This type of cupping is done by a Licensed Massage Therapist with training and a Cupping Certification, and ranges from gentle to moderately aggressive, which can leave temporary discoloration on the skin. These marks look like a bruise but do not have the tissue trauma that a bruise has, and they do not hurt. Fading takes anywhere from a few hours to a couple of weeks.
Please note that extremely aggressive cupping or wet cupping is done by acupuncturists or Chinese doctors only, and can cause blistering and bleeding. This type is NOT performed here, and your safe, relaxing spa treatment is our number one priority!
