Cupping Therapy Now Available

Cupping Therapy

This therapy, like massage, creates space and separation in the tissues that allows the therapist to work more effectively and comfortably on the client.

  • Cupping Therapy is a specific set of movements that the trained practitioner uses in different combinations to quickly facilitate elimination of debris and release of rigid soft tissues.
  • The movements and techniques stay within the boundaries of professional licensing and may be adapted to almost any modality that the therapist has training in.


Massage Cupping Therapy is a more commonly used tool for massage therapists and other healthcare practitioners. The movements are specific to bodywork and stay within the boundaries of professional licensing. Before applying the cup, the therapist will administer oil or lotion to facilitate smooth movement, since the cup is kept active and is not left stationary on the client’s body. The entire back may be treated, including the neck, shoulders, middle and lower back, and sacral area. The hip and thigh areas may also be treated, and abdominal Massage Cupping bodywork feels just incredible. Almost every area of the body responds to this unique treatment.

Acupuncture Availability


Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has been practiced for centuries. It’s based on the theory that energy, called chi (say “chee”), flows through and around your body along pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists believe that illness occurs when something blocks or unbalances your chi. Acupuncture is a way to unblock or influence chi and help it flow back into balance.

These treatments stimulate the body’s natural resources, relying upon the body’s innate ability to heal itself. We believe prevention is best and Chinese Medicine can detect and adjust subtle imbalances in our bodies before they become illness. We work closely with each individual to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for them.

Joanna, Acupuncturist, is available at Journeys Healing & Wellness Center on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00-4:00pm. She has a very flexible schedule and may have different openings available as well.

If you are interested in an appointment or have any questions please contact Joanna at 847-975-2571 or email her at
