Cupping therapy can generally be described as a technique that uses cups placed over the skin to create negative pressure through suction. Cupping therapy dates back to ancient times and was used around the world. In 400 BC, Herodotus listed wet and dry cupping as a treatment for many ailments, including maldigestion, lack of appetite, and headaches. Deborah uses cupping as a form of myo-fascial traction as the cups are moved continually over different body regions, lubricated by oils.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is used for chronic tension in the muscles, to reduce muscle spasm and chronic pain. Direct deep pressure to muscular attachments, friction and slow movement is part of this therapy.
Our clinc can provide medical massage by doctor's prescription on an individual basis.
Myofascial Release Massage
'Myo-' refers to muscle and 'fascia' is a type of web-like fibrous connective tissue found beneath the skin which serves as a kind of infrastructure for many of the smaller aspects of our bodies, such as blood vessels and nerves. 'Myofascial Release' is the application of slow, sustained pressure and movement on fascia in the body. It helps to loosen restrictions, adhesions, and impingements thereby bringing relief to headaches, neck pain, low-back pain, fibromyalgia, and improving range of motion.
Lymphatic drainage is a light technique with a sequence that promotes lymphatic circulation, peaceful relaxation and overall immune boosting benefits.
Prenatal Massage is a nurturing massage that focuses on the special needs of expecting mothers-to-be during pregnancy. Attention is given to edema and back pain, both of which are common in pregnancy. Mother and baby share in the benefits as stress and tension melt away, leaving you feeling balanced and energized. Positioning, pillows, and cushions are used to enhance support, decrease pressure and increase relaxation for both body and mind.
A combination of stretching, compression and gliding techniques to help relieve and prevent muscle soreness and ease tired joints that result from over exertion. Deborah utilizes traction and stretching for the neck, arms, and shoulders, as well as focuses on the hands and feet.
Swedish, or Classic Western massage, incorporates a variety of strokes that vary from light to deeper pressure. This type of massage promotes well being and overall mind and body relaxation.
