Touching Essence™

Cupping Service


Cupping is an ancient method of healing that has proven to be especially effective for treating acute and chronic back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain, sprains and swellings, digestive disorders, colds and flu, bronchitis, allergies, asthma, immune disorders, neurological disorders and many more. Special silicone or glass cups, when placed on the skin create a strong pulling force due to their vacuum effect. The suction is said to draw out toxins and help relieve pain, by increasing blood flow and oxygen in the tissues. This can gently break up adhesions and reduce scar tissue.

While floating effortlessly, you receive gentle movements and stretches to create ease in body, stillness in mind and peace within.

Aquatic Bodywork sessions can be done in your pool or in a prearranged location.

"Bianca has a magical touch, using the nurturing long Esalen strokes plus just the right amount of pressure.  Gently, lovingly, she “listens” for what is called for and tenderly attends to all areas while being sure to cover the entirety so that nothing is missed. Bianca seems always to intuitively know just what the body needs. I have had many massages in my lifetime, and Bianca is by far the best.  I feel very fortunate to have found her!"
