Facial Cupping

Small suction cups are used during facial rejuvenation cupping create a gentle vacuum to lift the skin and other facial tissue. Lifting the facial tissue activates the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins, cellular waste and excess fluid in the face and neck. Rigid muscle tissue in the face and neck is easily massaged with facial cupping.

Benefits of Facial Rejuvenation Cupping:

Transpersonal Hypnotherapy

Kelly is a certified Hypnotherapist specializing in Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and past life regression. She studied Quantum Healing Hypnosis with Dolores Cannon and practices her method of hypnotherapy, QHHT.

         I believe each and everyone of us has within us the resources to live the life of our choosing. In Transpersonal Hypnotherapy there is an emphasis on the innate spiritual resources within us combined with the belief that the guidance of a higher power will be present. This access to this inner guidance can increase awareness around personal and societal programing. With increased awareness comes the personal choice to keep or reject these programs. Once the choice to reject old programs is made, the undesirable patterns are deprogrammed. This leads to the waking-up of spirit. The combination makes for a powerful change from within.

            Transpersonal Hypnotherapy can be used for purposes such as smoking cessation, weight loss or fear/phobia control. It can also be used for childhood and past life regressions and can provide experiences of life between lives. 

We greatly appreciate your consideration. You are expected to give at least a 24 hour notice before canceling your treatment. If you fail to give 24 hour notice you will be charged full price of the massage. Our time is valuable, this is not only a consideration to the massage therapist but also to others clients who are trying to get in on that day. Thank you! :)

"It is very hard to find someone who does a good deep tissue massage. Kelly does a wonderful job. The hot stones are a nice touch. I recommend her very highly." - Pat Canady

What are the marks left after cupping?

The most common misunderstanding regarding one of the most powerful and beneficial after effects of Cupping, is the marks that sometimes result.

When injuries occur deep in the muscle, bleeding often occurs causing deep bruises. There will also be edema in the area involving the coagulation of sticky proteins. The combining presence of these elements usually results in stagnation of circulation to the area - resulting in pain, dysfunction, and chronic conditions.

The vacuum formed by Cupping draws up the old non-circulating stagnant blood and sticky fluids from the area, bringing them up to the surface and away from the injury so that healthy free circulation can be restored to the affected area, thus creating space for oxygen, living cells and nutrients for faster recovery.

Where there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogenic factors, and toxins present in the body, Cupping can leave marks which indicates that the stagnation or disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface.

In many countries - this is a non-issue, they've experienced themselves the amazing detoxifying effects suction therapy can provide. But in some industrialized countries, where Allopathic Medicine still over-shadows more holistic, natural approaches, these surface discolorations are misinterpreted as damage rather the result of debilitating agents being drawn to the surface. Westerners also live in an image conscience society that also has a heightened sensitivity to domestic abuse... so, without sufficient understanding, some people are unnerved upon seeing this important after effect.

Once people understand what these marks are, and feel the results - the concerns disappear.

The color and pattern of the marks depend on the level of stagnation in the area, and range from a bright red to dark purple, usually lasting 3 days to a week - sometimes longer if the person is very sick or sedentary. If there is no stagnation present, there will be only a pink marking which disappears in a few minutes to a couple of hours.

"I've been receiving massages from Kelly for many years, and she is, by far, my favorite massage therapist. She works hard to make sure your experience is superb. She knows that no two clients are created equal, and she makes it a point to discuss the reasons for your visit to address your problem areas, and she adapts her techniques to best suit your needs." - Kathleen Putiri
