A therapeutic treatment used in massage therapy that is considered an ancient form of alternative medicine is cupping .  Silicone cups are placed on the skin to promote circulation and the benefits are tremendous!
Usually a first time attempt at cupping should be only one or two to evaluate how the skin and body react.  A follow up session can include more cups and be incorporated into the rest of the massage.  
This is a compliment to a deeper tissue session for injury recovery and scar tissue repair.  
Memorable massage experiences can recharge our batteries and give us a renewed sense of self.  Feelings of connectedness with positive emotions and a lift in spirits.
