Offered by Joyce Szeto, RMT

Reflexology makes an excellent complement to a massage therapy treatment. Joyce has taken additional training in Reflexology and can implement it into her treatments to help clients achieve deeper relaxation, alleviate stress, and promote healing for specific conditions or areas of the body.

You can choose to incorporate Reflexology into a massage session or enjoy the full treatment on your feet. Reflexology sessions start similar to a standard massage treatment with a patient health history intake and assessment. Because the treatment is performed by an RMT, a receipt for Massage Therapy can be issued for insurance purposes.

Dry Cupping & Acupuncture

Offered by Bianca Anzovino, RMT

Offered by Bianca Anzovino, RMT

We are excited to now be offering Dry Cupping and Electro-Acupuncture (E.A.) 6 days a week. Mondays-Saturdays 3pm-8pm and alternating Sundays 12pm-6pm

Dry Cupping:

The Dry Cupping Approach targets deeper structures and aids in releasing fascial restrictions around muscles, tendons, and joints which helps to increase range of motion and decrease pain.

Read More.....

Cupping is recognized by the World Health Organization as an effective treatment. With modern understanding of microbiology and pathology, blood-letting techniques have been mostly abandoned. When no bleeding is involved it is called dry cupping, which is practiced in western society today.

Cupping is effective because of the suction action which draws new blood to the skin in a process called neovascularization. This process often leaves the patient with ecchymosis (blood between skin layers) and bruising, caused by ruptured blood vessels. Cupping increases extra-cellular fluid and ground substance between layers of fascia which allows for better slide and glide of tissue layers over one another (mutual allowance). Your therapist will gage how much suction is necessary and will customize treatments depending on tolerance, resilience, and tissue integrity.

Movement is advised after a cupping treatment to encourage blood flow in and out of the area treated. Movement with range can be extremely beneficial for the promotion of new ground substance and how the fibrous materials settle. The goal is to establish a more adaptive pattern which will reduce pain and increase range of motion.

Electro-Acupuncture (E.A.)

There are several modes for which Electro-Acupuncture therapy may be utilized. Massage Therapy electro-acupuncture takes a neuro-functional approach that targets motor points, which are synonymous with trigger points.

A neuro-functional approach to acupuncture acknowledges the importance of nervous system governance within the body and is used as a tool to modulate muscle tissue dysfunction and/or enhance muscle strength and contractile fluidity.

For best results, this treatment is often combined with active exercise.

It is recommended to eat within 2 hours of the treatment and to be well hydrated as the effects of E.A. induces the metabolic process.
