Face Cupping: What is Face Cupping and Does This Work for Facial Rejuvenation?

Cupping therapy is a form of complementary medicine that uses suction cups to promote deep tissue relaxation and muscular activation. Not only the face, but it can also apply to the whole body. Suction has been reported to enhance blood flow, reduced muscular tension, repair damaged cells, and cell regeneration. In this article, we will show how facial cupping works for facial rejuvenation and its benefits. 

How does it work?

Facial cupping is a treatment that uses suction to draw fluid from beneath the skin. This can be done in many ways, but it most commonly involves applying firm suction with a cup-shaped instrument over your facial muscles and veins.  Blood rushes beneath the cup due to the vacuum formed in the cup enhancing the growth of cells and oxygen circulation.

Then as more pressure is applied over time, less air contains in the cup while more of your facial blood vessels swell up like balloons filled with fluid—causing them to drain out through tiny holes on either side of where you have applied suction.

How does it differ from body cupping?

Although the two treatments are similar in some ways, they differ in others. In body cupping, larger cups treat larger areas of the body. The therapist uses these large-cup practitioners to treat areas such as the shoulders and legs because they can be applied without causing pain or discomfort.

Facial cupping uses small cups for facial treatment instead of body treatments like shoulder or leg therapy. These smaller cups may only have one hole in them, which makes it easier for therapists who need to be better-versed in using them yet still want their patients’ faces to look great!

Will it leave any bruises?

Facial cupping is a gentle technique that will not leave any bruises or marks on your skin. It is safe for all skin types, including sensitive ones like rosacea and eczema.

If you’re concerned about the potential for bruising, we can offer our clients options to minimize this risk:

  • The practitioner may place their thumb on the area before suctioning; this helps them avoid pressing too hard on fragile areas of the face or head.
  • They may also use a different suction device with less pressure than traditional facial cupping equipment.

What are the benefits?

Facial cupping is a great way to improve your skin. It can help with sinus infections, inflammation, and TMJ disorder.

Facial cupping is also an excellent way to relieve headaches, migraines, and other tension-related headaches by releasing toxins from the head and body. Facial cupping also helps lymphatic drainage by opening up blocked energy channels, promoting healthy blood circulation throughout the body.

I have been receiving massage and cupping services from Kerryann since June 2022. I originally started seeing Kerryann because I am a runner and was training for a marathon, so I required regular massage therapy. Her work is spectacular. Unlike other massage therapists I have visited, she actually listens to you when you mention a specific area feels off. She is helpful in identifying whats going on and designs your session specifically to help you feel better. In the lead up to my marathon, she was able to fit me in for a quick cupping session to tune-up my body before I departed for my race. I beat my personal record by 40 minutes, and I truly believe Kerryann’s help over the course of my training helped me achieve that. I will continue to be a client of Kerryann’s for as long as she’s in this business! Thank you Kerryann for everything that you do!
Best massage that I’ve ever received.

It was my first time going to see Kerryann and I must say from I entered the room it was peaceful serene calm ,I even enjoyed her soft relaxing music selection..

But I loved every bit of my massage Kerryann has gifted hands and I definitely will be going back the time can’t come soon enough.!!
Thank you kerryann for my services today you rock wishing all the success and you got a client for life …

My massage by Kerry-Ann was wonderful. Very therapeutic and healing. I would recommend her, she knew where to put pressure and what advice to give. Thank again Kerry-Ann.
Logistics: Enter the building, head through the brown door in the back left of the first room, go down the stairs, and find Suite B4. No need to check in with the person working at the front of the building.

Wow. Kerryann is amazing, and so strong! I left feeling like a puddle – and like I really needed a massage. After the massage, Kerryann gave me a stretching exercise to do to reduce the tension between my shoulder blades. She played lo-fi beats. The pressure was great.

Highly recommended!

Kerriane is a great massage therapist. She asks the right questions and she knows the right answers to help her clients. My husband & I are so happy she can now come to our home for our massages.

Kerryann provided a great massage service. Helped ease my neck, shoulders and back from pain due to bad posture. Will be coming back!

She hit all the spots on and applied good pressure as needed, a professional.
I went to Naturally Zuri Massage for a cupping session. I walked away with such an experience. She checked in with me to make sure that pressure of the cups was bareable but effective. I’ve had cupping done on me before but she had a different flow and energy to it. I will admit the pain that I had before going to her had reduced and didn’t flare up for about a week.
Had a cupping session with Kerryann and it was a phenomenal experience. She focused on the right areas. I left the session feeling great and felt even better the following day!
The best massage I’ve ever had. I definitely felt the care effort put into my massage. Kerryann was very attentive to my problem areas and took the necessary steps to treat those areas. I absolutely love their heated massage table, the leg pillows and shoulder pillows. I was extremely comfortable, and felt renewed when I left. I will be signing up for the membership. I will also recommend this place to everyone I know.
