Cupping therapy is used by creating a vacuum on the skin. Suction cups rapidly release muscular tension, break up and drain stagnation, and increase blood and lymph flow to the skin and muscles.
Cupping has a powerful detoxifying effect, and also relieves musculoskeletal tension and pain. It also helps the body relax and unwind.
"I've had mild tendonitis that acts up occasionally, depending on how much and how I use my hands. When my forearm started aching excruciatingly for two days, I was unable to use my hand at all. After the first treatment, I was able to take my forearm out of the sling, and the pain had subsided by 60%. After the second treatment, the pain had totally vanished, and hasn't returned since."
"When I first went to Maya I was struck by her patient, caring, attentive listening and diagnostic skills. Through the years her expertise in treatments has helped me through a myriad of health issues including digestive problems, bladder issues and anxiety. I am so grateful that Maya knows how to put together the puzzle pieces and I always leave feeling more centered and healthier."
"I am happy to share with you some sense of the benefits I have experienced in my 4 or 5 years receiving acupuncture . After a severe car accident with broken back, ribs and sternum, I was in chronic pain. With weekly visits, this was relieved and has not returned. I had help after an ankle break and reconstruction, and stomach and digestive challenges have been helped greatly. Just my last visit with Maya, I could not drive any distance without pulling over because of weeping eyes from dry eyes…Helena
