We will try to find the cause of the problem and with that a way to work with it to get the best result.
A single session of massage therapy can reduce "state anxiety" (a reaction to a particular situation), blood pressure, and heart rate, and multiple sessions can reduce "trait anxiety" (general anxiety-proneness), depression, and pain. Massage is also useful for chronic low-back pain as well as cancer patients trying to relieve pain and improve their mood.
There are numerous theories about how massage therapy may affect the body. For example, the "gate control theory" suggests that massage may provide stimulation that helps to block pain signals sent to the brain. Other theories suggest that massage might stimulate the release of certain chemicals in the body, such as serotonin or endorphins, or cause beneficial mechanical changes in the body.
In Swedish massage we use long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping. Sports massage is similar to Swedish massage, adapted specifically to the needs of athletes. Among the many other examples are deep tissue massage and trigger point massage, which focuses on myofascial trigger points - muscle "knots" that are painful when pressed and can cause symptoms elsewhere in the body.
We always encourage our clients to come to our studio for any Therapy Treatment, although we are also happy to do home visits as well.
It is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localised pressure by a vacuum. The Chinese have been practicing this for thousands of years by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups. Nowadays, cupping sets use suction to create the vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and promote healing in that area.
Meridians (energy flows) are found through every body part, tissue, and organ. Cupping therapy is mainly performed on one's back because there are many acupuncture points on your back and a lot of stagnated energy. When these meridians are opened, the internal energy is able to flow through the whole body
Used as cupping massage the suction created can penetrate deep into your bodys tissues causing them to release harmful toxins. It triggers the lymphatic system, clears the blood vessels, and stretches and activates the skin.
If body and mind are in harmony then the energy is in flow and nothing can harm the body. When the energy lines (Meridians) are in harmony, our body is always capable of healing itself. Imbalances from outside or inside our body can affect this harmony. Acupuncture massage is a way to regulate and bring harmony back into our body so the energy can flow and our self-defence system can become fully active.
Developed in the 1950's by German engineer and naval architect Willy Penzel, it is a therapy based on the oldest Meridian therapy, a combination of ancient Asian knowledge (TCM) and modern western manual therapeutic techniques. Illness is disharmony in the energy-flow. In every treatment not only are the symptoms of illness treated, the whole body, with it's possible multiple dysfunctions will be influenced in a positive way.
After checking the energy status the meridians are massaged with a special Massage utensile out of Titanium so that blocked areas can start flowing again and your Meridians get into Harmony.
The self-healing mechanisms get activated through putting the
balance of the energy in all of the meridians into place. In one therapy session you treat the whole organism, low energy
areas get filled up and full areas get levelled out, so a harmonising of the energy circuit takes place and the healing can progress.

Breathing Therapy for Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis
Autogenic Drainage (AD) clears secretions further down the airways than can be reached by a cough. This method of airway clearance keeps the airways open. Autogenic Drainage uses a combination of breathing techniques at different levels to move the secretions up to where they can be "huff" coughed out.
The first level is unsticking the mucus with a low-lung volume breathing, then collecting the secretions with mid-volume breathing, and finally removing the secretions with "huff" coughing at a higher level.
This method of airway clearance needs to be taught to the patient and requires much discipline and concentration when performing. It has the advantage of allowing total independence; no equipment or other people are necessary to complete this form of airway clearance.
It is a very gentle procedure; if you are doing AD correctly you will not cough violently. This gentler form of therapy is wonderful for people who are prone to hemoptysis.
There are a variety of breathing techniques that have been developed for use in patients with cystic fibrosis and other breathing related disorders to help clear mucus from airway passages in the lungs. These techniques include:
Drainage and percussion
Positive expiratory pressure methods
High-frequency airway oscillation
High-frequency chest wall oscillation
