In today’s high stress culture, most people have a sedentary lifestyle sitting slouched over their computer or smartphone looking like a human question mark- their heads jutting forward, shoulders rounded and getting close to their ears and their stomachs getting close to their knees.
Does this sound familiar?
Now you’re probably familiar with the therapeutic benefits of Deep Tissue Massage and how it loosens knots, increases range of motion, reduces pain and inflammation. When I add Cupping to my massage session, I’m able to get even faster results with less pain.
Cupping along the spine stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system to producing a relaxing and sedating effect on the recipient, and it’s not uncommon for them to fall asleep.
When treating clients who suffer with low back pain, the silicone cups allow me to go deep without causing my clients pain.
The powerful suction of Cupping can lift and release adhesions deep in the rotator cuff muscles, and even help thaw a frozen shoulder making it more mobile.
Cupping has been around for thousands of years and involves suction, also known as negative pressure.
The silicone cups literally become an extension of my hands, allowing me to decompress and create negative pressure, which seamlessly lifts and releases muscle adhesions versus performing the classic compression of massage.
Achieving these profound their therapeutic results is simply not possible with hands alone. It’s said that 5 minutes of cupping is equivalent to 30 minutes of a deep tissue massage. I’m able to achieve immediate results bringing a pain scale of 9 to a 1 or 2 in a matter of minutes.
Morgan Massage is by far the best massage therapy I have found, and I’ve been to many massage therapists over the past 20 years. My profession has me working at a computer all day, and I developed chronic upper back/neck pain and stiffness many years ago. I went to doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors, and even tried acupuncture. Nothing helped until I found Morgan Massage and started getting regular deep tissue massages to break up the tension and relax the muscles in my back. Thanks to Morgan, I no longer have issues with my upper back or neck, even though I still work at a computer all day.
The key for me has been to continue a routine of regular deep tissue massage, and I have been going to Morgan now for over 6 years. My life is completely different because of the mobility and lack of pain I now have in my back. Massage therapy has become a significant part of my overall health, and I plan to continue because regular massage keeps me healthy, active and pain free.
Morgan is so effective because he listens to his clients. He is sensitive to the varying needs of each individual client, rather than just applying a technique across the board. The environment is comfortable and relaxing, and I always feel amazing after each session. Regular massage from Morgan is one of the best things I do for myself, and I recommend Morgan Massage without hesitation!
