Cellulite is a common problem that most women experience at some point in their lives. It has nothing to do with being overweight and even the slimmest woman can be affected by dimpling of skin (otherwise known as cellulite). Cellulite has an orange peel appearance and can appear anywhere on the stomach, thighs, hips, and bottom.
These dimples are fatty deposits, toxins, and impurities that haven’t broken down and remain underneath the skin. The main cause of cellulite is poor circulation. When the blood circulates well, it helps to break down these fatty deposits and removes them via the body’s natural lymphatic drainage system. Other factors of cellulite include poor diet, fluid retention, lack of exercise and genetics.
Excellent for boosting the lymphatic system and detoxing the body, cupping is favoured by many celebrities worldwide.
This Ancient Chinese therapy dates back over 5,000 years and is an alternative practice that has numerous benefits. From aiding muscular recovery post-workout to reducing stretch marks, banishing cellulite and boosting weight loss, it’s a relaxing treatment that generates superb results as long as it’s practiced with care.
Cupping creates a vacuum between the skin and the suction cup and in doing so it stimulates the body to “heal” itself. The body instantly recognizes suction and starts to create collagen and elastane, therefore tightening the skin and forcing fat cells to rupture. Once these fat cells rupture they die off and travel through the lymphatic system, leaving the body via natural waste.
Once the massage is complete, the cups are gently removed so as not to damage the skin. They do leave marks on the skin and the darker the mark, the more toxins present. Marks typically last anything from one to three days but in some cases they can last up to one week.
I use my own special blend of massage oil combined with essential oils that specifically target cellulite and stretch marks while performing massage cupping to futher enhance results.
If you are serious about getting amazing results then it is highly recommended to have a minimum of 2 sessions a week for 6 weeks and then maintenance sessions from there.
Half hour cupping and massage session $60
One hour cupping and massage session $100
2x half hour weekly cupping sessions $100
2x One hour weekly cupping sessions $180
Below is an indication of what sort of marks can be expected from cupping. Please note that blisters will not be a side effect of my cupping treatments as I perform the cupping with suction cups only so there is no risk of burns (burns/blistering only occurs when glass cups are heated with fire and if they are still too hot when placed on the skin)
