Super popular for Self-Care as well as for immediate pain relief by athletes, the Align Cupping Set can be used with or without massage oil or lotion to create good contact with the skin.
The Align Cupping Set is made from a soft and supple food-grade silicone, this combined with a wide base on each cup creates a comfortable point of contact with the skin. These cups can be used on all areas of the body simply by pushing down on the handle on the top of the cup to create the suction! Additionally, you can use the handle to lift and rotate the cup slightly for even more muscle relief.
The Align Cupping Set consists of two sizes of cups for use on different target areas. The handle/plunger on the top of the cup provides additional functionality for manipulating the tissue under the skin. We do not recommend that you use these cups in a dynamic gliding/sliding manner, but rather only use them in a static/stationary manner.
There are 2 sets included / 4 cups in total - 2 Large Cups (2.25" in diameter) and 2 Small Cups (2.63" in diameter)
Silicone Hardness - This set is a 55 degree hardness silicone.
Align Cupping Set
The Align Cupping Set works extremely well for stationary/static techniques, the Rotation technique as well as the Blanket Cupping technique for beginner, intermediate and advanced cuppers.
Once the cup is sealed to the skin, leave it in place for several minutes. To provide more stimulation to the underlying tissue, you can very gently pull up on the handle/plunger and move it very slightly from side to side. If the cup pops off, simply reapply.
