Chronic Pain and Disability Massage
Massage has many positive benefits for you if you have Chronic Pain or Disability. Chronic pain can cause a lot of stress both mentally and physically in the body due to inflammation, restricted movement and discomfort. Massage is well known for reducing muscle tightness and soreness within your body as well as increasing circulation, improving sleep and minimizing the effects of inflammation and reducing pain and stress. People in wheelchairs or with limited mobility also benefit from massage as the muscles are weak and tight due to inactivity and the blood flow is less due to muscles and limbs not being as active. Massage will help by relaxing the overused muscles, improve circulation to the lesser used muscles and limbs, improve mobility and range of motion, reduce pain, reduce stress and stimulate weakened muscles. Massage will not strengthen weakened muscles but combined with complimentary exercise program will improve the strength of muscles and improve general daily living.

Cupping Therapy Massage
Cupping Massage with Knight and Kay is a combination of Therapeutic Massage and Cupping with gentle massage strokes and static and/or gliding cupping techniques using silicone cups for a gentle and more controlled suction. Cupping works on the fascia (connective tissue that surrounds your body and organs) using silicone cups that create a gentle suction to the skin to create negative pressure by lifting and stretching the fascia to allow new oxygenated and nutrient rich blood to the area. Cupping is a gentle and painless form of pain and trigger point (knots) release. Cupping does not leave bruising marks, the marks are an indication of the level of blood and Qi stagnation or toxin accumulation in your body. It is said that cupping shares the benefits of deep tissue massage without the pain but still benefiting muscle relaxation.
