Reflexology involves application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Cupping Therapy has its roots in ancient Egyptian and Chinese medicine, however many cultures throughout the world use cupping as a manual therapy for healing. The premise of cupping involves creating a vacuum with a cup on the skin surface thus creating a lifting action on the tissue. The vacuum draws blood to the surface of the skin and helps to increase blood circulation as well as to remove waste products that can be trapped in the muscle tissue. Cupping also has a strong effect on the fascia surrounding the muscle tissue and helps to relieve adhesions and areas of tension associated with a tight fascial layer. Discoloration of the skin after cupping is common and will dissipate within 5-7 days depending on the strength of the vacuum created and the length of time a cup was left in place. Cups can be placed over areas of tension for “on the spot” treatment or the cups can be moved around once placed on the body. Cupping works well for recovery after competition or work-out but can also be used on chronic areas of tension and repetitive-movement injury scenarios.
