Cupping is an alternative therapy that uses suction cups to stimulate your skin and muscles. It can be done on your face or body for 

  • skin brightening
  • skin rejuvenation
  • anti-aging
  • reduce cellulite
  • relief of tense muscles


The suction promotes increased blood circulation, which may help relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair, and aid in other regeneration.

What is in the kit:

1.  Small Soft Facial cup

2. Medium Soft Facial/ Body Cup

3. Medium Hard Body Cup

4. Large Hard Body Cup

Body cupping: We suggest always start with the soft cups on a light suction and only progressing to the hard cup after one month or after you have completely adjusted to the sensation of the soft cup used with deep squeeze pressure.

  • Reduce hyperpigmentation
  • Anti-inflammatory 

Be sure to wash your cups after each use with a detergent soap and do not use with a mineral or tissue oil, as these oils will cause your cups to harden and eventually break.

 

How to use it on the face:

  1. Cleanse and pat dry skin        
  2. Apply a few drops of Rosehip Oil
  3. Select a suitable cup
  4. Gently draw the skin into the cup

    Move the cup smoothly in a straight line or in circles towards the lymph nodes and use suction technique under the eye. The whole face can be done for 2 minutes and not deep movements. You can follow with cold Jade Roller.
