The Method of Facial Cupping & Everything You Need To Know
The method of facial cupping massage stimulates the connective tissue and cells to release waste, promote lymph and blood flow the end result being smoother and firmer looking skin.
How does it work?
Facial cupping uses custom sized silicon suction cups. As you squeeze the silicon cup and place it onto the skin, a reverse suction action picks up the facial tissues and lifts them into the dome. With benefits similar to that of a massage, this lifting of facial tissues increases blood circulation, shuttling in fresh oxygen and nutrients, whilst stimulating the lymph nodes for advanced lymphatic drainage to dump out all the toxic waste which can be clogging up the skin—cute. As the excess fluid gets drained, you are rewarded with less puffiness while all that plumping and lifting gives you an immediate and noticeable facelift.
☑️Please ensure you come cleansed or makeup free prior to your appointment.
STEP 1: By applying gentle pressure on the skin and squeezing the facial silicone cup, our therapist can adjust the vacuum created by the cup for a tailored treatment result
STEP 2: Our therapist can then ‘glide’ the cup over the skin during treatment to stimulate blood flow and waste removal under the skin. Using https://curaco.com.au/collections/essentials/products/essential-oils The serum will enable the facial cup to ‘glide’ easier and at the same time nourish the tissue. Build intensity during treatment by squeezing the cup more to increase the vacuum with the cups.
STEP 3: Post cupping massage, the therapist will conclude the service with LED Therapy. Our therapist will decide which colour wavelength is right for you.

Wait, am I going to get a black eye?
“But the bruising?!” I hear you yell. No stress girl—unlike the traditional cupping practice, the petite cups glide smoothly across your face in a constant motion of lifting and smoothing, resulting in perhaps a little pink-ness (that’s the good oxygenating blood flow hitting your troublesome spots) but sans-bruising. The only time time there’s potential for some suspicious hickey-like marks to crop up is if you, or your therapist leaves the cups in one spot for too long—so keep on moving to avoid any awkward marks tomorrow!
