Slide & Glide Cupping Therapy
Traditionally used in Chinese medicine, cupping is making a huge resurgence in body therapies because of the great benefits it brings. Slide cupping is different to the traditional application – the cups are constantly moved over your body so there is minimal bruising. Slide cupping works by lifting and moving the skin, fascia, connective tissue and muscles which creates more space for tissue mobility. It assists in breaking down small adhesions and kick starts the healing process by drawing fluids and healing molecules into the area – can even reduce old scar tissue. They can be applied to target tissue and improves its interlayer gliding. It reduces pain, increases movement and improves your body’s awareness.
It is a wonderful application for stress relief, and offers calming results from the whole nervous system. Light pressure strokes across the paraspinals, shoulders and ribs can create expansion and induce a deeper sense of breath and more breathing space in your body. This therapy can be done on its own or added on your massage treatment. 30 mins – $50
We also offer a range of spa treatments for that special occasion…….or simply because you are special and deserve a bit of indulgence!
