Class Description

This therapeutic integrated technique uses vacuum cups to enhance the manual manipulation of tissues creating a negative pressure releasing areas of tightness in the fascia, muscles and connective tissue. Cupping is an ancient art form that in Traditional Chinese Medicine opens up stagnant chi or blocked energy flow. We will integrate this technique with our massage technique in order to loosen adhesions in the muscle and bring hydration while facilitating an environment in the tissue to promote healing, relaxation and improve function. Cups are constantly moving and are never left stagnant more than 90 seconds, therefore stimulating flow of old lymph fluid and blood.
