Cupping, Gua Sha, Massage
Chinese Fire Cupping is a modality that is used to increase blood circulation, relieve pain, break-up scar tissue, and myofacial release. Flame is used to create a vaccum in a glass cup that is placed on oiled skin. The cups may be left stationary or moved with a massage like technique. The suction used ranges from mild to deep/ heavy depending on the condition being treated.
Gua Sha therapy uses smooth tools scraped across oiled skin to breakup stagnation and increase micro-circulation. Gua Sha can be used to treat chronic pain, sports injuries, poor circulation, and repetitive use injuries. Like cupping, gua sha can leave discolorations on the skin.
A variety of massage modalities available including Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue, Myofacial Release, Pregnancy, Tuina, and Shiatsu. Currently massage therapy is only offering in combination with an acupuncture session.
