The most common side effect of cupping therapy is the presence of cupping marks and the discoloration of the skin. The bruising of the skin is regarded as a part of the therapy session in many cases. There are two common explanations for the marks that are left behind after the cupping therapy. The more obvious one lies in the blood circulation. When the negative pressure is applied in the cups, and the skin is drawn up, a lot of the tiny blood capillaries in the superficial layer of muscles and skin are broken. This drives the body to treat the area as a bruise and start a bruise healing process. This process causes the discoloration of the skin by producing chemicals known as inflammatory mediators and by forming tiny blot clots under the skin. The other reason for cupping to leave marks is a bit tricker. When suction occurs, the gap between the skin layers increases. This extra space allows the tissues to collect more fluids, toxins, and dead cellular debris under the top layer of the skin. As the lymphatic system washes this debris away, the skin returns to its original color.

That’s why you shouldn’t worry about these marks. In fact, even ancient healers considered these bruises an indication of the success of the therapy session. The reason behind that is that they believed that these dark marks represent the release of the toxins from the body, which is close to the debris theory. They also believed that the darker these marks are, the more stagnation and toxin-filled the blood was.

There are other side effects that you can experience after cupping therapy. These are mainly minor dizziness and headaches. Dark Purple Color

The darkest shades of purple usually mean severe stagnation. They’re more frequent between first-time users, as the practitioners suck the largest amount of toxin build-up from the body of the patients. Usually, the patients get an immediate sense of relief right after the session; they develop quickly and last for up to two weeks.

The magic is already there, you just might need to pay attention.

I know I can walk thru the world along the shore or among the trees focusing on the unimportant, and that's not really being alive, now is it??

So, while you are standing with an open notebook and pen, drench yourself in enthusiasm for life.

Believe in the listening, and the showing and now the knowing.

Keep your pen in the air!!

Healing hands:
Blessed are the hands that find those places rarely touched with memories cleverly hiding for so long from so much. Kind are hands that hear the stories words cannot even explain daring to soothe the hours and years of weariness and or pain full of Grace are those gentle hands that truly and deeply feel us for we do not know how much we hurt until a touch begins to heal us.

Got some appts open this weekend!!!

TECH Neck!!!! By no means a definitive list of muscles affected by tech neck, these are the posterior muscles most often linked to weakness due to a long-term forward head and hunched shoulder posture.

Deep cervical flexors, including the cervical spine’s C1-C7 vertebrae, weaken and lengthen when the chin tilts down and away from the neck, which is sometimes called chin poking.

Erector spinae muscles, attached to the lower cervical spine and upper thoracic spine, help the spine rotate and straighten up. When these muscles lengthen and lose strength, they’re less able to keep the neck and upper back from hunching forward.

Shoulder blade retractors, meaning the upper back’s middle trapezius and rhomboid muscles, help hold the shoulder blades back and the chest open. When weakened, these muscles collapse into a hunchback posture, which worsens tech neck symptoms.

While not a muscle, occipital neuralgia plays a key role in tech neck. These nerves, which exit the spine at the base of the neck, thread their way up the back of the neck and through several muscles until reaching the skull. Tense neck muscles have been known to put pressure on occipital nerves and exacerbate tech neck.

Cupping is a form of massage therapy which decompresses soft tissues using vacuum suction, unlike other forms of massage that compresses soft tissues. During cupping, the cup gently sucks to your skin and lifts underlying soft tissue into the cup.

How does it feel?

Cupping is very relaxing and generally not painful. The sensation that is experienced is a pulling of the skin as the cup is moved in a rolling fashion. Redness or a feeling of warmth is usually experienced after the release of the cup due to increase blood flow to the area.

Who can benefit?

Almost anyone can benefit from cupping. It is used to treat lack of mobility, tight muscles, scars and many diagnoses like headaches, tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and release of trigger points.

What to expect after treatment?

Mild soreness is to be expected from the buildup of lactic acid in the muscle tissue, but less soreness than a deep tissue massage. Bruises are to be expected and can last up to a week. Physical exertion and heat are not recommended after the treatment.

Neck Pain at Base of Skull!!!

Why am I feeling neck pain at the base of my skull?

There could be a number of reasons why you’re feeling neck pain at the base of your skull, and many people seek to treat this pain as quickly as possible since it can trigger headaches.

Neck pain is one of the most common types of pain among American adults. Medical research reports that at any given time, 5.8% of women and 4% of men are dealing with neck pain. Determining the cause of the neck pain at the base of your skull is the first step toward treating it. A Massage therapist can help you learn what could be causing your neck pain, and they can offer effective treatment for your neck pain, too. But I’m the meantime let’s roll over some more common causes !!!

Three common causes of neck pain at the base of the skull:

The base of the skull is where your cervical spine, or neck, connects to your head.

Feeling pain in this area can often be linked to conditions like these :

Suboccipital muscle issues —

The suboccipital muscles are a group of four neck muscles that run between the neck and skull. Their job is to help extend and rotate the head. Poor posture and other issues can lead to tension and pain in these muscles.

