NEW!!! Contemporary Cupping (Multiple Methods)
Cupping is an incredible modality that among many other benefits - increases circulation, relaxes soft tissue and support, draws stagnation, pathogenic agents and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors. Myofascia Release, Lymphatic Drainage and Detoxification are only 3 of the therapeutic outcomes produced during a proper Cupping Treatment.
Another valuable asset regarding Cupping is that it feels great. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment. Clients are surprised at how relaxed, warm and light they feel – hours... usually even days afterwards.

Therapeutic Massage Explained
Therapeutic Massage (aka Deep Tissue) is a full body blend of medium to deep massage, therapeutic stretching, and one specialized modality like Trigger Point, Myofascial Release or Structural Integration.
Therapeutic Massage can be utilized as 'maintenance' supplemental to Orthopedic/Medical Massage treatment. After restoring balance and function, the objective is to maintain that balance. Regular Therapeutic Massage, coupled with appropriate self care, continues that balance.
