THE OVERALL FACIAL CUPPING EXPERIENCE WITH MARY MITCHELL | VIBRANT LIFE
Facial Cupping is the session everyone is talking about and rapidly becoming my #1 most requested session. I hear repeatedly from those that have experienced it that it is one of the most amazing and relaxing experiences they have ever had! Here are some actual quotes from my clients after their facial cupping session: "Relaxing, Warming, Rejuvenating!” “Relaxing, Spa-like, Luxurious, Heavenly!” “Relaxing, No-Pain, New Adventure!” “Fresh, Clean, and Relaxing!” “Feels Yummy!” “Sooooo Relaxing!” "Now I know what heaven feels like."
Why Facial Cupping?
Facial cupping massage is not only good for relaxation, but it also helps to clean, detoxify, and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin. It is good for stimulating lymphatic movement, restoring dermal collapse (cellular dehydration as we age), improves muscular tone and contouring, helps with headaches, helps with sinus congestion, and helps ease TMJ and tight jaw pain. It really is so good for so many reasons and worth trying!
THE EXPERIENCE. WHAT DO I EXPECT???
When you come for your facial cupping massage you will come into a beautiful, calm, and peaceful room. The room is lovely, the lights are dim, there is relaxing music playing in the background, the room is fragrant with essential oils, a little fireplace is running for that touch of ambience, and the massage table is warm.
The session lasts about 60-75 minutes…I never rush, I want you to be able to fully relax and enjoy your time. You will kick your shoes off, and undress from the waist up (removing any jewelry) so you can enjoy the neck, decolletage, arm and hand massage that is a bonus part of the facial cupping experience.
Cleansing the Skin
We begin the session with a very gentle cleansing scrub, followed by a cleaning wash to remove any dead skin, make-up, oil, and dirt and to help prepare your face for the nourishing oils and relaxing cupping massage you are about to receive. I will begin to apply the nourishing facial oils; Jojoba, Vitamin E, and depending on your preferences or goals for your session, I can also add Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Retinol serums to boost and benefit anti-aging and to further improve the texture and tone of your skin.
After a gentle facial massage with the oils, I will begin the cupping massage. Now, this is the part that has people curious…. or apprehensive. But here is what I want you to know, my facial cupping massage is very gentle and very relaxing. I use exceedingly small, soft, silicone cups that are specifically designed for facial cupping and a cupping machine that allows me to control the amount of pressure being applied to your skin. THERE IS NO PAIN AND NO BRUISING! I hold 2 level of certification in facial cupping massage, so you can rest assured I know what I am doing and know how to use just the right amount of pressure, time/release, massage techniques and how to target not just the skin, but the muscle tone, cells, and fascial tissues beneath the skin. The facial cupping massage portion lasts about 30-40 minutes.
A Hydrating Mask
After the facial cupping massage, I will again cleanse your skin with warm clothes and a warm facial towel wrap, followed by a nice hydrating, purifying clay mask; the only
