About Us

BETTER RESULTS WITH LESS EFFORT, the TUXEN METHOD is a new philosophy and application of the ancient technique of therapeutic cupping based on modern physical therapy, massage therapy, and a thorough clinical reasoning, while integrating a knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology. With Tuxen Method you can treat the same conditions as with conventional massage, but you can expand your area of clinical application and get potentially far better results. The Tuxen Method is also a great tool to combine with massage therapy, as well as with other mobilization and stretching techniques. Most modern massage therapy techniques ignore the needs of the therapist, leaving you continually exhausted, leading many to change careers. We want to help you free yourself from the exhaustion and pain in your career, while providing top-notch treatment opportunities for your patients
