Cupping therapy is an ancient form of Chinese Medicine. ‘Cups’ are placed on the skin to create suction. Different practitioners have different techniques, but only qualified Chinese Medical Practitioners may use ‘hot cupping’. This involves lighting a flame inside the cup to create a vacuum. The heat does not come into contact with the skin at any stage, it merely ensures an effective vacuum on the skin.
At Aboli, hot cupping is combined with Swedish massage techniques, to provide the most beneficial and relaxing experience.
Cupping is amazing for muscular pain, particularly on the back and although it has a similar effect to a sports massage, it does not leave you feeling tender or sore in anyway afterwards. It is also deeply relaxing and carries all of the benefits of a holistic or deep tissue massage
Pregnancy Massage is no different to Swedish/Holistic massage in its range of benefits. And the techniques used here are very similar to that of a general massage. The difference however is in positioning and also in its focus. There are certain circumstances where massage is not recommended in pregnancy such as in diabetes or if there is extreme nausea; but in general, it can really help to aid relaxation, increase circulation and mobilise joints. It can also help to reduce leg cramps, back pain and oedema.
The main benefit of Baby Massage is its role in enhancing the bonding process between parent and baby. Appointments focus on showing parents how to massage their own babies. A tool they will have for life. Baby Massage also holds all of the benefits of Holistic massage and is particularly helpful in improving any digestive problems that baby may have.
