Cupping with Massage
Cupping is a form of decompression therapy that helps alleviate pain and brings blood and lymph to the body's surface to help regenerate connective and muscle tissues. There are two ways I use the cups:
1) Static use: cups are placed on specific areas and left on the body for up to 5 minutes. This will likely leave those red spots we associate with cupping.
2) Dynamic use: the cups are moved along the body to help loosen the fascia and muscles. This technique does not typically leave marks. It targets the full muscle versus one spot.
60 Min - $100 / 90 Min - $135 / 30 Min - $60
Deep Tissue is what it sounds like: firm pressure to access the inner layers of your muscle and connective tissue. Great for treating muscle pain and some injuries.
30 Min - $40 / 60 Min - $75 / 90 Min - $95
Sports Massage can be utilized directly before an event, during training, or after an event. Typically, the therapist will target the muscles the client uses in the sport (i.e. calves, quads, and hamstrings for runners). The sessions tend to be short in length for pre and post-event massages.
30 Minute sessions only - $45
The chair massage takes place on a traditional massage chair that provides easy access to the shoulders, neck, head, back, and arms. The massage is done over clothes. Add an aromatherapy scalp massage for extra relaxation!
