This type of massage treatment can encompass techniques from deep tissue, fascia release, Swedish massage and assisted stretching. Some goals include decreasing pain, stiffness and increase injury repair and range of motion.
Every step of the way, massage can relieve soreness and pain. As your shape and posture change, we make accommodations with special cushioning systems to help keep your comfortable and safe.
Cupping is a ancient form of alternative care in which the therapist put cups on the skin to create a negative suction pressure which helps to decrease fascia restrictions, increase blood flow and reduce pain. When cupping we use plastic and/ or silicone cups. The plastic cups remain still on the skin and have a more intense effect. They are more likely to leave circular marks on the skin for an average of 3 to 7 days. The silicone cups can be left in one area or more commonly, we use them to glide over the skin. We can include this in with your regular massage treatments. When you come in for your massage appointment we can assess to see if this treatment is right for you.
