Effect of the cupping method
In cupping, the plastic cupping glasses are placed on the affected area and a vacuum is created with a vacuum pump, thus sucking in the skin. This increases blood circulation and stimulates lymph flow. This can have many health benefits and can, for example, specifically relieve tension or blockages.
Cupping massage is often used to treat a large area such as the back. During the cupping massage, body oil is first spread on the skin and then the cupping glass can be passed over the skin and massaged. The blood circulation is particularly increased during the cupping massage.
Cupping at home
With the Hoopomania cupping set, cupping is also suitable for use at home and can be easily applied by yourself with our cupping instructions. With curved cupping glasses, even difficult areas such as the elbow can be treated specifically. The cupping effect is very versatile. As the lymph flow is strongly stimulated, the immune system is also stimulated and healing can be accelerated. Thus, cupping can also help with flu-like infections or bronchitis.
Cupping on the face
However, the cupping effect is not only seen in cases of tension or infections, but through the improved blood circulation in the treated areas, the skin cells can also be stimulated and renewed. In this way, collagen production can be increased, which in turn leads to wrinkles being reduced and cupping can therefore also be used as an anti-aging application. When cupping the face, special care and caution must be taken. When used correctly, it opens the pores and impurities can be better removed, which can also lead to clear and smooth skin. Another effect of cupping on the face is that skin care products can be absorbed better and more intensively by the skin. If you want to apply cupping to the face, you should also bear in mind that redness can occur after the application, which can take some time to subside depending on the strength of the application. It is therefore advisable to carry out the application in the evening.
Cupping massage on the back
The most popular area for cupping massage is the back. There are many reflex zones on the back, which work closely together with the inner organs and can therefore help with many complaints. The back is preferably used to relieve tension after sports or to improve pain in the shoulders. The cupping massage is also often more effective than a conventional massage.
Cupping for psychological problems
Cupping can not only help with physical ailments, but can also help with psychological problems. For example, it can help to minimise depression or provide support in cases of chronic fatigue and listlessness. Many processes in the body have an enormous influence on our psyche and through the stimulation of the lymph flow and the removal of waste products in the body, psychological problems can also improve.
Cupping for headaches
There are many different types of headaches and it is usually difficult to find the cause. A common cause is tension in the neck area. Due to office work and too little movement, this area is often tense and can trigger pain. The application of cupping glasses can specifically release the tension and blockages and thus improve headaches or migraines.
Cupping with a Hoopomania cupping set
Hoopomania offers three different cupping sets. The cupping glasses are made of robust and high-quality plastic and are optimally suited for the cupping method. All sets come with a vacuum pump to create negative pressure in the cupping glass and to suck in the skin. There are also cupping instructions to download for easy application at home.
Losing weight through cupping
Losing weight only by cupping is not possible, but it can bring many advantages that can support a diet. Excess acid, which often remains in our body due to a wrong diet, can be reduced through cupping. Acidosis can lead to a variety of symptoms such as sluggishness, fatigue, headaches and many more. These symptoms can cause us to exercise too little and thus gain weight and become overweight. Cupping with cupping glasses can detoxify and also stimulate the metabolism, which helps to lose weight faster.
Cupping the legs
Those who suffer from lipoedema of the legs can treat the affected areas, increase lymph flow and possibly reduce pain. Many people also suffer from cellulite on their buttocks and legs. This too can be improved with regular cupping massage, increasing well-being. The reduction of lymphatic fluid relieves the connective tissue and thus also improves the appearance of the skin surface.
Cupping therapy is often offered by alternative practitioners and the costs can quickly exceed 50 Euros per session. However, cupping should not be used once, but at best on a regular basis for best results. An alternative is to buy your own cupping set and do the application yourself. It is important to be well informed beforehand and to strictly follow the instructions. The costs for cupping glasses are therefore only one-time and the application can then be carried out regularly.
