Cupping Therapy - What is it?

 

The decompressing action on the body by the cups facilitates lymphatic and vascular flow, releases tight fascia, and lifts cellular debris to the surface where it can be cleared. Traumas, injuries and a sedentary lifestyle can all leave an accumulation of metabolic waste and old blood cells deep in the tissues that we refer to in Chinese medicine as stagnant blood. This is what you see when the round marks appear after a cupping session, if they appear at all.

 

Cupping can be as diagnostic as it is a treatment, as we can see after treatment which areas had an accumulation of stagnant blood. The marks fade in a few days as the body clears away the debris, leaving room for fresh blood to nourish the area that was compromised. Cupping will often help a troubled area when other therapies won't.  Proper hydration after a cupping session helps the body's lymphatic system flush out the tissues.

Honey Glow Facial Cupping 

Lift ~ Plump

 

Enjoy a natural face lift without invasive, harmful, or chemical procedures with our facial cupping treatment.  We start with a light exfoliation and then apply a Neroli toner followed by a humectant and anti-bacterial organic honey mask. While the mask processes, enjoy an invigorating scalp and neck massage. Next begins the tonifying gua sha and cupping facial massage. The gentle suction of the small glass cups relaxes tight muscles, re-hydrates flaccid tissues, and stimulates the flow of lymph without leaving marks. We send you back into the sunlight with a light application of SPF 15 coconut moisturizer.
