Wellness Programs MASSAGE THERAPY MODERN CUPPING THERAPY (Premium Program) (Premium Program) Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Cupping Therapy is the use of silicone and plastic cups placed on the body. Negative pressure occurs when the cups are suctioned onto the skin, which may help stimulate circulation. Cups can be used stationary or glided across the body. Cupping is an alternative therapy on its own or can be combined with Massage Therapy to potentially decrease pain and discomfort. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin; it also works on the soft tissues (the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body. Possible Benefits of Massage: › Relaxing › Ease tension and stiffness › Soothing › Improves breathing › Healing › Improves circulation › Reassuring › Enhances well-being HOT STONE THERAPY (Premium Program) Uses heated stones, to massage the body. The stones allow the therapist to address specific problem areas with much more detailed work or deeper pressure. Heated Basalt stones of various sizes, shapes and weights are used throughout. Sessions are by appointment only.
