Massage cupping is a technique that uses suction on the surface of the skin to draw inflammation and stagnation from the body to the surface where it is then flushed away in the lymph and circulatory systems. Some of the benefits of massage cupping include but are not limited to:
Drains & Moves Fluids
Nervous System Sedation
Stretches Muscles and Connective Tissue
Loosens Adhesions in the Fascia
Cupping is gentle yet profoundly effective on the physical and mental bodies. Five minutes of cupping is equal to 30 minutes of deep tissue massage and can affect the tissue up to 4 inches into the body.

"Dynamic Fascial ResponseTM is a blend of structural therapies and foundational philosophy that produce a dialog of activation and response between the practitioner and the fascia. The response in the fascia releases holding patterns in the fascial body and, as a result, both physiological and emotional changes occur. This method resources and re-purposes stuck patterns and can heal trauma, relieve pain, improve posture and health and above all promote peace." -Chula Gemignani, CMT and Instructor and creator and of the DFRTM Technique.
"Over the years I have had many wonderful massages from Brooke. In 2009 she was instrumental in helping me recover from a car accident in which my car was totaled and I had a concussion as well as whiplash. Her work is extremely skilled clinically while also feeling nurturing and relaxing, not an easy result to achieve! I have also heard wonderful things about her pregnancy massages from mutual clients. I do not hesitate to recommend her highly to anyone who needs a great massage therapist!" -J.G.
