Massage Cupping

The application of suction to the body creating negative pressure. This negative pressure pulls and stretches the fascia and muscle fibers away from the body allowing for better circulation and breaking up congestion in the muscle fibers. Built up stagnant toxins in the muscles will surface, so they can be broken down by the body. It is also great for deep tissue work without the heavy compression of a deep tissue massage.

Reiki

 

Reiki comes from two Japanese words: "Rei," which means the higher power, and "ki" — "life force energy. Thus, Reiki is actually "spiritually-guided life force energy." Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit, and offers a client a sense of balance and well-being. A Reiki practitioner allows this "life force" to flow through his or her hands via placement on the body.
