Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that’s based on the belief that certain health problems can be caused by stagnant blood and a poor energy flow through the body. A therapeutic cupping treatment involves placing suctioned cups on a client's back, neck, and shoulders or the site of pain. This increases the blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue, and is thought to stimulate healing. It is similar to the way deep tissue massage can be used to break up scar tissue and reduce pain. Cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness, depending upon the degree of suction created by the vacuum and the level of internal stagnation.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage combines relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness to encourage the body to detox and heal. This also increases lymph flow and helps to flush out waste. Heat relaxes your body in a short space of time, so your therapist can focus on a deep working of the tissues using both hot stones and hand strokes. Hot stones also increase your sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that the body has the ability to enable healing in body parts, organs, or systems, by stimulating specific corresponding reflex points on the foot. The reflexology therapist applies pressure on the reflex points to trigger stimulation in a corresponding organ or structure which facilitates relaxation, release of tension, and healing. Reflexology is a whole-body treatment that helps regulate the body and encourage the body to move the organ or structure and its associated energy towards balance and better function. Reflexology can be beneficial for increasing energy, inducing a deep state of relaxation, elimination of toxins, stimulation of the central nervous system, relieving sleep disorders, speeds recovery after injury or surgery, improves mood, reduces anxiety, relieves pain, improves digestion and overall feeling of wellness.
