Therapeutic suction 'cups' are used around the body to target areas of deep congestion, stagnant energy, and trigger points (knots). This technique boosts healthy lymph flow, and detoxification. Cupping commonly produces marks on the body that vary from pink to dark brown. They look like bruises but they are not. The coloration is a byproduct of the released tissue, and resolves in a few days. Lymphatic massage techniques are part of this treatment to aide the bodys natural ability to flush and heal.

Reflexology is a grounding part of this treatment to open energetic pathways within your body systems from the feet up.