A herniated cervical disc —

Each of the seven cervical vertebrae has a disc that cushions it. These discs are named C1 through C7. A herniated cervical disc between C1 and C2 can trigger pain that feels like it’s right at the base of your skull.

Occipital neuralgia —

This issue occurs when one of your occipital nerves is pinched, irritated or damaged. Occipital neuralgia tends to cause throbbing, sharp or electriclike pain where your neck meets your skull. The pain may also radiate into one side of your scalp.

All of these reasons are reasons enough to come schedule a massage , I will do an assessment and I’ll point you in the right direction.!!!

Manual Lymphatic Drainage:

MLD is a highly specialised form of massage, which uses light, rhythmical, very precise hand movements, pressures and sequences and requires the therapist to develop a great degree of skill, having an intimate knowledge of the workings of the anatomy of the lymphatic system. The massage works at a skin level to influence the direction and speed of lymphatic flow, re-directing if necessary.

The lymphatic system is a complex one which integrates with other bodily systems, for example, the circulatory system and the urinary system. As well as playing a major part in immunity, it facilitates waste removal at cellular level and assists with bringing nutrients and oxygen to cells. Interstitial fluid, the fluid that bathes all cells, contains a rich soup of proteins, plasma, long chain fatty molecules, cell waste and debris and any molecules which are too big to pass into the venous system – these enter the lymphatic system and become 'lymph'.

The vessels of the lymphatic system begin as blind-ended lymph capillaries in the periphery in the layers of the skin, and progress into slightly larger vessels, then slightly larger again. These lymph vessels progress through the body passing through clearing stations called lymph nodes. We each have between 600 and 800 lymph nodes (a third of which are in the area of the head and neck), which range in size from a pinhead to a broad bean. They are arranged in clusters or chains and while we know where they are situated, in each person the exact arrangement is unique. Lymph nodes, among other things, filter the lymph fluid that passes through and re-absorb some of components to the blood stream while the rest of the Lymph passes along the vessels of the lymphatic system back to the thoracic ducts (at the base of the neck, under the collarbones) where the contents re-join the circulatory system, and go to the kidneys via the heart. The kidneys filter and process the blood and excrete the waste products as urine.

A treatment commences at the neck to clear the area and 'make space' for lymph to be brought there. The next parts of the sequence will depend entirely on why MLD is being performed and the particular needs of the individual. However, lymph follows pre-determined pathways on its journey to the thoracic ducts and is continuous – if space is made at the top of the chain, fluid from lower down can 'move up'. So areas are cleared for lymph to be brought to from other parts of the system. The lymphatic system does not have its own pump (unlike the circulation which has the heart) and relies on movement of muscles in the surrounding area to activate the collection of lymph from surrounding tissues. The act of inspiration acts as a trigger for the lymphatic system to 'empty' back into the circulatory system at the base of the neck.

The massage is, on the whole, a very light technique. This is because the practitioner is trying to influence vessels that are situated in the skin layers. It may be as well to point out here that Manual Lymph Drainage is NOT the same as some of the 'Lymph Drainage Massage' offered by, for example, sports or Swedish-massage therapists which can be a very heavy technique indeed. Yes, that kind of heavy massage will influence lymph drainage because it will increase circulation of blood to the area being massaged but may not be suitable for someone who has a compromised lymphatic system and it is not nearly as effective in moving fluid as MLD. MLD will remove fluid from tissues without first bringing extra load to the area in the form of circulation.

The aim of the MLD therapist is to restore equilibrium in the tissues and ensure that 'that which enters equals that which departs'. If the body is not in this state of equilibrium, and there is too much fluid in the tissues, they become soft and 'boggy' to the touch. If excess fluid is present it can interfere with cell nutrition – oxygen and nutrients will take longer to pass through the tissues and get from the bloodstream to the cells through the interstitial fluid. This will also mean that waste products from cell metabolism will take longer to move from cells to the transport system, which will remove them from the body. If the lymphatic system is functioning well, we feel well. There are many reasons for the Lymphatic system to be sluggish and not functioning well, leaving fluid static in the tissues. Pollution, toxins, poor nutrition, mucous formation, overload from previous viral or bacterial infections etc – these are all things that can give rise to cellular stagnation.

Hello Everyone!!

Who do you know that has Asthma ?

Numbers of studies have been done recently with all the Covid stuff going on and with that triggering lots of peoples BREATHING AND AIR FLOW obstruction.

The studies are now showing asthma symptoms can be lessened, the airwaves can flow with less difficulty after just a few months of getting weekly or bi- weekly massage.

BOOK WITH ME!!

I'VE GOT YOUR BACK!!

Amazing Grace....

I was born and raised in places all over New York for a portion of my childhood. Than my family moved to Springfield Missouri to start a farm. After years of doing this we realized it wasn’t for us and we later sold the Farm.

I learned a lot from the Farm Life and love hard work and also do love getting my hands dirty.

I always wanted to do Massage Therapy so I could help my mom not be in pain anymore (she had severe Sciatic Nerve pain she struggled with).

When we moved to "Town " in Missouri I chose to enroll in Professional Massage Training Center.
