Made from the highest quality, medical-grade and platinum cured silicone compounds, the Base Cupping Set is one of the most versatile on the market and perfect for anyone starting out using Cupping Therapy or who likes to utilize both movement and stationary based techniques!
Some people call these mushroom cups, accordian cups, pancake cups...we call them the Base Cups as they are the most widely used silicone cupping sets by the professionals and will form the base of every one of your treatments.
These cups are a medium custom silicone made specifically for Global Cupping. This makes them perfect for DIY cupping at home as well as for professionals to use in a clinical setting. The 60 hardness level allows for an intermediate level of suction compared to our 65 degree hardness set, making them perfect for dynamic cupping treatments using a gliding/sliding technique.
The Base Cupping Set in the 60 degree hardness level can also be used incredibly well for static/stationary techniques with an intermediate level of suction, making them incredibly versatile for all cupping techniques both in your clinical setting or when you are performing cupping therapy at home in between your manual therapy treatments.
- Easier to apply than most of the cups on the market so they are easier on your hands.
- Easier to adjust the amount of suction.
- Easier to control the cups and use them for sliding/gliding dynamically or for static/stationary applications.
There are 4 cups in the set - 1 Large Cup (3.5" x 4.5"), 1 Medium Cup (2" x 3.25"), 1 Small Cup (1.75" x 2.5") and 1 Extra-Small Cup (1.25" x 4.5")
- The Large sized cup works great on the back, hips, thighs and hamstrings.
- The Medium sized cup works great on the calves and shoulders.
- The Small sized cup works great on the arms and lower neck.
- The Extra Small sized cup works great on small areas like the hands and feet.
Silicone Hardness - This set is a 60 degree hardness. For a softer silicone cupping set, please check out our 55 degree hardness set or if you're looking for a harder silicone cupping set that provides a higher level of suction, check out our 65 degree hardness set.
Base Cupping Set - 60 Hardness
The Base Cupping Set - 60 degree hardness works especially well for gliding/sliding techniques and is a great set for intermediate users looking to utilize stationary/static techniques. These cups also work great for the Flash Cupping and Blanket Cupping techniques.
To use, place the cup on the skin by squeezing or pressing on the cup to create the negative pressure required to create the seal - using a massage lotion or oil will assist in creating a proper seal.
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).
