Cupping Therapy

This treatment uses various types of cups for many different issues. Used in Chinese medicine for centuries, and in cultures all over the world, to help with illness, injury, circulation, and lymph flow, this treatment is really amazing. Though some cupping, especially on the back, leaves marks the more treatments you receive and the less injury in the muscles, the less the marking will be.

I am trained in contemporary cupping methods including static and dynamic, using silicone and plastic cups.

It is deeper work, but feels less painful than a traditional deep tissue massage. You can even cup the face (this will not leave marks) for sinuses, TMJD, Bell's Palsy, and to help improve fine lines. 

Some of the other problems cupping is used to treat are: muscle injuries, back pain, anxiety,  allergies, asthma, fibromyalgia, and many other conditions.

Who cannot receive cupping? People with blood clotting problems and a few other conditions, but almost everyone, including children, can receive and benefit from this treatment.

Gua Sha
A tool is used to apply pressure and scrape the skin to relieve pain and tension. This action can cause marks(similar to cup marks). The name gua sha — pronounced gwahshah — comes from the Chinese word for scraping.

Visceral Manipulation Massage

This is a gentle technique to relax and increase blood flow to internal organs and scar tissue. Some issues this type of treatment can help with are: IBS, reflux, bloating, constipation, painful menstrual cramps, endometriosis, cysts, and menopausal symptoms.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

MLD is used to stimulate the lymph system to decongest stagnation and increase blood flow. It can be used as a preventative measure for immune function, stress relief, as well as edema. This can also be used to improve breast health for nursing mothers or those experiencing congestion or painful breast tissue. This is a very gentle treatment and is unlike traditional massage. 

Relaxing Massage

Hot Stone Massage

With the movement of hot basalt stones around the body and warm oil, this massage penetrates deep into the muscle. If you need deeper work, but don’t like the sound of deep tissue, give this a try. Earth energy and chakra work make it especially rejuvenating.  This great article explains what a hot stone massage entails. Cold Stones can be added for a different, wonderful experience. Please put the note "fire and ice" into your apointment notes.

Bamboo Fusion Massage

This massage uses warm bamboo to create myofascial and trigger point release. This massage is very relaxing, but also allows for deep and targeted work. It's similar to hot stone but bamboo is a better choice if you're someone who needs deeper work.
