Cupping (Massage Add On)
Cupping is an ancient technique involving suctioning the skin with glass, plastic, or silicone cups (Tiffany uses a combination of silicone and plastic). Today, it is used to help with relaxation, blood flow, pain and inflammation. Some think of it as a deep-tissue massage.
In practice, a plastic cup is applied to the skin then the pressure in the cup is reduced by suction to draw and hold skin and superficial muscle tissue/fascia inside the cup. Cupping is applied to certain parts of the body that have been affected by pain or muscle/fascia tightness. The cupping process draws blood from your vessels and into your tissue. This starts a positive inflammatory response. It also:
- Promotes the skin’s blood flow
- Changing the skin’s biomechanical properties
- Increasing pain thresholds
- Improves local anaerobic (without oxygen) metabolism
- Reduces inflammation
- Boosts cellular immunity
Silicone cups are glided across different areas to lift and separate tissue. It enhances the release of the interfaces between the neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles and tendons. Some clients with myofascial pain report resolution of pain after just one session. There is also some evidence to suggest that cupping techniques are effective for:
- Chronic neck pain
- Low back pain
- Muscle relaxation
- Trigger point release
- Improved lymphatic flow
- Increased local circulation
- Release of scar tissue adhesion
- Great for healing chronic pain
- Effective on old or current injury
- Clears scar tissue
- Stretches connective tissue restoring flexibility

Polarity Therapy is a system working with the human energy field and electro-magnetic patterns expressed in mental, emotional and physical experience. Polarity Therapy views health as a reflection of the condition of the energy field and is a method designed to bring balance to the field, creating healing and balance.
BodyMind processes are individually tailored to each person.
Healing occurs through allowing the body to speak by following sensation and listening to the information the body gives. You can learn to communicate with and understand your symptoms gaining insight to your own being.
Tiffany studied prenatal massage throughout her massage therapy program and is adept at helping mama’s stay comfortable throughout their session. She also practices some light stretching to help create subtle space as baby claims more.
What They’re Saying…
“I have had a fair number of massages throughout the years, and even though some were very good, I never felt a true connection with the “person behind the hands” if you will. Meeting Anne Olivier changed all of that. Anne is authentic, intuitive, a good listener, and an incredible healer. She asks the right questions about what’s going on with me and my body and tailors her massage craft in such a way that promotes multi-level healing. She is incredibly skilled and practices many modalities including neuro muscular release and polarity. These methods have brought me deeper relief physically and even emotionally than I thought was possible. Anne is a very bright light and pours her powerful healing energy, love and nurturing spirit into whomever she comes into contact with. Give yourself the gift of a higher vibration and a much more relaxed body with an Anne Olivier massage. I promise you it won’t be basic and you won’t regret it. “
