It is normal to have red to purple marks on the back after a cupping treatment. The darker the mark is, the more toxins it has released from the body.

Cupping therapy

Originating from ancient Egypt and China, cupping therapy is a natural therapy that’s been used for centuries to stimulate and activate the body’s own natural self-healing power. Glass cups are first heated with a flame and then immediately placed on the back. The warm air inside the heated cups creates suction on the muscles. This allows blood vessels to expand and redden.

In Traditional Chinese medicine, cupping therapy is believed to help relieve muscle tension, as well as to improve blood circulation and help with respiratory symptoms. Our therapist will start with a warming oil back massage to release any tension and relax the body, and then apply the cups on your back for about ten to fifteen minutes. It is normal to have red to purple marks on the back after a cupping treatment. The darker the mark is, the more toxins it has released from the body.

Detox massage

An invigorating and firming massage specifically targets concerned areas of cellulite such as abdomen and thighs, to stimulate blood flow and to help tighten and tone your muscles using the signature detox blend. In the 90-minute treatment, cupping therapy will be added in the back area to help draw out toxins.
