Cupping Therapy Tips


Everyone can always use a few tips and tricks when it comes to Cupping Therapy!  Here are a few of ours...feel free to contact us with yours!

Silicone Cups Won't Suction

If your cups won't hold suction to the skin very well, try using massage oil instead of lotion to help create good contact between the cup and the skin.

Oil to Use With Cupping

We recommend using a good quality massage oil if you are going to be using Dynamic / Sliding Cupping.  Lotions, gels and creams can sometimes inhibit the ease of gliding the cups over the skin.  Please not use Olive Oil with your silicone cups as this will degrade the silicone.

Wash with Hot Water and Dishsoap

Always clean your silicone cups with hot water and liquid dishsoap (we find that Dawn works the best) and then rinse well.  Do NOT put your silicone cups into boiling water or in your dishwasher as this will damage the integrity of your cups.

Don't Use Alcohol or Lysol

Do NOT use alcohol or Lysol wipes to clean your cups!  Alcohol-based products and Lysol wipes can dry out your silicone cups and degrade the silicone.
