Bodywork Cupping

Massage Therapy cupping

What is Bodywork Cupping?

  • Alternative therapy that involves the placement of cups on the skin to create suction.

  • The suction creates a negative pressure meant to bring blood to the surface stimulating the blood capillary exchange while inducing a positive inflammatory response to promote the healing process.

  • The cups may be used stationary or dynamic.

Types of Cups

  • Silicone

  • Plastic

  • Glass 

Benefits of Bodywork Cupping

  • Improves circulation

  • Increases mobility and range of motion

  • Reduces/Releases trigger points

  • Softens scar tissue

What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle manual treatment that involves manipulation of the superficial lymphatic system which is located underneath the skin and above the fascia. 

  • MLD is not to be confused with massage; massage is to knead, working with fascia and past the fascia into the muscle

The Lymphatic System

  • The Lymphatic System  is part of the immune system
  • It is a uni-directional transportation system purposed to absorb and filter substances that are unable to be reabsorbed by the circulatory system.

  • Lymphatic Fluid is absorbed in the interstitial spaces by the lymphatic capillaries. The lymph fluid moves through the valves located in the lymphatic collectors by means of skeletal muscle and joint movement. 

  • Lymph Fluid travels towards lymph nodes and through the nodes to be filtered; this is where toxins are captured and destroyed. 

  •  The lymph fluid travels via lymphatic collectors through lymph nodes until it reaches the subclavian veins where the filtered lymph fluid is reabsorbed into the venous system.

Benefits of Manual Lymphatic Drainage

  • Reduces edema

  • Enhances venous flow

  • Analgesic

  • Promotes parasympathetic response

  • Increase in lymph production/Increase in lymph flow

"Respect the bodies healing process"

Massage therapy post-surgical lymphatic drainage

Why is MLD important Pre Surgery

  • Important to stimulate the lymphatic system and clear any underlying fluid retention

  • Once the body undergoes surgery it will naturally activate an inflammatory response

  • Addressing and preparing the body pre-surgery can improve the healing process post-surgery

Why is MLD important Post Surgery

  • A side effect of surgery is swelling, which is the bodies normal inflammatory response that is part of the healing process

  • MLD assists the healing process by reducing swelling, fluid retention, and bruising by increasing the removal of cellular debris and other waste from the traumatized area

  • Reduces scar formation and build-up of fibrotic nodules

  • Improves skin texture and tone by boosting healing responses

  • Decreases the risk of infection by improving the immune response

  • Decreases pain, sensitivity, and touch-avoidance 

How soon should MLD start Post Surgery?

  • MLD may start as early as 24 hours post-surgery for orthopedic patients
  • MLD may start as early as 24-48 hours post surgery for Cosmetic/Reconstructive patients depending on surgery

How often should a patient recieve MLD Post Surgery?

  • As frequently as possible immediately after surgery is ideal

  • At least 3-times a week depending on inflammation and bruising 

  • Depending on the patient's healing process the amount of sessions will vary moving up to and forward 40+ days past surgery

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle non-invasive therapy that assesses the physiological system. By facilitating the healing process, this technique allows the body to modify and correct restrictions to improve wellness and enhance the body's self-correcting and self-regulating mechanism.

What is the CranioSacral System?

The CranioSacral System consists of the physiological components that are responsible for the production, circulation, and  re-absorption of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

Physiological Components of the CranioSacral System

  • Ventricular system that produces cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)

  • Dural Membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord

  • Bony and Fascial membranous attachments

What Conditions Can Craniosacral Therapy Help?

  • Migraines and Headaches

  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain

  • TMJ Syndrome

  • Scoliosis

  • Fibromyalgia 

  • Orthopedic Problems

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Stress and Tension-Related Disorders

  • And Many Other Conditions

What can I expect from a Craniosacral Therapy Session?

  • Quiet private setting

  • Fully clothed

  • Therapist will asses various parts of the body to monitor the central nervous system

  • Delicate manual techniques are then used to release problematic areas resulting in improvement of the central nervous system
