Cupping-Based on the meridian theory of the body, cupping involves applying vacuum cups to areas of ischemic (tight/sore) muscle tissue. Cupping removes any stagnation in the body and opens the meridians so that qi can flow freely. It also helps to rejuvenate certain meridians and organs that are not functioning at their best. From a Western standpoint, cupping is known to help activate the lymphatic system, promote blood circulation, and is good for deep tissue repair. Cupping is wonderful for chronic pain and respiratory problems. It can be added to any massage. Integrated Bodywork-Acupressure/shiatsu-based techniques combined with Western therapeutic massage for stress-related concerns including emotional pain, physical pain, migraines, anxiety, gastro-intestinal disorders, asthma, menstrual/menopausal dysfunction. No needles are used. Heat, acupressure, stretching, and facilitated gentle postural exercises (Sotai) are included in this therapy. Swedish Massage-A whole body massage using organic allergen-free lotion on the skin. Techniques used include stroking (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), percussion, vibration, and friction. This is the most well known form of massage and is used primarily to improve circulation, digestion and relaxation. It is a good "starter" massage and is gentle enough for seniors and pregnant women. Swedish can be combined with essential oils for a perfect custom lotion blend to soothe and restore. Deep Tissue-Releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is called deep tissue, because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is helpful in realigning the body, improving posture, and bringing about freedom of movement. Trigger Point Therapy-Also known as Myotherapy or Neuromuscular Therapy. Applies concentrated finger pressure and fascial stretching to "trigger points" (extremely painful irritated areas in muscles that refer pain to other places in the body) to break cycles of spasm and pain. Heat and cold therapies and herbal liniment are often used in this treatment.
