Cupping Massage Now Available at Botanica Day Spa in Clearwater, FL

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Botanica Day Spa recently announced the addition of massage cupping to their full spa services menu along with a special introductory offer for the service. The technique, based on ancient traditional Chinese medicine, uses small glass cups to create a suctioning of tissue that is lifted up into the cup at a comfortable but effective pressure. The cups are then moved in a gliding motion across the skin to engage more tissue. In contrast, traditional massage primarily uses compression techniques which press down into the tissue. The combination of both modalities opens up a fuller spectrum of techniques with which the therapist can aid the body in achieving greater levels of healing. Clients receiving their first cupping massage at Botanica can now get 50% off the service until September 30th.

Botanica’s licensed massage therapists conduct an in-person consultation with the client prior to the treatment to discuss problematic areas as well as any potential contraindications. The therapist may focus the cupping massage in a variety or combination of different trouble spots including the back, neck, shoulders, stomach, legs and even the face. The technique is praised for its health and wellness benefits, targeting:

  •     Lymphatic drainage
  •     Improved circulation
  •     Reduced inflammation
  •     Release of deep tissue stiffness
  •     Respiratory clearing
  •     Reduced visibility of cellulite

A randomized controlled trial conducted in 2012, published in the online journal PLoS One, analyzed the use of cupping massage in 61 patients with neck pain over a 12-week period. After the period of treatment, patients showed significant decreases in pain as well as favorable improvements of inner peace and vitality.

I feel like it achieved the same results if not better than a deep tissue massage, but in a quarter of the time,” said Christine Wheaton, a long-time client of Botanica’s. “I felt loose after the cupping massage and had range in my shoulders and neck that I didn’t have before. I loved it.”

Botanica is offering first-time cupping massage clients a 50% discount on the service. Due to its popularity, owner and aesthetician Gen Obolensky said they have decided to extend the August special to the end of September so more people can be introduced to the therapy. “It has definitely been one of our more popular services,” she said. “Clients generally come in very curious about it—maybe they saw a picture on our Facebook page or a friend told them about it, and they leave feeling really pleased with the results.”

Obolensky also noted that cupping massage can be enjoyable for those who prefer intense pressure during a massage, but the pressure is scalable for those who may be more sensitive and prefer a lighter touch, “Our therapists specializing in cupping techniques provide a fully individualized, unique experience specific to your preferences and areas you wish to target with the treatment.”

Additional discounts and specials happening at the spa this month can be found on their website. To learn more about cupping massage or to schedule an appointment, call 727-441-1711 or visit them online to book an appointment and take advantage of the 50% discount.
