Facial Cupping/Facial Rejuvenation
Facial Cupping is a unique and totally natural skin care technique. It is a wonderful alternative to chemical and surgical face lift. Facial Cupping feels great and receiving a session is a very relaxing way to treat yourself. This gentle form of cupping does not leave any marks on the skin. After a Facial Cupping session the skin appears relaxed, hydrated and vibrant.
Facial Cupping is a form of tissue rejuvenation therapy that increases circulation to the skin, fascia and muscles of the face and neck. It also promotes circulation of lymph fluid. Overall, the process works with the body’s natural functions to promote health and vitality.
Facial Cupping is done by creating gentle suction using a small, smooth glass cup with a rubber ball on top. As the ball is squeezed, the skin is lifted with the suction. A thin layer of coconut oil allows the cup to slide over the skin.This process not only makes the complexion appear more vibrant, but it also helps to remove toxins and stagnant fluids, so your skin actually becomes healthier with each treatment. With just one facial cupping session you will notice a brighter smoother complexion, and with regular treatment acne, puffiness and wrinkles will decrease. Generally within five treatments (one or two treatments per week), dramatic results are visible.
Facial Cupping increases collagen production in the skin, so no topical “anti-aging” creams are used in this treatment. It is a completely natural process, kind of like a massage. It can help tight, stressed muscles to relax, so it’s great for jaw pain and headaches. It can also reduce sinus congestion.
A Facial Cupping Session includes warm towels, a gentle hot stone massage, facial cupping and a green tea mask. Simple products are used in this treatment like fractionated coconut oil, green tea (matcha) and rose water, all high in anti-oxidant and skin-soothing properties. This service can be combined with other services like Acupuncture or Shiatsu Massage which really take the session to the next level of relaxation.
Cupping has historical roots in ancient China, Russia, the Middle East and Greece, and today it has become a common healthcare tool. Celebrities including Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria Beckham are known to use cupping. Since more and more people are seeking out natural, non-surgical and non-chemical ways to keep their skin healthy and beautiful, facial cupping is quickly growing in popularity.
