Facial Cupping Therapy
Women in Asia, Russia and Europe have been utilizing these remarkable negative pressure facial exercises for rejuvenation and maintenance for generations.
Protocols for the face use the small cups to suction and lift the facial tissue, mimicking the pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. It is a manual method that replicates the effects of equipment currently in use in most of the top aesthetic establishments.
The benefits include increased local circulation of the skin, increased nutrients brought to the epidermis, and enhanced absorption of facial topical. The drainage of stagnant fluids from reservoir areas will reduce edema and chronic puffiness.
Lines, wrinkles and will plump whereas scar tissue will soften from the negative pressure, making it an exceptionally powerful and surprisingly relaxing enhancement to advanced facial treatments.
The muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening rigid muscles associated with TMJ disorders. This is what I like to call a non-invasive face-lift.
