Another great massage that brings me back. Ran a half marathon, gym just about every day and walked up to granite mountain and rampart lakes all in a week. She takes the kinks out for sure! Thanks Lin!
I’ve never had such an amazing massage…EVER. Lin is the 5th massage therapist I’ve tried in the past 14 months, all of which came very highly recommended by multiple people, but none of them could compare to her skill and technique! I actually felt like crying, overwhelmed with emotion while she was working out some of my stress points. Ahhmazing!
I have wanted to learn cupping for a long time, and I was thrilled to be able to learn it from Lin, who studied the technique in China and really knows her stuff! She’s a knowledgeable, patient teacher and I’d take any class she taught even though I have to drive 6 hours to be there!

“Acupuncture and cupping, more than half of the ills cured,” is a famous Chinese saying, supporting traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine brings to mind acupuncture and the use of natural herbs as healing remedies. Cupping is a lesser-known treatment that is also part of Oriental medicine, one that can provide an especially pleasant experience. One of the earliest documentations of cupping can be found in the work titled A Handbook of Prescriptions for Emergencies, which was written by a Taoist herbalist by the name of Ge Hong and which dates all the way back to 300 AD. An even earlier Chinese documentation, three thousand years old, recommended cupping for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. In both Eastern and Western cultures, cupping evolved from shamanistic practices that held the belief that illnesses and infirmities can be sucked out of the body.
Cupping was established as an official therapeutic practice in the 1950s across hospitals in China after research conducted by Chinese and former Soviet Union acupuncturists confirmed cupping’s effectiveness. Prior to the 1950s, cupping had also been practiced as an auxiliary method in traditional Chinese surgery. In recent years cupping has been growing in popularity, with celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, David Arquette, and athlete Michael Phelps drawing public attention to the traditional Chinese therapy technique.
Though news outlets were quick to criticize celebrities chasing the newest medical therapies and techniques, recent studies have shown cupping’s effectiveness in reducing pain intensity and providing positive short-term benefits.
