A typical session may focus on the relief of headaches, specific areas of soreness, pain, tension, or injury. Energy work, cupping, stretching, side-lying, and participation of the client–verbal feedback, physically adjusting positions or active involvement in stretching–may be utilized. Pressure may range from light and broad to very deep and/or detailed work. Occasionally, some clients prefer a full body session, without as much attention to detail throughout the session. Ideally, we’ll develop a treatment plan to address your body’s needs so you get the best results possible. Ask about chair massage at your office or out-call table massage!

Whereas massage therapy is a positive force, pushing into the body, cupping therapy is a negative force, lifting the tissues up. As this happens, fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients flood into areas that may have become stagnant and “stuck” feeling. As the fresh blood circulates into the area being treated, the stagnant blood and cell debris begin to move out of the area. When a cup is left in one place for several minutes, a mark often misidentified as a bruise will show up. The lymphatic system helps to flush the stagnant blood and cell debris out of the area, and the mark fades within a couple days usually.
