What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping Therapy is an ancient healing method that may ease back pain, neck pain, headaches, asthma, and musculoskeletal issues. It is often used by athletes to relieve sore muscles, reduce chronic pain and aid in muscle recovery.
Cupping is used to relieve pain and inflammation, and provide deep tissue massage and lymphatic drainage. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscle tension, stimulate blood circulation, regenerate capillaries, and unblock energy channels - promoting the natural healing processes of the body.
How Does Cupping Work?
After massaging the area to be treated, your therapist will place special cups, of varying sizes, on your body (back, hips, glutes, shoulders, etc). The suction force created by the
vacuum draws fluids (blood and lymph) into the affected areas. This suction force expands and breaks open tiny capillaries under the skin (there will be temporary redness). Your body then replenishes the cupped area with healthier blood flow, and stimulates proper and normal healing at a cellular level.

So... What is Butt Lift Cupping?
Butt Lift Cupping has become a popular and trendy body contouring treatment, and is a safe way to improve the appearance of the glutes without the need for surgery or invasive procedures. It is similar to other types of cupping treatments whereby vacuum suctioning is used to stimulate a natural process of healing and regeneration.
Butt Lift Cupping uses a medium to high suction to break down cellulite by sending it into the lymph nodes to be recirculated and/or flushed out of the body. This use of medium to high suction also increases hyperplasia (increase in the number of muscle fibers) and hypertrophy (increase in the size of individual muscle fibers) across the gluteal muscle region to:
lift and tone
improve the appearance of cellulite
This therapy can be used for booty “enhancement” prior to an event, or can be added to your regular skin and body care routine to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, and to give the glutes a more sculpted lift.
One butt cupping session is equivalent to the results you would see after doing more than 1,000 squats!
The Treatment Session
After a lymphatic drainage massage with an anti-cellulite oil, the therapist places large stationary cups on the glutes, hips, and/or “hip dips” to contour, lift, and tone the entire gluteal (butt) area. As during a regular massage session you will be properly draped with a towel for modesty. The entire procedure (which includes a scalp and foot treatment for head-to-toe relaxation) takes about 60 minutes.
Common Questions and Answers
Q: What is cellulite? A: Cellulite is a skin condition that occurs when adipose tissue (fat cells) grows directly under the skin. As this is occurring there are fibrous connective tissue cords pulling a
way from the skin. This results in the classic dimpled appearance. Typically we see cellulite around the hips, thighs, and gluteal region.
Q: How long is the treatment? A: The treatment is similar in length to a massage session and takes about 60 minutes.
Q: Is it painful or will I bruise? A: Butt Lift Cupping is not meant to cause pain. The sensation should be similar to massage
pressure. There may be a moment of discomfort if not enough oil is applied or the suction is too high. It is important to communicate with your therapist to avoid any pain or discomfort. Bruising may occur but is uncommon. During and/or after your session you may experience some redness in the treated area. This may take up to 2 hours post treatment to dissipate.
Q: How often should I come for treatments? A: To achieve your goal appearance it is recommended you follow this timeline:
Month 1: 1-2 times a week or 6-8 sessions Month 2-3: 1-2 times a month once desired look is achieved. You can continue with maintenance sessions as needed.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Results depend on lifestyle choices (proper diet and exercise) and frequency of treatments. Results are temporary but regular maintenance will improve your results over time. Combining this treatment with your exercise program and proper diet is a great way to achieve fantastic results!
Q: How much does it cost? A: We recommend you purchase a single session before you purchase a series. Single sessions are $179 but click here for special pricing. For special package pricing click here.
