Cupping is an ancient Chinese healing practice that plumps tissue and improves blood flow to the skin. In recent years it has been popularised by celebrities, such as Gywneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and even athlete Michael Phelps, who swear by its healing benefits, including pain relief of sore muscles. Body cupping techniques generally involve the use of heated suction cups, which have the potential of causing red and purple bruising on the skin. Unlike body cupping, facial cupping involves the gentle application of soft cups that, if done correctly, do not leave marks but instead stimulate the production of oxygenated blood, collagen and elastin which helps plump and tighten the muscle structure of the face. Cupping helps relieve facial tension and promotes lymphatic drainage to remove puffiness and help clear the skin, producing a more even skin tone.

Facial cupping is a very soothing and relaxing alternative therapy which uses soft, gentle silicone suction cups that gently glide on the face and neck to stimulate your skin and muscles.
The suction promotes increased blood flow to the skin to encourage a natural healing process for the body to heal itself. This stimulates the production of oxygenated blood, collagen and elastin, which plump and tighten the muscle structure of the face, resulting in a healthy glow. Collagen and elastin are proteins found in the skin which work together to give skin its texture and shape. It can relax facial muscles tension, which moves any stagnant energy, encourage lymphatic drainage to help remove puffiness and clear the skin and is a great choice for sculpting and lifting, with fantastic results. The skin appears more brighter, youthful and toned.
