Massage Therapy / Chinese Cupping Therapy
Massage Therapy is the manipulation of soft-tissues of the body. It helps to ease stress and muscular tension; relieve pain from injuries; and speed healing from certain acute and chronic conditions. In some cases, massage can reduce or even eliminate the need for medication or surgery and is effective for all ages.
How does Massage Therapy work?
On your first visit, your massage therapist will ask you about your medical history, your current physical condition and review any referring practitioner's recommendations. Your massage therapist will then assess your problem area using range of motion, orthopedic testing, and any pain complaints you may be experiencing to help determine the best approach for your treatments.
Based on this assessment, your massage therapist will decide on a personalized plan that will focus on your specific health and wellness requirements. The appropriate frequency, duration and number of massage sessions for you will depend on your condition, its severity and how long you have had it, as well as your general health.

Cupping Therapy is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine in which a therapist puts special plastic or silicone cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.
In a typical cupping session, a vacuum pressure is created on the applied areas to lift, open, release, cleanse and hydrate tight muscle and fascia. Cupping targets the deep tissues and structures by creating suction and lifting the skin over the muscles which allows the blood vessels and capillaries expand. As the area receives a fresh infusion of blood, it is flooded with nutrients and oxygen that work to heal the damaged tissues and injuries.
While cupping is considered relatively safe it may cause swelling and discolouration on the skin. As the skin under a cup is drawn up, the blood vessels at the surface of the skin expand. This may result in small, circular discolouration on the areas where the cups were applied. These areas are usually painless and disappear within a few days of treatment.
