What is cupping?

Cupping or cupping therapy is a physiotherapeutic technique used to relax the muscles and enhance blood flow, although it is also used for aesthetic purposes, as a beauty treatment, to eliminate cellulite and fight against skin ageing.

Cupping is of millenary origin but is currently one of the most requested medical-aesthetic treatments this year. This technique is very effective in different applications, so discover all its advantages right now!

Cupping applications and benefits

Here are some of the benefits provided by the cupping technique, the most popular body cupping treatment in beauty centres:

  • It helps to eliminate fluid retention and excess fat.
  • It activates circulation and mobilises localised fat, thus reducing cellulite.
  • Helps in anti-cellulite treatments.
  • Oxygenates the dermis, supplies blood to the skin and eliminates toxins.
  • It activates collagen and elastin, therefore delaying skin ageing.
  • It is a firming massage, eliminates flaccidity and shapes the figure.
  • Treats contractures and strengthens tendons.
  • It has a muscle relaxing effect.
  • It improves the lymphatic system.
  • It is used as a pain treatment because it is anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
  • Reduces stress, relieves migraines and headaches.
  • Helps against insomnia.
  • It increases the defences.
  • Regulates the nervous system.
  • Stimulates the digestive system.

This beauty technique also works on an energetic level, by means of the cupping massage or gliding method, the free flow of Qi (energy) and blood in the meridians (energy circuits) is stimulated and promoted.

In the world of sports, cupping therapy is a technique used by many athletes because it has a calming and analgesic effect, perfect for treating muscular and joint problems. Depending on the pathology to be treated and the area of the body, different sizes and types of cupping cups are used. Thanks to cupping, they can recover as quickly as possible from that physical condition.

Face cupping

This type of cupping technique is also applied to the face, neck and neckline, and is very useful in anti-wrinkle facial treatments. Its benefits include the following:

  • Reduces dark circles under the eyes, crow’s feet and puffiness.
  • Tightens the skin. It provides a lifting effect that defines the facial contour and prevents double chin.
  • Provides luminosity.
  • Smoothes wrinkles and softens fine lines.
  • Treats scars.
  • Firms cheekbones and facial contours.
  • Regulates sebum production.
  • Stimulates the fasciae.

Face cupping can be used as an anti-ageing treatment, all you need is a face serum or an organic therapeutic oil and a special suction cup for the face that creates a vacuum and then suction that stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation and tones the muscles. There are suction cups made of glass or plastic, but there are also ceramic cups that can be used at home, but always well advised by a professional. Remember that the material that comes into contact with the skin is a suction bulb made of silicone or rubber (free of phthalates, latex and cadmium).

A facial cupping session usually lasts about 30 minutes, a light massage is performed on the face, neckline and neck and then we proceed with the technique. Cupping is a good anti-ageing and holistic beauty treatment. Try it with our nourishing anti-wrinkle face serum, you’ll want to try it again!

If you have tired and stressed skin with lack of vitality and you want to have a skin that’s free of signs of fatigue, smooth, soft and bright, now you know that this treatment will help you achieve it! Moreover, if you combine this technique with other stimulation techniques with tools such as the gua sha or the jade roller, you will have the best beauty ritual!

Remember that the results can last for up to 2 weeks, and you should have a healthy lifestyle, with an alkaline diet and drink plenty of water after the treatment.

We remind you that this technique must be done in a specialised centre (it is not advisable to do it at home because it can cause an injury) with properly trained staff such as physiotherapists, therapists or facialists and it is not recommended to apply this cupping on clients with warts and moles, ulcers, diabetes, blood clotting problems, rosacea, couperose, high fever, convulsions, infections, redness, fragile capillaries, spasms or who are allergic. If you have any questions, please ask your doctor before undergoing a session.
