Cupping for Myofascial Release and Massage
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative therapy in which a local suction is created on the skin; this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using silicone cups. Through suction, the skin is gently drawn upwards by creating a vacuum in the cup over the target area of the skin. The cup stays in place or is moved slowly for five to fifteen minutes. It helps treat pain, deep scar tissues in the muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and swelling. It is also helpful for facilitation the flow of lymphatic fluid. 60 minute session- $125.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Within us all there are silent systems working to keep us healthy—the lymph system is one of them. Without it, our bodies would swell up like balloons, filling cells with stagnant fluid. The lymph system’s impact is so far reaching that many don’t realize that minor aches and pain, low energy, or susceptibility to colds and flu may be due to sluggish lymph systems.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a profound technique to help increase lymph flow. Harmful substances can be released from tissues and neutralized in the nodes. An increase in lymph flow stimulates an increased production of lymphocytes, which enhances immune function.
Lymphatic drainage massage is also useful for patients with sports injuries; for patients with scars; and for those who have had cancer and had lymph nodes removed. Sometimes these people develop edema. Lymphatic drainage massage has also been shown to help the scarring process by enhancing circulation. Lymph drainage massage enhances the quality of the skin, especially on the face. When the lymph is flowing the cells are being bathed in fresh fluid....30 minute (only after hour session) - $65,
