Metamorphic Technique: A relative of reflexology. The foot is massaged along the spinal reflex area, from the tip of the big toe to the heel. The theory is that traumas that take place from the moment of conception are held within the memory of every cell in the body. The energy that was involved in creating the old patterns is released and can be used to create new patterns. It is your own life force that guides the outcome. This is gentle, relaxing and transforming. The spine itself can also be treated as well as the reflex points on the head.

Massage Cupping: Massage cupping is a modified version of the common practice of cupping therapy, used in traditional Chinese medicine. Through suction, negative pressure and movement, massage cupping releases rigid soft tissue; drains excess fluids and toxins; loosens adhesions and lifts connective tissue; and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles.
Includes Massage Cupping and a body wrap. This is a wonderful treatment for weight loss, reducing cellulite and body mass, as well as toning tissue. This can also be used to calm the nervous system, or energize you. A very light suction cup massage encourages drainage, while a heavier application can be used to stimulate circulation and loosen adhesions or "dimpling." Once the body has been treated with the cupping method, specific essential oil formulas, seaweed or mud masques are applied for each client's goals and the client is wrapped up. While the client is resting, a face cupping treatment or a foot
treatment will be given. For weight loss and decreasing body mass, this is generally done in a series of 8. It can also be done as a single treatment, using product for any specific issue.
