Cupping is an ancient form of healing in which suction (negative pressure) is created using one or more glass cups in a localized area on the skin to mobilize blood flow. The suction creates circulatory movement in areas of stagnation in order to promote healing. Cupping is very effective at releasing fascial restrictions and adhesions. The cups can be moved around the body to promote circulation and release tension. 5 minutes of cupping is said to be the equivalent of 30 minutes of deep tissue. As blood flow rises towards the surface of the skin, visible reddish circular marks are created. The marks can be light pink to deep purple depending on the level of stagnation in an area and may be visible from a few days to a few weeks.
PerfectSense® is a new standard in paraffin treatments designed to address a multitude of skin care needs. What makes this treatment outstanding is its single use, disposable system eliminating the risk of bacterial infection from unsanitary communal paraffin tubs. Individual medical grade booties containing PerfectSense® paraffin wax are heated to just the right temperature and placed on the feet. The heated wax draws circulation towards the feet, opens pores, and softens rough skin. Paraffin wax has been shown to treat conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia among others. Before the booties are applied your feet are treated to a dry exfoliation and a generous application of Gehwol Fusskraft Blue foot cream designed for dry rough skin. Gehwol Blue contains effective ingredients that help prevent foot odor, fungal infections and itching while restoring elasticity, suppleness, and smoothness.
