Interested in Cupping?
Massage cupping is a hot topic in the media right now because of Michael Phelps' round bruising at the Olympics. I've been using cupping for several years to improve circulation and the condition of myofascial tissue. I just took a new class on cupping this weekend and learned about cupping used with stretching as well as focused neck cupping with the client laying on their side. The cupping can be intense, but it also feels wonderful. Schedule your massage session and let me know that you want to include cupping in the treatment!
What is the buzz about Fasciablasting?
Athletes, celebrities and everyday people have been raving about the fasciablaster. It is so popular that the smaller version of the tool is sold out, and you need to get on a waiting list to even be considered to be allowed to buy one. I've been using the fasciablaster for about a month and have been amazed at it's ability to open up bound up areas.

Notice that Ashley Black reports that the fasciablaster "pops" fat cells. While I don't think that is the true dynamic, it certainly increases circulation. This may be an important aspect of weight loss. Many, many users of this tool are convinced that it helps them lose weight.
