Everyone can benefit from a massage and cupping treatment! Therapeutic, invigorating, relaxing, detoxing, the health benefits from these therapies are endless.


MASSAGE

Other then the fact that it feels AMAZING, there are many health benefits to receiving regular massage. Some of these include;

Reduces muscle tension and pain: massage eases trigger points and lengthens the muscles to reduce pain, increase joint mobility, improve posture, encourage healing after injury, eliminate toxins and oxygenate the cells.

Stress reduction: massage encourages the release of endorphins, our ‘feel good’ hormones, and reduces the nasty stress hormones, leaving you feeling calm and relaxed

Immune boosting: as it reduces stress hormones, increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, this all provides a boost to the efficiently of the immune system.

Improved skin tone: the increased circulation through the body reduces tension in the skin and tissues, and promotes cell regeneration. As massage stimulates the production of sebum, it leaves your skin soft, smooth and hydrated.

CUPPING
Cupping is like a massage from the inside out. A flame is used to create a vacuum inside a specially designed glass cup. When placed on the body, the suction draws up the skin, muscle and the underlying tissue.
This vacuum like affect draws up old stagnant blood, toxins, sticky fluids and pathogens to the surface, giving the area space for fresh blood, oxygen, cells and nutrients to flush through, allowing the body to heal quickly. This is how cupping can help decrease pain, lengthen muscles, reduce inflammation and recovery from injury.
Cupping also helps to clam the nervous system, lower blood pressure, calm the mind and promote the free flow of Qi through the body.

Cupping is painless, but often results in bruise-like marks on the skin, which disappear by themselves anywhere from a few hours, up to eight days. Cup mark colours range from a very light pink to a deep purple / almost black.
These marks are part of the healing process, and a sign that the stagnation or disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface. The more stagnant blood, lymph, toxins, pathogenic factors and cellular debris there are in the body, the deeper colour the cup marks.

MASSAGE BAR

Like all our treatments, our massage is tailored to the individual so pressure, depth and technique varies depending on the desired outcome of the treatment.

Remedial massage: firm pressure massage which involves working through impaired, knotted, tense or immobile muscles and tendons.

Trigger point massage: involves deactivating trigger points in the muscles by using controlled pressure over the muscle knot, whilst taking the muscle through its range of motion. This helps to remove lactic acid and other nasty chemicals within the trigger point.

Relaxation massage: slow, medium pressure and calming massage strokes, relaxation massage is all about leaving the client less stressed physically and mentally.

Meridian massage: involves stimulating specific acupressure points along the body’s meridians to balance the flow of Qi (energy) and blood, clear blockages and bring the body back to homeostasis. Thereby helping to ease common health problems and prevent the body from becoming sick.

CELLULITE + DETOX CUPPING

Causes of Cellulite
Cellulite is mainly a genetic condition, which causes fluid retention under the skin, a decrease in lymphatic drainage and blood flow. An increased number of fat cells can also develop due to hormonal imbalance.
All of this causes fat cells that lie under the skin to convert into cellulite.

How Cupping works
The suction from the cup on the skin and underlying tissue, applies a reverse pressure, which helps to break up the cellulite.
As the cups draw up the skin and muscle layers, this promotes the free flow of blood and Qi (energy) through these area’s, reducing fluid-build up to leave the skin healthy, smooth with a more cellulite-free appearance.
The increased blood circulation in and around the cupping area, releases fat and toxins into the lymphatic drainage system. As cupping also stimulates this system, toxins are eliminated from the body quickly and effectively.

We advise clients to hydrate very well and gets lots of sleep after a cupping session, to aid in the detoxification process.
