Experience increased range of movement with less pain!

Massage Cupping

Massage cupping is a technique that uses suction on the surface of the skin to draw inflammation and stagnation from the body to the surface where it is then flushed away in the lymph and circulatory systems. Some of the benefits of massage cupping include but are not limited to:

  • Clears Stagnation
  • Drains & Moves Fluids
  • Relieves Inflammation
  • Nervous System Sedation
  • Expels Congestion
  • Stretches Muscles and Connective Tissue
  • Loosens Adhesions in the Fascia

Cupping is gentle yet profoundly effective. Five minutes of cupping is equal to 30 minutes of deep tissue massage and can affect the tissue up to 4 inches into the body.

Pregnancy Massage​

Appropriate for all stages of pregnancy from the first trimester through to postpartum, this work is essential for relieving the pains and strains commonly associated with carrying a child. Side-lying and semi-reclined positioning assure your utmost safety and comfort! Please note that certain complications associated with high-risk pregnancy may require a medical release from your health care professional.

DFRTM Technique​

“Dynamic Fascial ResponseTM is a blend of structural therapies and foundational philosophy that produce a dialog of activation and response between the practitioner and the fascia. The response in the fascia releases holding patterns in the fascial body and, as a result, both physiological and emotional changes occur. This method resources and re-purposes stuck patterns and can heal trauma, relieve pain, improve posture and health and above all promote peace.” -Chula Gemignani, CMT and Instructor and creator and of the DFRTM Technique.
