This special therapy is based on ancient pressure point techniques used on the feet, hands, and ears to restore a healthy flow of energy throughout the body. Used for migraines, arthritis, sleep disorders, stress, anxiety and back pain.
Cupping Therapy Massage
During massage cupping, the alternative medicine practitioner can move the cups around and glide them across your skin, and it is recognized as a form of massage therapy. Cupping has also been used for weight loss and cellulite reduction. Silicone therapy cups are more typically used for this form of cupping therapy because these therapy cups are softer and more flexible which makes it easier for the practitioner to glide them across the patient’s body.
Cupping therapy also utilizes different oils so that the cup can glide easily across the back of the patient. Massage cupping is considered an alternative medicine to help with pain management and induces feelings of relaxation and stress relief to ease tension. Cupping therapy offers several advantages including aiding in promoting blood flow and increase blood circulation to muscles and tissue, supplies oxygen to cells, loosens knots, and can release and drain excess fluids and toxins.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage with Endermologie ( LDME) 50min $110
What is Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymphatic Drainage Massage Endermologie is an advanced therapy that encourages the natural process of the lymphatic vessels to eliminate waste products and to boost your body’s defenses. Lymphatic Drainage is a form of very light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body. It is particularly good for detoxification, edema, pre and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. It can also help with cellulite treatments, scar tissue, spider veins, redness and acne. We combine this manual technique with Endermologie for a better results. The lymph system is a slow-moving system of vessels and lymph nodes that is supplementary to the body’s system of blood circulation. The lymph system both delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins. A therapist trained in lymph drainage massage stimulates the lymph system with extremely light, circular pumping movements. By stimulating the lymphatic system, the therapist helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body’s immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body’s natural waste removal or detoxification.
Drink plenty of water after a lymph drainage massage to help flush out toxins. Stay away from salt and alcohol after a massage, as they inhibit the body’s ability to flush out toxins.
