CUPPING MASSAGE THERAPY
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C. It is used to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Elise uses the dry version of the therapy using plastic and or silicone cups.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE THERAPY
Lymphatic drainage massages can help with healing after surgery. This type of massage regenerates tissues to reduce scarring at surgical incision sites. Lymph drainage massages also reduce swelling and detoxify the body, according to the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators. reports that lymph drainage massages help speed regeneration of tissues and cells.

This type of massage can also reduce fluid caused by lymphedema and help persons who have had lymph nodes removed. Better Breastfeeding Breastfeeding is the healthiest way to feed a baby, as breast milk is full of nutrients and antibodies. Yet some women experience complications while breastfeeding that is usually due to the baby improperly latching. These complications can include plugged ducts, sore nipples, and engorgement, and they can be painful and discouraging. While the effects can get better and completely resolve in time, some women choose to quit breastfeeding because of them. Dr. Bruno Chikly, the author of "Silent Waves, Theory and Practice of Lymph Drainage Therapy," states on MassageTherapy.com that lymph drainage massage can help to reduce the swelling of engorgement and ameliorate plugged ducts. Fixing these two problems can reduce soreness in the breasts and nipples, ultimately leading to better breastfeeding. Improved Immune System The immune system is tied to the lymphatic system. In fact, if the flow of lymphatic materials slows, the immune system weakens. MassageTherapy.com states that lymph drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections. Lymph drainage massages can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes diseases such as arthritis. Relaxation Most massages are relaxing because they are quiet and involve the personal touch of a licensed specialist. Lymph drainage massages can be especially relaxing because they can reduce pain levels in the body. The International Alliance of Healthcare Educators states that the rhythm, pressure and motion of lymph drainage massages work together to reduce pain and stress and to promote general vitality and well-being.

THAI HERBAL STEM MASSAGE THERAPY
Thai Hot Stem Massage is a form of massage that has drawn various components of other modalities to create a soothing, purifying, and rejuvenating massage therapy treatment.Among the therapies included are components of Swedish, Thai, Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, Shiatsu massage as well as acupressure and lymphatic drainage. Each treatment involves 2 stems, in addition to the massage techniques. In Thailand, the stems are used in treatments for aches, pains, to relieve inflammation and bruising as well as soothing treatment for underlying connective tissue. The deep moist heat produced by the steamed stems is highly effective when dealing with deep-seated muscle tension and the aromatherapy offered by the herbs is a wonderful way to encourage relaxation and promote the healing process. The cotton covering and the oils produced by the herbs offers an additional advantage of exfoliating, cleansing and improving the skin. Benefits of Thai Hot Stem Massage include general relaxation, detoxification, reduction in joint pain, stiffness, discomfort. The stems used for this treatment are a blend of several specific herbs, which are then bound in unbleached, natural cotton. The stems are organic and are produced and bought through a fair trade company. Clients are encouraged to take their stems home after the treatments. The stems can be enjoyed in various ways but care must be taken to ensure that they are stored properly. After each time the stems are used, they must be thoroughly dried then stored in an airtight container. Alternatively, they can be dried then frozen in an airtight container then frozen.

ACUPRESSURE MASSAGE THERAPY
The word "acupressure" sounds like it's related to the practice of acupuncture, but you might be surprised to learn that this natural therapy doesn't rely on the use needles. While acupressure treatment uses the same points on the body as acupuncture and shares some similar philosophies that come from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the practice involves manipulation of the patient using the hands. Acupressure is a specific type of massage that relies primarily on using the thumbs, fingers, and palms or a massage tool called a Shinkoda Acupointer. This tool has a tourmaline crystal. By applying pressure to specific points of the body, practitioners manipulate the flow of chi (qi) energy in the patient. Acupressure points — or acupoints — are locations on the body where chi may become congested or completely blocked. Acupressure massage is a natural holistic technique to address blockages that may be causing additional health problems. Different types of points When a therapist is using the acu pressure massage technique, they target either local points or trigger points. What is the difference between these two types of points? Local points are the actual spots on the body where the patient is experiencing pain or discomfort. Trigger points are those that are connected to the points of the body experiencing pain or discomfort. These two types of points the practitioner multiple avenues from to approach a patient's problem, a benefit of the practice. The points used in acupressure massage exist among a network or meridians, which are the highways on which chi flows throughout the body. Sometimes pressure is needed at these points to clear up blockages and help ensure a healthy, balanced and harmonious flow of energy through the meridians. Acupressure massage is used to help reduce pain, muscular tension and stress. Benefits Include: Relieving stress, tension and anxiety Improving sleep Relaxing muscles and joints Soothing the pain and discomfort of a sports or other injury Reducing digestive issues Minimizing headaches Alleviating chronic pain The therapy stimulates the body's circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems. It also helps the function of the immune system and the body's natural ability to heal itself.

Inferential Current/Tenns Therapy
Inferential current therapy is an effective therapy option used by many physiotherapy clinics to relieve pain and accelerate the self-healing process, getting your body back to a healthy, pain-free ate. The high-frequency signals of an IFC penetrate through the skin into deeper lying muscle tissues. Electrodes are placed on your skin around the injured body part. The Interferential Current device then transmits electrical impulses in minute quantities through your skin. Underlying tissue and nerves are stimulated which begins the healing properties. These impulses are not painful in the least. In fact, patients describe the sensation as a minor prickle on their skin. Frequencies produced by the IFC have been proven to stimulate endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This can help to create a self-healing process without the need for medications. This form of therapy is also extremely useful in reducing pain, inflammation, curing edema, and spasms. Inferential Current Therapy: Reduces or eliminates your pain safely.

The Thai Stem Facial treatment can be performed on its own or in combination with other treatments such as Body Wraps or Facials. The treatment time using the Facial Stems would be approximately 45 minutes. Before application, the therapist uses gentle pressure on the face and scalp, focusing on the Marma Points. (Marma points are junctions between the physical, astral and causal bodies.) Meanwhile, the Thai Facial Stems are being steamed or cooled (selection dependent) to release their natural oils and therapeutic properties. The Facial Stem compresses are then applied in a gentle stroking method fostering a completely soothing and tranquil state. The cotton has a slight exfoliation action and softens and prepares the skin to take in the nourishing properties of the stem. It is an incredibly relaxing and healing treatment for the skin.
