Cupping therapy uses negative pressure rather than tissue compression in massage. It is very helpful in aiding relief and recovery for many health conditions.
"By creating suction and negative pressure, this therapy releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, loosens adhesions, lifts connective tissue, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles."
Cupping can have beneficial effects on the skin, muscles, circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system, and the joints.
Facial cupping is a non-invasive treatment that can minimize the effects of aging, sun, and environmental damage. It gently lifts the facial tissue resulting in massaging of the tissue. It increases blood circulation and brings a fresh supply of oxygen to the epidermis. The lifting motion reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and scaring due to aging, injury, and/or acne. The connecting tissue under the facial skin is stimulated which heals and reduces smile and laugh lines.
