Manual lymphatic drainage
A gentle, light massage technique, similar to the effect of a wave, involves manipulating lymph nodes and drainage. The goal is to stimulate the circulation of lymph and detoxify the body while strengthening the immune system. Manual lymphatic drainage is carried out with the fingers and palms of the hands all over the body following the direction of lymphatic circulation. he massage, aimed at complete lymphatic drainage, is a 90-minute session. It may take a few sessions before there are any apparent results.
Cupping massage is performed using dry containers in which a vacuum is created to cause physiological and mechanical changes inside a structure. This treatment helps to reduce pain, increase local circulation, increase tissue oxygenation and stretch or mobilize tissues. The marks left on the body following cupping treatments are normal and may be the result of broken blood capillaries, which will regenerate in a few days to weeks.

It’s excellent for combating fatigue, stress, cellulite, chronic constipation, poor blood and lymphatic circulation, nervous tension, neuralgia, as well as joint and muscle stiffness.

Foot reflexology is a method used to activate the body’s self-healing process by manually stimulating an area of the foot connected to an organ or part of the body by using pressure. The concept of foot reflexology is that the foot is an accurate representation of the human body. This method can relieve the foot and therefore the organ or part of the body targeted by the therapist. Foot reflexology is recommended for people suffering from pain or chronic diseases (diabetes, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, and severe arthritis) and reduces anxiety, stress, symptoms related to ADD and ADHD, in addition to reducing certain spinal pain (lumbar pain, neck pain, etc.).
