This creates a gentle relaxing facial massage and helps improve the appearance of the skin. No marks are left on the face with moving cupping which is important for regular use.

For many years it was believed that face cupping simply worked in the much the same way as a normal massage by increasing local circulation to aid nutrition in skin care.


Recent research has suggested that Chinese massage cups may actually break up old connective tissue in the area (1). Tightening of connective tissue is one of the main causes of the changes in facial shape we associate with ageing. By improving this cupping therapy can not only improve the texture and colour of the skin by dramatically increasing circulation it may also reduce the overall signs of ageing in the face.
