relaxation while reaching deep into the tissue. Massage cupping stimulates the elimination of accumulated tissue toxins and debris.

       Here are a few conditions/issues that respond to Cupping:           

   Fibromyalgia, Sciatica/Piriformis Syndrome, Chronic pain, Arthritis, Athletic Stress, Muscular aches, Plantar Fascitis, Back pain, Shoulder pain/frozen shoulder, shin splints, and many more.

MASSAGE CUPPING is beneficial on many levels!


Therapeutic FACIAL Cupping Massage

Facial Cupping Massage is a unique technique utilizing special cups creating very brief, gentle vacuum which promotes circulation, helps eliminate buildup of wastes and fluids in the face and neck. The specific actions involved assist to increase lymph drainage , stimulate collagen, softens and may reduce fine lines. I have created special Essential Oil Facial Blends that you can  choose for your individualized facial treatment.



AROMATOUCH is a essential oil application technique utilizing eight different pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils which are applied systematically to your back, neck, and feet. The AromaTouch oils may help to relieve stress, inflammation, aches, pains, tension, enhance your immune system and is excellent for your skin. This unique technique helps with many of life's everyday discomforts and stresses and it helps to stimulate the body to reach a state of balance called homeostasis.

This technique can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or it can be with a full body massage. Please let me know your desire when you schedule your massage session.
