Alpina Plast Facial Massage Cupping Set
Each set contains 4 cups measuring 3.5” (90 mm) long (with rubber bulb) with the following diameters: (1) 0.43” (11 mm), (1) 0.78" (20 mm), (1) 1.3” (33 mm) and (1) 2.0” (50 mm). While intended for facial cupping treatment, these cups may also be used for neck, leg and shoulder.
To use: Apply a massage cream or oil to the area to be treated. Set cup and use three basic massage movements (straight line, zigzag and circular), repeating each 5-6 times while controlling vacuum intensity to fit patient’s needs. Massage each area for at least 5 minutes. For areas around eyes, an autohemotherapy technique is recommended in which cups are placed on skin for 2-5 seconds without moving.
