Introducing 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. This service is provided exclusively by Nimia (bio below).
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.

45 Minute Cupping, $110

Nimia Nazario-Méndez is a Licensed Massage Therapist. She began her journey as an LMT when searching for an alternative solution to muscle tension and stress. After attending a massage workshop and finding the relief she was looking for, she wanted to do the same for others. This led her to enroll at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine where she earned her degree in Occupational Studies in Massage Therapies. She has since become an active member of the American Massage Therapy Association as well as a Department of Education NYS Registrant.
Nimia believes that life is all about learning and continues to attend educational workshops and trainings on a regular basis. She incorporates her knowledge of many forms of healing into her work from traditional Swedish Massage to Cupping Massage modalities.
Nimia believes that massage should be a part of your regular health care and well-being and that it is just as important as nutritious food, regular physical activities, good sleep and having a good laugh and a big hug!

Shiatsu is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan. Shiatsu massage therapy relies on the use of fingers, thumbs and palm to apply pressure to various areas of the body's surface to help heal common ailments and conditions, and correct imbalances in the body.
Pressure applied to points on the body promotes balance and corrects dis-harmonies throughout the body. In addition to being a deeply relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, treat pain and illness, and contributes to overall health and well-being. It is performed without oils through light, comfortable clothing.
Shiatsu regulates the nervous system activity and stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems.
What issues does Shiatsu specifically address?
Poor posture, joint problems, sprains, arthritis, sciatica, acute and chronic neck and back pain, sinusitis, and bronchitis are treatable with Shiatsu.
Sessions are 75 Minutes, $160 and are available with Peter or Sarah.

Summer Self Care by Stephanie
“What you do for yourself-any gesture of kindness, any gesture of gentleness, any gesture of honesty and clear seeing toward yourself-will affect how you experience your world.” -Pema Chodron
Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit
Summer is the perfect time to slow down and notice where you need to be "fed", aka, practice self care. Nobody can do this for us. And if we don't do this for ourselves, we risk becoming resentful, contracted, and unhappy! We must feed ourselves in order to feed others.
As I spoke about last week, we are in charge of our own happiness and this includes on going self care. Give yourself permission to do what makes you feel good. You're worth it.
Top 5 Picks to Nourish Body, Mind & Spirit:
Massage - From therapeutic and deep tissue massage to relaxing massage, it's one of the oldest healing modalities. Massage can relax muscles, soothe aches and pains, release energy blockages, rejuvenate body, mind and spirit.
Yoga - Yoga promotes inner and outer health & well-being. In addition to improving physical health: flexibility, strength, balance, pain management, yoga is a powerful tool in personal transformation. Yoga has been shown to decrease stress, helping with anxiety and PTSD, while improving our mood and outlook on life.
Meditation- We get 2 choices: medicate or meditate. From managing stress, anxiety, and PTSD to cultivating a deeper sense of inner peace and well-being, meditation can help.
