The Benefits of Facial Cupping: When and How to use this Ancient Healing Modality

Cupping is a healing modality that was developed in ancient Chinese culture. Used for centuries, it is known for breaking up congestion in the skin, lymphatic drainage, and promoting the flow of Qi (“Chee”); the life force in the body. Like a reverse massage, cupping creates gentle suction away from the skin instead of pushing the skin inward. This suction pulls blood and nutrients from the deepest layers of the skin to the surface; breaking up blockages, promoting blood flow, and improving circulation.
