Cupping and Gua Sha



Cupping uses small glass cups to create suction along the back and shoulders to increase blood flow and remove toxins. The process is relatively simple: Christine protects the skin with ointment, heats up the air within the cup and then quickly places the cup on the skin. (Please note that the cup is not hot when it is applied.) She then either leaves the cups in place or slides them around and along a specific area. The process usually takes between five and ten minutes.



Gua Sha, or “coining,” is performed with a smooth, round-edged instrument similar to a Chinese porcelain spoon. After applying ointment to the distressed area(s), Christine uses the tool to massage the skin. Gua Sha sessions generally last between one and ten minutes.
