After 15 years of practice as a licensed massage therapist in Charleston, SC, Aija (Atmah Ja) has assimilated a range of techniques, making her a specialist in the field of mind-body medicine, yoga, and meditation.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Aija and her incredible expertise offering massage therapy at Coastal Body Studio.
Aija has traveled across multiple continents so she can study with the masters who recognize the inherent, regenerative intelligence of the body.
On one of those expeditions over a decade ago, she went to Thailand, where she first encountered fire cupping and apprenticed there with a Thai medicine man. Several years later, back in the United States, she completed her certification in medical massage cupping and now integrates into her practice the limitless potential cupping can offer her clients.
Aija is one of the few therapists to offer cupping in Charleston, and we are thrilled she has chosen to practice this ancient art at Coastal Body Studio.
While cupping has been around for centuries, it is now becoming increasingly popular as celebrities have taken to the trend, “showing off their spots.”
And because of its ability to produce dramatic healing in a shortened period of time, cupping is gaining the attention of doctors, physical therapists, and professional athletes.
What Is Massage Cupping?
Cupping massage is a suction technique designed to draw toxic build up out through the surface of the skin and to remove blockages from the body’s deeper tissue.
When you experience pain, that implies there is a blockage in the flow of energy through that particular area. And when toxins stagnate in the muscles or joints, it can be difficult for the body to get rid of this waste, causing further discomfort.
Cupping increases localized blood supply to the muscles and skin, bringing nourishment to the tissue and allowing for toxins to be carried away via the lymph.
Both chronic and acute conditions can be relieved as the body and tissues are locally and systemically renewed and regenerated!
