Cupping is an ancient method that can be used to stretch fascia and soft tissues lifting and opening space at the joints while utilizing negative pressure.
Negative pressure will move the connective tissue and increase local blood circulation, just as positive pressure does, but cupping creates space between the sticky layers that compress the nerves running through them and provides pain relief.
I primarily use cupping in areas where positive pressure is painful, and I start with very light suction and move very slowly, often letting the cup remain on a muscle attachment for 1-2 minutes while I engage myofacial release around it.
Are you in chronic pain? Discover how, in 6 short weeks, we’ll take you on a massage journey that will finally break through your pain cycle, align joints & retrain muscles to give you long-lasting flexibility, mobility, and range-of-motion!
Unlock your muscles' full potential with our personalized 6-week program for chronic pain issues, performance improvement plans, or an overall wellness boost. Show your body its full range of motion, retrain stressed areas, and promote healthier muscle memory for long-term health.
When you tell us about yourself, your hobbies, and your lifestyle, there are certain things we already know about your muscles. (Trust us: we're the professionals.) During our first session, we target what's hurting and what's not working. Then, we develop a realistic plan to overcome those pains.
You'll feel better afterwards, but your body's pretty stubborn. By the time the pain's back, we'll be around for session #2.
Since our massages go 20 minutes longer than the average, we have time to figure out how your muscles respond to certain treatments and techniques. Our intro sessions are all about understanding what works (versus what doesn't) up and down your kinetic chain.
The next time you get on the table, it's always quicker to find that relief.
Each week, you're not just getting a relaxing, healing massage. We're also giving your muscles a small training session. For quite some time, they've been locked in a vicious pain cycle.
We take tight, contracted muscles and introduce them to their full ranges of motion so they're comfortable at their natural resting length. With every passing week, you'll step off the table feeling more and more like your old self.
Just like any training program, consistency helps maintain results. We don't want you or your muscles to go backwards after 6 weeks of hard work. Once you've had a chance to reset and relax in your "new" normal, we'll develop an ongoing massage maintenance plan for peak results.
As an Osteopathic physician myself, I can vouch for Rod’s professional approach to everything he does, as well as his therapeutic touch: I can tell he contacts the tissues with respect and active listening, only taking them as far as they are ready to go.
Absolutely an outstanding experience. Perfect Touch Massage has the perfect Touch in creating a plan that addresses those specific needs for oneself. It was a wonderful experience and well done. Very experienced, professional and thorough. To top off the experience the home convenience factor - no travel necessary- go from the table to the couch!
As a professional in the health and wellness industry, I definitely see the value in massage - Rod’s services in particular. I saw a noticeable difference in my range of motion as soon as I stood up and into the next few days from this service. His massages are truly beneficial and it’s easy to see that he puts a ton of effort into providing the best experience possible for his clients.
The 6 week to wellness has allowed for a more sustainable relief as the knots start to work out and then the care is reinforced repeatedly resulting in going from super sore all the time to actually feeling good like I could keep going and going with no pain.
