Massage Cupping Therapy. Timeless Body Healing.

Cupping therapy is a timeless body healing modality.

Massage Cupping Therapy is a modern form of this ancient technique. This can be a stand alone treatment, or combined with a hands on or stone massage.

The majority of the body can be cupped, using different sized poly-carbonate cups to fit each section. In traditional modern massage cupping, lotion is applied to the skin using gliding strokes toward the lymph system for drainage. Cups can be left stationary for a very short period as well, lifted and rotated for better tissue / adhesion release, blood flow and toxin/inflammation release.
