30 May Facial cupping: Massage, Lymphatic Drainage and Aculifting
Facial cupping is all the rage! It has a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating effect on the skin, and will make an excellent addition to your beauty regimen. Unlike more traditional techniques, in facial cupping practitioners never leave cups on the same area for more than a second or two at a times, since it can leave unsightly marks.
All of these treatments first involve gently applying massage oils or moisturizers on the treatment area. Try one of our facial massage creams for a soothing, therapeutic experience!
Using silicone cups to gently massage the face will help promote blood circulation, and relax tense muscles. It’s especially effective around the brows, eyes and jaw.
Larger facial silicone cups are appropriate around the cheeks and jawline, whereas the smallest cups can be used around the delicate skin surrounding the eyes. Practitioners place and quickly remove these tiny cups in quick succession for flash cupping treatments, which are a more practical alternative to straightforward cupping massage.
Developed during the second world war, lymphatic drainage is a technique that relies on light circular movements to promote lymph circulation. The lymphatic system works to rid the tissues of waste, and bring bacteria to the lymphatic nodes where they are destroyed.
Facial cupping can be a great way of promoting lymphatic drainage; it can stimulate this system through repetitive, light circular movements that are directed towards the lymph nodes. Cupping is especially appropriate since it provides an even amount of pressure.
Aculifting is a set of modern beauty techniques inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, which can involve magnetic masks, acupuncture needles, and yes – facial silicone cupping. Strategic massage of different zones can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and give the skin a radiant glow.
