Cellulite Reduction Cupping
In this treatment session the therapist will focus not only on the full body, but specific problem areas at the clients request. This treatment goes deeper than the lymph channels, the pressure used causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Cellulite reduction cupping also eases the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, the fluid build up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free, healthy appearance.

Immune Boost Massage
The treatment starts with hot towels across the face and chest that have been misted with Doterra’s therapeutic grade essential oils relax as we do a light lymphatic treatment on your face, neck, and chest to open up the channels and clear any stagnant lymph. Once the channels have been cleared, we begin a relaxing neck and scalp massage using our special immune boost lotion. This process will alleviate tension in the targeted areas. We then incorporate light cupping across the chest to open up the lungs, giving you stronger breathes and eliminating tightness. Continuing the session into your abdominal area as the therapist uses hot towels to help the intestines start to relax. Take some nice deep breathes and the therapist will start opening up the cisterna chyli. The cisterna is a cluster of three vessels that handles the waste removal from both of your legs and your digestive system and your male or female pelvic organs. When this vessel gets clogged it will create bloating and digestive pain, constipation, hip pain, knee pain and can be the reason for any pain that you feel from your rib cage down. Once the cisterna chyli is open the therapist will do a combination of effleurage strokes and cupping therapy to create space within the tissues and release any areas that are restrictive. This part of the treatment is finished with a hot neck wrap or heating pad on the belly. Then the session is finished by using the immune system lotion and giving a relaxing foot massage to allow the essential oils to seep into the bottom of your feet. There the essential oils will effectively absorb into the bloodstream and defend your body against potential toxins.
