Myofascial Cupping Massage
Offered by Shelly & Leona
coming soon for Fallyn & Claire
Cupping involves the use of silicon suction cups to lift the tissue up to stretch & separate the layers of superficial fascia. There are numerous benefits to cupping such as increasing circulation, stretching soft tissues, separating adhesions, increasing fluid movement between joints, stimulating digestive movements, and more. The cups do cause markings on the skin which will fade within a week. Cupping marks are caused by the release of dead static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogens and toxins being released to the superficial tissue. They are not painful and can range from no mark to a deep purple.

Hot stone massage utilizes heated stones either placed strategically around the body or used to massage the tissue directly. The heat of the stones brings on increased blood and lymphatic circulation by relaxing and opening blood vessels, further allowing muscle tissue to release. Adding to this core benefit, hot stone allows for the body to increase metabolism, better filtering food and toxins. This may also help boost the immune system as well as balance hormones. When muscles are able to fully relax, this will increase joint mobility, decrease stress and anxiety as well asimprove one’s sleep.
When using hot stone massage incorporated into atreatment-based approach, we are able to reduce muscle spasticity faster, allowing for deeper treatment of dysfunctional tissue. This improves efforts in reducing pain and dysfunction.

Stretch Therapy utilizes active isolated stretching (AIS) as a method of lengthening the muscle and releasing fascial tissue. AIS allows the body to repair itself and to prepare for daily activities.
In this method the stretch is held for a duration of 2 seconds, this allows the targeted muscle to lengthen without triggering the protective stretch reflex of the antagonistic muscle contraction. As stated in the name these stretches are active, meaning a trained therapist moves the patients body part during the stretch, this active movement allows optimal flexibility to be achieved. A stretch rope or band is usually incorporated into these movements as an aid in reaching full range of motion during this active stretching technique.
