The face

Massage Cupping™ for the face was created after the discovery of glass micro-suction cups. This treatment can be performed easily in a few minutes, and is simply a manual “lifting” method. The main advantages are: better local circulation of the skin, improved nutrition and oxygenation of the cells, stimulation of the natural elasticity of the skin with better assimilation of ampoules, masks and serums. The use of suction pads on the face is remarkable for relieving sinus congestion and cleansing stagnant fluids, especially dark circles, while eyebrows regain their youthful appearance! Working with suction cups on the face also helps to loosen stiff muscles associated with temporomandibular joint disorders. Wrinkles are visibly reduced with the Cupping™ massage, and rosacea or saturated skin is quickly cleansed. Massage cupping allows you to prepare for all facial surgeries and to improve the results.

The body

The use of suction cups for body care gives amazing results when combined with an aromatic treatment using essential oils such as “Aroma Cocoon”, for example to help reduce weight, stop smoking, etc.

The addition of VacuTherapies ™ sessions in body care not only improves the absorption of the applied products, but also helps the flow of stagnant fluids. Although it is not recommended to combine ™ suction cup massage with aggressive exfoliation, it can be easily integrated into most body care treatments practiced in aesthetics.

Almost all forms of massage can be enhanced by the addition of Massage Cupping™. The wide range of equipment and machines now available allows a variety of applications and treatments.

Magnetic cups

Magnetic suction cup sets are used in addition to massage cupping, for wound care, pain management, neuropathy, scar reduction, joint problems, and scoliosis.  Reflexology treatments for hands, feet and face are easily performed with the magnetic suction pads, which can also be used on trigger points, neurolymphatic points and shiatsu tsubo points. These powerful tools are used to alkalinize acidified tissues, allow the release of old toxins, improve blood and lymphatic circulation. Another age-old tool that has found modern applications with exciting results.
