Cupping


Cupping is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that has been used for thousands of years to help move excessive and stagnant “qi” or energy in the body. In Western medicine this may look like a big knot between your shoulder blades, tight leg muscles from cycling or scar tissue from a surgery. Cupping can be thought of as an inverse massage. The suction of the cups raises the underlying tissues into the cup, bringing oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the area and causes a forced healing process to begin. The blood vessels may break and the body’s own amazing healing mechanism kicks in. Yes, there can be bruises formed after the treatment but it is not a painful therapy. Clients with back and muscle pain and poor circulation will benefit from cupping therapy. This therapy can be added into a massage session, typically at the end of the hands on work to further improve the extent of benefits in a single session.

1Cancelation Policy
We understand that unanticipated events happen occasionally in everyone’s life. Business meetings, car problems, snowstorms, and illness are just a few reasons why one might consider canceling an appointment. In my desire to be effective and fair to all clients and out of consideration for the therapists’ time, I have adopted the following policies: 12 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give a 12 hours advance notice you will be charged 50% of your appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.
2No Shows
Anyone who either forgets or consciously chooses to forgo their appointment for whatever reason will be considered a “no-show”. They will be charged 50% for their “missed” appointment and future service will require pre-payment.
3Arriving Late
Appointment times have been arranged specifically for you. If you arrive late your session may be shortened in order to accommodate others whose appointments follow yours. Depending upon how late you arrive, your therapist will then determine if there is enough time remaining to start a treatment. Regardless of the length of the treatment actually given, you will be responsible for the “full” session.Out of respect and consideration to your therapist and other customers, please plan accordingly and be on time.
