Cupping and Medi-Cupping
After age forty, 40-60% of microcirculation of the tissues becomes latent or non-functional. Similar issues occur in athletes and weekend warriors of all ages due to over training. Blood flow decreases and the body circulate less nutrients (amino acids, glucose, electrolytes, vitamins, water, etc.) and less oxygen. This causes the accumulation of toxins, which can impair or totally arrest the metabolism of cells. Cupping enhances self-healing creating space in the derma & subcutaneous spaces of our tissues thus improving the lymphatic system, blood flow, and causing the body to regenerate capillaries, reducing inflammation and toxins, and promoting homeostasis.
Great therapy for anyone, especially helpful for athletes, unresolved musculoskeletal issues, functional scoliosis, lymphatic issues, and injury resolution.

Specialty Treatments for Facial area include benefits for lifting, drainage, acne, lines, drooping skin, lymph, TMJ, headache, sinus. Series of 6 every 5 days for best results, single treatments are available.
The gentle lifting and gliding action to create space in the tissues enables elimination of new wastes that can otherwise re-accumulate and cause allergies, inflammation, or sensitivities. Another benefit of this technique is increased vascular integrity and stimulated collagen production to aid in toning flaccid tissue. A unique quality of these modalities is the “lifting without force.” Even when working on deep scars and adhesions, fibrous tissue, or fascia that has retained memory from incident or injury, the technique is comfortable and works very quickly.
The respiratory system and phlegm respond very well to Cupping and this can ease labored breathing. The effect on the nervous system is sedating and is widely used for high blood pressure conditions, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, chronic headache, neuralgia, and rheumatism. Pain relief is quick, and long-term injuries and restrictions can release in one or a few treatments. Scar tissue softens quickly. Lymph drainage using Cupping can greatly benefit pre- and post-operative conditions and may assist in the healing process. The same drainage, breakdown of stagnation and adhesions will assist in contouring the body and improving the appearance of cellulite.
After treatment drink plenty of water and avoid hot showers, sauna, over-heating the body and exercise. Avoid being chilled for 6 hours after treatment. Please only take lukewarm shower for 24 hours after treatment Do not engage in other body work for 48 hours after treatment.
