Dynamic Cupping: Dynamic cupping is effective in reducing pain, increasing function, increasing flexibility, and improving patient’s quality of life. Medical grade silicon cups are placed on the skin and suction is created by depressing the cup. Gliding over the skin with the use of massage oil, the cup is moved by weak suction along the area of muscle and myofascial tissue that needs to be released. This technique uses a combination of massage movements, joint movements and the negative pressure created by proper use of the cups to achieve massage benefits.
Brenda is a full member in good standing with the CMMOTA (Canadian Massage & Manual Osteopathic Therapists Association) and has served on the board of directors for the AMTWP. In her spare time, Brenda enjoys frequent hikes in parks around Calgary during the winter, as well as in The Rocky Mountains and surrounding areas during the summer months.
