Add Cupping to any service with Ashley for just $10

Cupping therapy has been used since the ancient Egyptians dating back to 1550 BC. and to date is commonly found in nearly every medicine cabinet throughout Europe.  By creating a suction with either glass or plastic cups, this therapy is used to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen stubborn knots and lift connective tissue all in which brings fresh blood flow and oxygen to stagnant muscles and skin.  Worldwide, cupping has been considered as a remedy for almost every type of disease and also important means in maintaining health.  Cupping can be used for asthma, common colds, indigestion, lymph drainage, and also aids in the process of quitting smoking by pulling excess tar from lungs.  Various techniques are applied for particular results which most commonly include gliding cups and stationary cups.  Gliding cups use the same process of vacuuming to the skin but also have an applied aromatherapy based oil treatment which allows the therapist to gently maneuver the cups while suctioned to the skin achieving fantastic results and feeling great!  Stationary cups are equally effective being placed on the skin and left for a period of 5-15 minutes for muscle and tissues to be replenished and after removed, the area of the applied treatment is completely flushed out.  This is a wonderfully effective and relaxing treatment that can be used for the entire family and incorporated into any massage for profound results.  Note- it is normal for this therapy to leave temporary marks resembling bruises where the cups were applied.  There is nothing harmful about these marks, and typically go away 2-7 days after the treatment.  Your therapist will show you what the cups look like beforehand and answer any questions you may have.
