Cupping creates “marks” that look like bruises but are indicators of the level of stagnation at the cupping site. Cupping reduces pain, detoxifies, improves scared tissue, decreases inflammation, tones & firms, shortens recovery time, stimulates the digestive system, increase blood flow, increases lymphatic flow, & increases “happy” hormones by stimulating the nervous system.

promotes the body’s natural healing process. Taping provides extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy. Kinesio tape affects the skin (epidermis & dermis), nervous system, fascia, muscles, joints, & the circulatory/ lymphatic systems. Variations in the shapes, size, direction of pull, & the tension placed on the tape during application is determined by assessments & the goal of the treatment. Tape reeducates the neuromuscular system, reduces pain & inflammation, enhance performance, prevent injury, promote good circulation, and healing assisting in returning the body to homeostasis (steady internal environment in the body).
