Experience the Amazing Benefits of Reiki and Cupping

Regular, professional massages can have a wonderfully positive effect on your overall wellness. And when you open up your treatment to other options like reiki and cupping, you can expand those effects and really make a difference in the way you feel. The expert massage therapists at The Glam Room are thrilled to provide these new options to expand your access to better wellness.


What is Reiki?

Reiki is much more than a massage technique. It’s a form of energy healing from Japan that was brought to Hawaii, and eventually the rest of the United States, in the late 1930s by a Japanese monk Mikao Usui. Reiki uses the hands, in both light touches and over the body, as a way to transmit universal life energy to the person seeking care.

Your first Reiki session appointment will include a conversation with your Glam Room Reiki practitioner to discuss the process and what you can expect from your sessions. The session itself is very relaxing, and sometimes you’ll experience sensations like tingling or heat, or you might even experience memories. It’s important to relax and let the experience happen as you absorb the healing energy.

Reiki is an effective way to help manage symptoms of disease or relieve stress, whether it’s from everyday life or a sudden, stressful event. Reiki has several benefits for your health, including:

  • Relief from pain and fatigue
  • Stress and anxiety relief 
  • Depression treatment
  • Better mood and enhanced wellbeing
  • Fewer headaches and better sleep
  • And much more

What is cupping?

Cupping therapy is an ancient technique that dates back as far as 1500 BC to ancient Egypt. Cupping is a form of alternative medicine that uses suction in heated cups placed strategically on the body to help alleviate symptoms of disease and ease stress. It works because it improves blood circulation, lowers inflammation, and works as a type of muscle-relaxing massage. 

During your cupping therapy session, your Glam Room cupping practitioner will place heated cups on your skin. The heat forms a vacuum in the cups that makes cupping effective. Following your session, your practitioner will place ointments on the skin.

Cupping therapy is used to treat a wide variety of symptoms and has many wellness benefits, such as:

  • Eased muscle aches and pains
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Fewer migraines and headaches
  • Less anxiety and depression
  • Less congestion from allergies
  • Reduced pain from arthritis or fibromyalgia 
  • And much more

How do I know if Reiki or Cupping therapy is right for me?

It all starts with a consultation from a professional massage therapist at The Glam Room. Each individual has different needs, so your massage therapy program will be different from everyone else’s. The important thing is to stick to a regular massage therapy schedule, whether it includes Reiki, Cupping therapy, or other massage therapy techniques. Although you’ll experience many positive benefits after just one session, those benefits increase with frequency. Once your Glam Room massage therapist designs a treatment program for you, it’s easy to schedule your regular appointments for optimal results.
