The benefits of cupping are not actually ‘skin deep’, but rather extend up for 10 cm into the body. Cupping provides both physical and mental benefits including:
Cupping brings the body’s blood closer to the skin’s surface, which is thought to increase circulation generally.
Tight, painful muscles are loosened during cupping, helping to promote healing and relaxation of muscle fibers.
Scar tissue and adhesions after surgery can be painful as the tightened tissue pulls during movement. Cupping can help to soften these tissues and make them more flexible and pliable, reducing pain.
Cupping helps to move lymph fluid through the body more effectively, bolstering and strengthening the immune system.
Those who are depressed or anxious often feel much more relaxed and positive after massage cupping.
Cupping is also thought to be beneficial to those suffering from respiratory ailments such as colds, asthma, allergies, or bronchitis.
Deep Tissue Massage
Bad posture can lead to fascia restrictions. If you sit at a computer all day, the tissues at the front of the shoulders and hips will tighten, because the body builds structure to keep your body in that position. Eventually, you’ll stoop forward. As shortened muscles and fascia grow stiffer, they will eventually cause a series of other problems as your body tries to compensate for its loss of mobility. Headaches, muscle tightness and other mysterious aches and pains can all trace their roots to myofascial restriction.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue. It is a technique that releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, either following or going across the grains of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is also a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body.
The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.

The hot stone therapeutic treatment is thought to have originated in China almost 2,000 years ago. These natural Basalt stones are rich in iron and so retain heat longer. One of the major benefits is that the heat from the stones penetrates your body, bringing many of the benefits of massage at a deeper level. It allows intense muscle relaxation which enables the massage therapist to actually work very deeply, without the same pressure that they would need to apply in a deep tissue massage. For those with chronic pain conditions, such as Fibromyalgia, massage has been shown to bring tangible positive effects. Researches have shown that people with painful Rheumatoid Arthritis have also experienced less pain.
