Cupping is a 3,000-year-old non-drug therapy that involves placing special cups filled with heated air on painful areas of the body. As the cups cool, the volume of air within the cup shrinks, creating suction on the skin that increases blood flow to the area.
Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It has been shown to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Toxins can be released, blockages can be cleared, and veins and arteries can be refreshed within these four inches of affected materials. Even hands, wrists, legs, and ankles can be ‘cupped,' thus applying the healing to specific organs that correlate with these points.
This treatment is also valuable for the lungs, and can clear congestion from a common cold or help to control a person's asthma. In fact, respiratory conditions are one of the most common maladies that cupping is used to relieve.
Scrapping (Gua sha ) is a healing technique of traditional Chinese medicine. Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional pressure-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface. Modern researchers have used various techniques to show that microcirculation is indeed increased in the treated area, therefore decreasing both local and distal areas of pain. Additionally, modern research has found that Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders including liver inflammation.
Swedish massage is a classical Western massage, generally performed in the direction of the heart, sometimes with active or passive movement of the joints. It is used especially for relaxation, relief of muscular tension, and improvement of circulation and range of motion.
Relaxation massage is a gentle massage that uses smooth gliding strokes to help your muscles relax and reduce your fatigue. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure.
There is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or "knots" in the muscle tissue, which can be uncomfortable and cause some people to tense up against the pressure.
In a relaxation massage, the therapist won't push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to relax. It's a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down.
