Cupping is an ancient Chinese tradition used to shift "stagnation" from the body. The Chinese believed that stagnation of toxins within the body were responsible for all pain.
Bellabaci is a very safe modern cupping method which can be carried out as a stand alone experience or in conjunction with other massage. A variety of pliable silicone cups are used during the treatment to exert a gentle-feeling suction, even on the face. When used professionally they are very unlikely to mark the skin in the way traditional glass cups may.
Bellabaci treatments work deeply within the tissue layers - meaning you can gain the benefits of a deep tissue massage, yet still enjoy a wonderfully relaxing experience. The technique stimulates and rejuvenates the lymphatic system. It also creates a flow of fresh oxygenated blood which is rich in natural nutrients and causes the release and clearing of waste and toxins from the fat cells.
Bellabaci cupping is great for tight and sore muscles, joint pain, digestive disorders, abdominal bloating, sinus problems and migraines. It also helps to break up cellulite by working on the root cause and therefore can improve the "orange peel" appearance for smoother, more toned skin. If you'd like to look tip-top for a special event then facial cupping has been shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and eye-bags.
I'm body shy; do I have to be naked?!!
No, you do not have to be naked. People enjoying a full body treatment generally wear underwear and are covered with towels. The suction effect of cupping only works on bare skin, therefore I can carefully uncover each area as necessary and ensure the rest is tucked up nice and discreetly.
Do the cups leave marks?
You may have seen celebrities sporting what are commonly referred to as "cup kisses". These
large marks can be left by Chinese (glass) cupping where heat is used to suction a cup to the skin for several minutes.
During a Bellabacci cupping massage I ensure the cups are moved around frequently, and the suction adjusted appropriately. Whilst on the move there is no likelyhood of any marking. Occasionally cups can be "parked" in a congested area for a minute or so to really work deeply in that area. Any marks occuring from that are toxins brought to the surface of the skin. They are not bruises, and ordinarily disappear by the time the treatment is over. If an area is incredibly congested then a feint coloured patch may stay after the treatment. This happens rarely and these toxins will drain away over a few days.
What does it feel like?
Despite working so deeply, the suction feels very gentle and can be incredibly relaxing. There is often a gentle warming sensation surrounding the area being worked on.
