March 2023

Hello and Welcome!

March is here, which means spring is just around the corner! 😊

Spring is a time of re-birth, cleansing, and detoxing. 

When I think of detoxing, I think of dry skin brushing, herbal baths, detox teas, gentle exercises, and massages.

Small face cups

One type of massage you can do at home to enhance circulation and expel toxins and waste is a cupping massage using small soft vacuum cups.

A face cupping massage can reduce under-eye puffiness and the appearance of a double chin, enhance skin cell regeneration, and boost skin elasticity.

A body cupping massage can reduce help reduce cellulite, bloating, relax sore muscles and boost skin elasticity.

At one time, cupping massage therapy was only available in luxury spas. But now these soft silicone cups can be used at home.

I’ve tried the cups for the face and eye area and here is what I found…

Face Cupping Massage

Cupping is an ancient massage therapy that's been around for a over 5,000 years and has been very popular in Asia, the Middle East and Egypt. 

Back then, a variety of materials were used as a massage tool, including animal horns, bamboo, ceramic, metal, and eventually glass and plastic.

Today's treatment involves placing heated glass cups (for body cupping) or squeezable plastic cups (for face cupping) onto the skin to create a vacuum pressure.

This vacuum pressure pulls the skin and muscle tissue, stimulating blood circulation. It's used to detox the body and treat a range of conditions, from common colds to sore muscles. 

What is at-home face cupping therapy?

Facial cupping is a lighter, gentle form of body cupping, using small, soft squeezable cups (made from medical grade silicone) to create a light vacuum over facial skin.

The soft cup is lightly massaged across the face, eyes, neck, chin, and chest to help stimulate circulation, increase lymphatic drainage (reducing facial puffiness), invigorate the skin and firm and soothe facial muscles.
