How to Apply Your Silicone Cups


Base Cupping Set

  • In order to create a good seal of the cup against your skin, use a massage lotion or oil, especially if the area being cupped has a large amount of body hair.

  • Place the silicone cup on your skin, holding the cup with your index finger, middle finger and ring finger around the edge of the cup and press the top of the cup down with your thumb or palm of your hand.  At the same time, lift the edge of the cup slightly with your fingertips so that the air inside of the cup is released.

  • As you gently push down on the top of the cup with your thumb / palm of your hand, release your fingers from the edge of the cup so that it suctions to your skin.  It may take some practice to get the right amount of suction.

  • Alternatively, you can squeeze the sides of the cup to form an oblong shape before pressing the cup to the skin.

  • Once the cup is sealed to the skin, you can slide it back and forth (gliding/sliding technique) or leave it in place for several minutes to provide deep stimulation to the underlying tissue (stationary/static technique).

Cellulite Cupping Set

  • In order to create a good seal of the cup against your skin, use a massage lotion or oil, especially if the area being cupped has a large amount of body hair.

  • Place the silicone cup on your skin, holding the cup in the palm of your hand with your fingers wrapped around the body of the cup.  Gently squeeze the cup in the palm of your hand so that the air inside of the cup is released. 

  • When you have a good suction to the skin, release your hand from the cup.  It may take some practice to get the right amount of suction.

Align Cupping Set

  • Place the cup flush against your skin and then press the handle/plunger on the top of the cup downwards to create the negative pressure required to create the seal. 

  • After a few seconds, the handle/plunger will automatically return to it's upward position and create the suction.  Using a massage lotion or oil will assist in creating a proper seal, especially if the area has excess body hair.

Vitality Cupping Set

  • To apply the Vitality cups, place the cup against your skin and then push down on the rounded top to create the suction.

  • You can also pinch the sides of the cup to create an oblong shape before placing the cup on the skin and releasing it.  This will typically create a medium amount of suction.  

  • For maximum suction, pull the sides of the cup down so that it basically 'flips' inside out (you will know it's inside out if you see the small beads of tourmaline along the underside of the rim). Place the ‘inside’ round end of the cup against the skin and press firmly down on the edges for it to ‘snap’ down and flip over.  CAUTION:  This amount of suction may be extremely uncomfortable for some people.

How to Remove Your Silicone Cups


To release the suction of the cup, gently tilt the cup to the side and slide your fingertip between the skin and the rim of the cup to break the seal. 

 

When removing your cups, NEVER pull the cup directly off the skin as this may cause a breakage of the capillaries in the area and cause extensive bruising and/or potential tissue damage.
