BENEFITS OF CHAIR MASSAGE

Chair massage excels at releasing upper back, neck & shoulder tension associated with prolonged desk work. Like all therapeutic massage, it helps relax the mind and alleviate stress while promoting circulation and the flushing of metabolic wastes. Additionally, massage helps the body release oxytocin, a neurohormone associated with deeper feelings of social connectedness, relaxation & well-being.

 

CUPPING THERAPY

bENEFITS OF CUPPING

Glass, silicon or plastic cups are suctioned onto the skin to decongest the tissues, drawing in freshly oxygenated blood and lymph, while releasing tension in muscles & fascia. Cupping has a unique ability to flush metabolic waste products & cellular debris from tissues using “negative suction.” This process leaves cupping’s signature “circular marks” visible post-treatment. It excels at alleviating chronic, deep musculoskeletal pain of bio-mechanical origin and unwinding trigger point pain.

BENEFITS of guasha therapy

Guasha is a skin scraping technique done with a smooth-edged tool stroked down various muscles, such as those running alongside your spine, meridians, or nerve pathways. It is generally painless and relaxing, producing red “sha” marks along areas treated. It is most commonly used to support resiliency to allergies, common colds, and other respiratory conditions. Guasha can also be used to help break up scar tissue, relax muscles, and release trigger points & myofascial adhesions.
