What is Facial Cupping?

Facial cupping is an alternative therapy that uses small suction cups and gentle suction to stimulate your skin and muscles. The suction promotes increased blood circulation which helps to relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair, and can aid in regeneration. It is also said that it helps to improve the flow of your qi, meaning your body's natural energy and life force.

The facial cups are small and soft and are used to gently pull the skin away from the deeper layers of fascia. This increases blood flow to the area and rejuvenates the skin WITHOUT leaving marks behind. Over time, this practice has been shown to improve the complexion and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles.
