Medi Cupping Modality + Massage Therapy

The benefit to Medi Cupping + Massage Therapy is to enhance over all treatment results blending classic techniques and customizing the application of this amazing modality. Healthy oxygenation and hydration within stagnant, injured tissue, is the primary benefit while releasing tension, softening adhesions thus relieving pain and significantly stimulating lymphatic flowThe "lifting" techinques provide profound results for pain without the discomfort that can result from deeper manual pressure and with much less time! Cupping was developed thousands of years ago and though the techniques have modernized, the original philosophy remains the same.

Typical feeling experienced is a resisted sensation in the area of the cup. It can be quite relaxing and soothing. Each treatment is unique to your specific needs. Cupping may cause some areas to temporarily change in colour, especially if there is or has been an injury or blockage. There is no pain associated with what can resemble a light bruise colouring & this will eliminate within minutes, a few hours or days depending on congestion. Once dissipated, the procedure can be repeated until the ailment is resolved. Our therapist will make every effort to provide a gradual approach always seeking the most ideal protocol for speed of healing & pain reduction.
