Cupping is all the rage at the moment, and with good reason…it’s amazing! But did you know that cupping has been used for over 3000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine? It’s true! So, even though the famous stars and athletes are starting to use it, it’s a tried and true therapy that stands the test of time.
Cupping can be a wonderful therapy for the body and can help with pain, sluggish lymph, cellulite, improving circulation and reducing inflammation, just to name a few benefits. However, my favorite way to use it is for the face. Facial cupping is part of our Signature Rejuvenating Facial Treatment since it also helps with fine lines, wrinkles, facial puffiness and helps to tone and improve the complexion. Facial cupping leaves NO marks!
Cupping is a very gentle treatment that feels wonderful on the face and results can be seen right away!
Most therapies that are preformed are done by pushing into the body. Whether that is massage, adjustments, trigger therapy, etc. - its all pushing. But cupping is different. Small cups are placed on the skin and a gentle suction is created inside the cups. This suction help facilitates blood flow by pulling fluids inside the body up through the tissues towards the cups, literally bringing fresh blood, which is carrying oxygen and nutrients, into the muscles and tissues of the skin. This helps to rejuvenate and improve function to the area treated.
This pain free therapy is one of my favorites and offers wonderful results!
