What's New At Elan?

Our massage therapist, Annie, has recently taken a continuing education course in oncology massage and is ready to start seeing clients who are undergoing cancer treatment.

Studies have shown that massage and the healing power of touch can help alleviate some of the side effects of cancer treatments. Stress, anxiety, depression, pain, nausea, and fatigue can all be decreased by massage. In fact, many cancer treatment centers are offering massage therapy as a complimentary treatment. Oncology massage is a safe form of massage that allows clients who are receiving cancer treatments to experience the stress-reducing effects of massage therapy. Each massage will be customized to each client’s specific needs to ensure comfortability.

Cupping

 

Cupping is a healing method that uses cups placed on the body to create suction. There are several forms of cupping using glass, bamboo or silicone cups. At Elan, we use silicone cups that are gently squeezed to create a range of suction from the gentlest, which allow for movement across the body, to deeper suction for a more targeted treatment. 

  • All cupping sessions will incorporate traditional compression massage techniques. The combination of these two modalities will help promote healing and relief.

  • First time cupping clients should have an introductory session of 10 to 15 minutes of light suction to asses how their body responds. 

  • Anyone receiving cupping should be aware of the potential for marks being left on the body. These marks are not painful and are not bruises. They can last anywhere from a few minutes to a few weeks, depending on the body's response and the intensity of the suction. If you do have concerns talk to your therapist for further information.

There are a few contraindications for cupping including, but not limited to:

  • Deep vein thrombosis

  • Congestive heart failure

  • Renal failure

  • Bleeding disorders

  • Active cancer treatments

  • If using blood thinners, check with your health care provider
