Cupping is a form of bodywork that promotes healing of soft tissue and relaxation of the nervous system
through decompression of our soft tissue. This is achieved through using vacuum suction; your therapist places a cup on the targeted area, & uses a rubber pump to create suction of your skin into that cup, lifting underlying soft tissue. This creates an increase in circulation and oxygenation of the blood. It can decrease toxins in our blood, and disrupts pain signals, creating an opportunity for new nerve pathways to open up, changing how our brain reacts to pain and discomfort.
Modality of massage of your choice, ended with chakra balancing treatment. This utilizes corresponding gem stones placed at each of the seven chakra locations to find imbalances in the chakras and helps to re-align the energetic flow. Chakras are energetic points in the body that are located along the mid line of our bodies that start at our root (groin) to end at our crown (head.) These energetic points correspond to major nerve centers and organs, and keep us balanced when they are opened or aligned.

Hot Stone Massage
A specialty massage that uses smooth, heated basalt stones that absorb and retain heat well. It is not simply the "gliding" of heated stones lightly upon the surface of the skin, but rather the stones are used as tools to deliver effective tissue and muscle massage at a pressure level comfortable to the client. The heat from the stones relaxes muscles and increases the blood flow to the area being worked on; this further accelerates the healing process.
