Cupping is like the inverse of massage - rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. For most clients, this is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation .
By drawing a smooth edged instrument across the skin where an injury or imbalance resides, a distinctive reddening of the skin, known as "sha" can be observed. This is 'colouration' is a positive response and brings immediate and lasting benefits by reducing inflammation, coldness, tightness and pain from both the superficial and deeper levels of the body.
Carolina Thai Healing Arts offers professional Thai massage, Cupping massage therapy, Acupressure, Reflexology, and our signature East meets West massage.
Experience the deep relaxation and healing that a Thai massage will bring into your life. This ancient healing art from Thailand is performed on a comfortable floor mat while fully clothed. Sometimes we use hand crafted herbal compresses, traditional balms, liniments or cups to release areas of pain and congestion.
Energy lines (Sen in Thai, similar to meridians in Chinese medicine) are unblocked and soothed, joints are moved through their range of motions and muscle tension is released with rhythmic compression, stretching and rocking motions. Thai massage is truly a unique and wondrous therapeutic art.

Varying degrees of pressure will be applied to pressure points and energy lines. We may also include stretches and range of motion to begin to remove tension and accumulated tightness in your muscles.
This massage includes the best of both Eastern and Western massage to leave you relaxed and rejuvenated.
Relax, relief, balance
During your therapeutic massage, we may use acupressure points to assist in the release of tension. These points along sen lines (similar to meridian lines) are the access points to remove blockages and congestion.
Sen lines are like rivers throughout your body. These lines should freely allow the movement of blood, nerve impulses, tendons, ligaments, and muscles fibers. Sometimes a "kink" or damn forms in these movement pathways which then causes pain and dis-function. Acupressure points give your therapist access to remove these blockages so your body can move back into balance.
