Salt Escape is introducing cupping, a new wellness service, with Dana Russell, a certified advanced cupping therapist, certified medical massage therapist and an active member of the National Association of Professional Women.
Cupping is a traditional, comfortable and effective treatment that uses negative pressure, or suction, rather than compression, for bodywork ranging from myofascial release to lymphatic drainage. Cupping rapidly facilitates rigid soft tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up adhesions and drains stagnation. It increases blood and lymph flow to skin and muscles in a way not possible with compression.
The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. Some say it is similar to acupuncture without the needles. Benefits of cupping include lymphatic drainage and fascia release; cellulite smoothing and toning; detoxifying tissues and adhesion removal; colon stimulation; spider vein and scar tissue lightening; arthritis; fibromyalgia; and sciatica.
Salt Escape is offering an introduction special of 50 minutes for $49 or a combo cupping and salt therapy session (45 minutes of each) for $80 ($100 value) by appointment. Location: 2100 Dallas Pkwy., Ste. 140, Plano. For more information, call 972-378-4945 or visit SaltEscape.com.
