MASSAGE & CUPPING SERVICES
I use a variety of techniques on a case by case basis depending on your individual needs.
No two sessions are the same.
If you are looking for targeted work then often times an integrative session where we are working together, using various neuro-muscular, activation release techniques, and cupping therapies is my approach.
If you are simply needing to unwind and feel restored, then aromatherapy, hot stones, and hot towels come into play. Targeted fascia work and neck traction take all of these sessions to the next level. If there is something specific that you know you would like ahead of time, kindly let me know when you make your appointment and I will do my best to meet your needs.
PS: I am not a "no pain, no gain" therapist.
If you need to feel pain in order to relax, I am not the therapist for you. I use cups and various other techniques to go deep while applying firm, confident pressure.
I am a proud member of the International Cupping Therapy Association and have been trained in a variety of cupping modalities including massage cupping, facial rejuvenation cupping, cupping for cellulite, dynamic cupping, stationary cupping, sports cupping, biomagnetic blanket for the back as well as other targeted areas of the body. When it comes to manual lymphatic drainage and myofascial release, it's my modality of choice.
Cupping uses negative pressure by creating suction to lift the tissue, drawing stagnant blood and lymph to the surface to be flushed out by the lymphatic and circulatory systems while simultaneously encouraging fresh blood, lymph and chi to take its place. Rather than using compression, like in massage, the negative pressure creates space by lifting tissue, un-sticking gluey adhesions, drawing out stagnancy and inviting in fresh nutrient-rich blood to the cells. The stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) is profound and I find that the effects from this bodywork lasts longer than massage therapy by itself.
The dynamic duo of both is amazing.
Cumulative treatments are encouraged for lasting change to the tissues. Check out www.cuppingtherapy.org to educate yourself more.

Receiving bodywork checks soooo many boxes when it comes to replenishing your energy - mind, body and soul. Balancing the activities between the sympathetic nervous system (fight/flight/freeze) and the parasympathetic nervous system (rest/digest) is the mark of great health and the goal of my practice. An imbalance of these two systems has unhealthy results, acute and long term, manifesting in various forms of dis-ease in the body, mind and emotions.
Compression, through massage, and decompression, through cupping, both help soften constricted muscle fibers and connective tissue, relieving symptoms of pain, stiffness, headaches, limited range of motion, cramping and other dysfunctions of the system. These therapies bring in fresh blood, oxygen, and chi while removing metabolic build up, stagnancy and adhesions. Balancing the nervous system optimizes neuromuscular communication, clarifying the body's signal to keep your immune and others systems strong.
When your nervous system is whole and complete, you have energy to adjust, repair, replenish and restore. You have energy to use to remember your natural state.
My intention in my work is to do my best. I provide a safe, loving, professional, respectful touch for all who grace me with their presence. You bless me with your presence and, in exchange, I bless you with mine. ♡
