BODY CUPPING

Cupping Therapy is a non-invasive, painless technique that has been used as holistic traditional medicine across civilizations from Asia to Egypt for thousands of years. During the massage technique, a simple application of vigorous, quick, rhythmical strokes stimulate the muscles while moving stagnant lymph and blood, removing toxins and replenishing the same area with oxygenated blood and nutrients.

Recommended use for body is 5-15 minutes a day 3 days per week or as needed*.  Some effects may be noticeable immediately, but it is recommended for continuous long term use to maintain results.  Results vary in individuals depending on skin type and commitment of use. To increase probability of success while massaging, test and practice using cups (suctioning, releasing, and gliding) several times and ensure skin is well lubricated with non absorbable moisturizer or oil. 

Instructions

  1. Massage may also be performed in the shower while skin is soapy.
  2. Lubricate skin with oil.
  3. To apply negative pressure squeeze cup to expel air.
  4. Stronger squeeze is stronger suction, start light.
  5. While squeezing, place cup on skin and let go. 
  6. Start with a light gentle suction for skin to get used to the treatment.
  7. Increase suction as comfort level increases.
  8. Glide cup on legs, arms, stomach or back to break adhesions.
  9. Long movements on smaller areas work best.
  10. On larger areas zig zag or spiral, holding skin with other hand helps stabilize massage and cup.

 

 

For back or thigh use L cup, for arms, stomach or neck use M body cup.

Rapid suction release may be used on localized areas to reduce stretch marks. 

Leaving cup static on skin can produce bruising, attempt to always glide cups.

Do not drag cups back.  Lift and return and repeat process.

It is encouraged to drink plenty of water while cupping to promote fluid exchange.

Note: Sensation of redness, warmth, and tingling may occur.  If sensation during massage is uncomfortable decrease suction strength to comfortable levels.
