What is cupping therapy? Cupping therapy has been used by health practitioners for thousands of years. But until the invention of modern materials, these cups were always made of glass, a fragile, inflexible material. Glass was difficult to use because, to create the suction needed for therapeutic effects, practitioners needed to light small fires inside the cups, then quickly place them on the body. The cooling of the air inside the cups resulted in the therapeutic suction.
Now, after thousands of years of rigid cups, advanced materials have allowed us to create flexible silicone cups with extraordinary advantages. They're virtually unbreakable, portable and pliable. Most importantly, you can easily control the degree of suction by simply squeezing the cups more firmly or gently, depending on your preference.
How does cupping therapy work? The suction of the cup pulls the skin and tissues up and away from the body. Unlike acupressure or massage therapy, which compresses muscles and tissues, cupping therapy decompresses by gently pulling tissues outward. This creates space, boosts circulation, tones skin and tissues, and helps move lymph.
Plus, it feels fantastic! People receiving cupping therapy often comment that it feels like they just received a deep-tissue massage.
Our revolutionary therapeutic cups are made from premium quality silicone and are safe to use almost anywhere on the body, including the legs, back, abdomen, chest, arms, neck, wrists, ankles and even your face. One set includes four cups of varying sizes. Use the larger cups on larger areas of your body and the smaller cups on more precise areas such as face, neck and wrists.
Cupping therapy can be done statically, keeping the cups in one place, or dynamically by using a body oil combined with gentle movement. We recommend using a body oil such as SkinSense Organic Oil-Serum (available from our website).
After applying the cup and activating the level of suction that's right for you, gently move the cup along the length of your arm, leg, spine or other area of your body, making sure to maintain the air-tight seal of the cup. This action is delivering a deep massage to your tissues, creating gentle movement that can reach up to four inches inside your tissues. It leaves your skin and muscles feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and the enhanced circulation brings new blood and nourishment to the tissues.
Cupping therapy is remarkably affordable. Our 6 piece Premium Silicone Cupping Therapy Set costs less than a full body (including face) cupping massage session, yet you can use them over and over again, either on yourself, or with a partner. Because they're so resilient and flexible, you can easily travel with them, and because they use no batteries or electronics, they last a lifetime and make a smart addition to a home remedies collection.
