Who Is It Good For?
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is for individuals who have lymph-edema and post cosmetics surgeries. Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a therapeutic treatment of choice among a variety of massage lovers due to its many benefits.
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized massage type that gently assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, and immune mechanisms. The system’s network of vessels and nodes contains lymph, a mixture of water, proteins, immune system
components, waste products, and other remnants of cell metabolism.
Lymph nodes, which filter out the debris, are found throughout the body, with especially large groups of them in the neck, armpits, and groin. These major collections of lymph nodes ensure that the lymph passes through as many nodes as possible before it returns to the circulatory system. During a lymph drainage massage, a specially trained massage therapist uses a series of light gliding, stretching, and slow motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system with proximal and distal strokes– allowing lymph flow through the tissues and lymph nodes. This massage follows a specific sequence over area needed to be treated.
Why Get (L.D.M)?
Today, men and women incorporate lymphatic drainage massage into their wellness routines given its detoxification and aesthetic benefits. Proponents say the massage technique is effective for pain relief, muscle tension, digestive problems, cellulite, allergies, headaches, and a long list of other issues. It’s also being used following cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling and flush byproducts of anesthesia out of the body. Lymphatic drainage massage has become a popular spa treatment for skin care, managing season allergies, detoxification, jet lag, and general stress reduction.
Why Choose Lymph Drainage over a more Traditional Massage?
Conventional massage like a Swedish massage or deep tissue massage is a wonderful experience for your muscles, joints, nervous system, and attitude. Deciding to receive a lymphatic drainage massage goes a step further. You may want to cleanse your body’s tissues during the change of seasons, after an illness or injury, or following a particularly stressful time in your life. Lymphatic drainage massage focuses on detox and purification - it revitalizes your energy.

Cupping Therapeutic Bodywork
What is Cupping?
Cupping is a comprehensive care technique aiming to decompress over-contracted muscles and other tissues. It is performed with medical-grade silicone cups. Cupping increases blood flow, absorption of water and nutrients, loosens adhesions which increase range of motion and stimulates the elimination of toxins and cellular debris, which often contribute to pain, tightness and fatigue. Simultaneously, the subtle yet crucial function of the lymphatic system is stimulated.

Who Is Cupping Good For?
Cupping is a form of therapeutic bodywork ideal for people that suffer from sports injuries and chronic pain. If you are someone that needs deep tissue massage, it is likely that cupping will benefit you.
Who Should Not* Receive Cupping?
While cupping is not dangerous, it is important to notify your therapist if you have high blood pressure as this will determine the intensity of the cupping session.
*Please do not book cupping if you have the following conditions: an open wound, fever, or lymphedema.
What to Expect Post Cupping:
It is common for cupping to leave circular or linear marks on the skin that can range from light pink to deep red. The marks are simply an indication of increased blood flow which still occurs even when there is no color change.
Cupping After Care:
After cupping, we recommend dry-brushing the area treated and adjacent skin, preferably following the lymphatic flow. It is best to avoid drastic temperature changes for a few hours – this includes hot showers. Wait one day before resuming your normal exercise routine and avoid any other body work for at least 2 days post cupping.
Sessions: 45 Minute Cupping, $120; 60 Minute Cupping, $155
