  • Cupping – placing special silicone cups on well-oiled skin in a way that creates suction to draw out tension and toxins from the tissue. Cups stay in place or slide over an area. Either way, space is created between the skin and muscles, increasing blood flow to tight areas and easing tension. Reviewed by NIH. Used in the Olympics and Hollywood.
  • Skin brushing – with natural bristle brushes, exfoliating dead skin to reveal youthful, healthy skin. Increases energy, stimulates lymphatic flow and the boosts the immune system.
