What should I wear to an active cupping therapy session? First and foremost, just like getting a massage, wear whatever you’re most comfortable in! We recommend wearing shorts or pants that can easily roll up, a tank top, a sports bra, or an easily adjustable shirt for back and neck accessibility.
What should I do after a cupping session? After your session, just like getting a massage, drink PLENTY of water. We usually say to try to double whatever you normally drink if you’re a good water drinker. Otherwise, try for at least 8 to 10 cups. Hydrating before AND after a cupping session helps give you the best experience and to help flush out toxins. You should try to take it easy, too, as you could feel a little more tired than usual or make you a bit sore. This is normal and can be avoided with plenty of water intake.
No, facial cupping does NOT cause cupping marks if done correctly by a certified cupper/therapist. Facial cupping uses special facial cups; they are smaller than normal cups. Facial cupping pulls away from deeper layers of fascia to increase blood flow and rejuvenate the skin. Facial cups may also be used to help with sinus relief, headache treatments, and TMJ treatments.
