Target Area Massage (NOT A FULL BODY)

Target Area (AKA "Deep Tissue") refers to a specific area of tissue that is "stuck" deeper in the body, not the pressure that is used. You get to decide just how heavy the pressure will be. This is NOT a full-body massage. This massage begins with heat (hot packs or hot stones) and an analgesic liniment. The purpose of this treatment is to remove adhesions in soft tissue by using compressive, elongating force. Therapeutic inflammation may occur with noticeable tenderness & reduced performance for up to 48 hours.

FOR CUPPING, PLEASE BOOK "MASSAGE WITH MELISSA" FOR 30-90 MINUTES. MediCupping™ is 3-5 times more effective than the Traditional Deep Tissue Massage. This is NOT a hands-on treatment. MediCupping™ uses a machine attached to glass or plastic cups (laid on your skin) to create suction and pumping movements. This creates a soothing, consistent, and effective treatment for deeper soft tissue without strain on the client. MediCupping™ can be used as an adjunct therapy to chiropractic manipulations, medical protocols, and surgical recovery. One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the “separation” that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue and eliminates old waste and congestion. Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris, the use of suction is invaluable in releasing soft tissue, scars, and restricted fascia. During this treatment, we may also use heat, stationary cups, liniment, percussive therapy, muscle scraping, and magnetic acupressure cups. For more information, please visit:

This covers simple to complex tapings (of one area) to address such issues as pain, tight muscles, weak muscles, scars, varicosities, bruising and swelling. You must either shave 24 hours prior to taping or use clippers to any hair in the area. Please remove any tape 24 hours prior to a new taping to reduce skin irritation.

Lymphatic drainage is key to resisting germs that cause colds, flus and other infections. It’s simple: if your lymph nodes are clear, they can deal with new germ-invaders.
