60 , 90, or 120 Minute Sessions
Everyone loves a great massage! Massage Therapy is our top service here at Peaceful Warriors. We have been serving St. Pete for the past 10 years through therapeutic massage & bodywork. Our philosophy on massage therapy is more clinical and critical than most other massage therapy offices. We address the dysfunction of the body, this is what currently hurts and also addressing compensation issues in the surrounding musculature and tissue in order to optimize the body’s natural tendency to heal itself. The modalities in our LMT’s toolbox include: Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Range of Motion/Stretching, etc. Most sessions will not likely be full body. Length of the massage ranges from 60 to 90 minutes depending on your selection. This is our standard for massage here in our office, and each session is custom fit to your body and lifestyle.
60 or 90 Minute Sessions
Similar to the Therapeutic Massage, this focus’ on your body’s needs and your lifestyle in addressing pain and discomfort in the body. However, it is softer and more relaxing than the Therapeutic Massage. This is a great option for clients who prefer softer massages or need to mentally relax before they can physically relax.
MEDICUPPING / CUPPING
30 or 60 Minute Sessions
Vacuum Therapy or Cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment remaining favored by millions of people worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable, and remarkably effective for many health disorders. This session is specifically to address scar tissue and pre/post-surgery of a specific body part.
Importantly there are three kinds of cupping that we offer:
Medicupping is performed by a certified therapist with a Medicupping machine that gently pulls and releases the tissue to bring circulation and lift the muscle. This method leaves little to no marks on the skin as it isn’t static. But may be red from pulling blood/circulation to those muscles.
Cupping, or static cupping, is more like what is pictured to the right. Where it is similar to the above Medicupping but manual/static and the cups stay where the LMT places it and it pulls up the muscle and circulation but is more likely to leave suction marks or what appears to be similar to ‘bruising’.
Our Acupuncturist, Dr. Angelina Nagassar, offers two kinds of cupping. She offers the same cupping as above, the static cupping, and a variation of it called Fire Cupping. It is used with glass cups and flame to produce the natural suction from the heat of the flame. There is no burning or flame to the skin, just placed within the glass cup then the cup is placed on the skin to be lifted and suctioned gently into the glass cup.
