Solutions for keeping your body toned and defined.

Connective Tissue Massage

 

Throughout our entire body, connective tissue connects and supports our organs, joints and muscles. Connective tissue also guides blood vessels and nerves to the organs and protects them against infections. Cells in this connective tissue play a major role in the wound healing process. The subcutaneous connective tissue insulates heat, stores energy and is responsible for the transport of oxygen, nutrients and waste products. As you can imagine, all cell and skin processes are therefore positively affected by a deep connective tissue massage.
For optimal results, multiple connective tissue massage sessions are required. As the course progresses, the tissue will become more supple and the structure of the skin will start to look increasingly better. The blood flow through the skin improves and waste products are eliminated faster.

Cupping Massage

 

The object of cupping is to draw more blood to the surface of the skin. This is achieved by creating a partial vacuum inside the cup, usually by means of heated air, and then placing the cup on the skin. As the air cools and contracts, the skin is drawn up into the cup.

Cupping provides both physical and mental benefits including:

  • Cupping brings the body’s blood closer to the skin’s surface, which is thought to increase circulation generally.

  • Tight, painful muscles are loosened during cupping, helping to promote healing and relaxation of muscle fibers.

  • Scar tissue and adhesions after surgery can be painful as the tightened tissue pulls during movement. Cupping can help to soften these tissues and make them more flexible and pliable, reducing pain.

  • Cupping helps to move lymph fluid through the body more effectively, bolstering and strengthening the immune system.

  • Those who are depressed or anxious often feel much more relaxed and positive after massage cupping.

  • Cupping is also thought to be beneficial to those suffering from respiratory ailments such as colds, asthma, allergies, or bronchitis.
