Can I add services to enhance my massage therapy experience?

Yes, at Genesis our Massage Therapist is versed in different techniques such a cupping, hot stone massage, Gua Sha, and facia blasting.

Cupping is a technique that uses cups that create suction on areas on the skin to reduce muscle pain and inflammation. This allows for an increase in blood flow to the affected area thus aiding in recovery. Hot Stone Massage uses stones that are heated and placed on the body for massage.  The heat from stones allows for increased blood flow to certain areas, decreases stress, relieves tension in the muscles, and promotes overall relaxation. Gua Sha is a technique that uses a gua massage tool. The tool is used to scrape against the skin to promote microcirculation within the skin. This increases blood flow to the treated area. Fascia Blasting is hands-on manipulation that loosens and relaxes the tissue of the skin allowing for an increase in blood flow to the treated area. This technique reduces pain of the affected area and can improve the overall aesthetic look by reducing cellulite.
