Cupping

The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Cupping is much like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle pressure to pull them upward. For most patients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation. Once suctioned, the cups are generally left in place for about ten minutes while the patient relaxes. Gliding cupping is when these cups are gently moved along the muscle which has a lovely rolling effect while remaining suctioned. This has an enormously relaxing effect.

Dry Needling

Infrared Sauna

Dry needling may relieve a range of musculoskeletal problems through the insertion of needles into taut and contracted muscles, or trigger points. The aim is to restore proper function of the affected area. It is relaxing and therapeutic procedure that can form part of an ongoing treatment plan, and is suitable for conditions such as back and neck pain, sporting injuries, and discomfort caused by poor posture.
Infrared Sauna can increase micro-circulation, relieving pain, reduce swelling, flushing toxins and helps to rejuvenate healthy cellular functioning. Its emitting rays deep into your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments actually increases circulation within the cells. Giving your cells a chance to flush toxins and waste by-products while absorbing fresh oxygen and nutrients from the blood stream. A tremendously relaxing yet energizing experience! Bulk pack purchases available.

Taping

RockTape can assist with multiple ailments, however it has three primary functions: queuing form, reducing inflammation & swelling, and minimizing pain.  RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia, which decompresses the area which reduces swelling. RockTape also signals the central nervous system through the skin’s nerves, which provides powerful feedback to minimize pain and cue form. (from https://www.rocktape.com/).
