Facial Cupping


 Women in Asia, Russia and Europe have been using techniques such as facial cupping or negative pressure therapy for generations.  The use of small cups to lift and manipulate the facial tissue drains the lymphatic layer and leaves the skin with increased circulation and nutrients brought to the epidermis allowing for better nutrients absorption.  A single treatment shows impressive results decreasing edema and chronic puffiness.  Continuous treatments have cumulative results smoothing lines, wrinkles and plumping areas with fascial restriction, tension or scar tissue by softening and revitalizing soft tissue.  

       This procedure is known as Vacuum Suction Massage or Ventouzzes but uses a vacuum to create suction.  And while it can revitalize a youthful look, the muscles of the face benefit greatly as well.  From reduction of tension and tightness to releasing expression lines and loosening ridged muscles associated with TMJ disorders or chronic headaches.  Even sinus infections and inflammation are directly relieved by the loosening and draining effects of the cups.  

       Beginning treatments should be done 1-2 times per week and fade off as desired results are obtained.  More youthful faces may only need this once a month or so keep the skin from aging rapidly.  The overall health of the skin or your nutritional intake will change the outcomes desired.  For example drinking/eating excess amounts of alcohol or sugar will disrupt progress. 

       Sessions are 20, 40 and 60 minutes long and cost $40, $70 and $120.  Packages are available in groups of 6 and 12.  Please feel free to call 845-480-4432 with any questions.
