What is Facial Cupping?

Here at The Cupping Clinic, we offer a range of services, including facial cupping clinic, which will help to revitalise your skin and rejuvenate your complexion. This ancient practice combines the benefits of traditional cupping with targeted techniques designed specifically for the face. It works by gently gliding suction cups across the skin, which helps to promote lymphatic drainage, increase blood circulation, and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a radiant and youthful glow.

You can rest assured that we have skilled practitioners who use facial cupping to address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and uneven texture. The gentle suction helps to lift and tone facial muscles, reduce puffiness and inflammation, and promote detoxification, leaving your skin looking and feeling revived.

Fire Cupping FAQs

Why Fire?

There are many types of cupping, but fire cupping is the most traditional, original form of Chinese medicine. It uses glass cups (also traditional) and the fire “creates a better suction with glass cups,” Fire cupping removes the “cold” in the body — cold is considered one of the “evils” in Chinese medicine of which practitioners aim to rid the body.

What About Marks?

The marks left after cupping is nothing to worry about because they are painless. Depending on the patient and what they suffer from, some marks may be darker than others. However, this usually heals within 2-5 days.

Treatment Process

Fire cupping involves soaking a cotton ball in almost pure alcohol. The cotton is clamped by a pair of forceps and lit via match or lighter, and, in one motion, placed into the cup and quickly removed, while the cup is placed on the skin. The fire uses up all the oxygen in the cup which creates a negative pressure inside the cup. The cup is then quickly placed onto the body and the negative pressure “sucks” the skin up. Massage oil is applied to create a better seal as well as allow the cups to glide over muscle groups (e.g. trapezius, erectors, latissimus dorsi, etc.) in an act called “gliding cupping” or “sliding cupping”. Dark circles may appear where the cups were placed because of capillary rupture just under the skin.
