Cupping Massage

Susannah Makram on Cupping Massage @ Chelsea Private Clinic and        @ BVLGARI Hotels London 

The use of Cupping Therapy is documented in history of most great cultures and civilisations of the past. The earliest available records revealing extensive use by the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures.


Cellulite: The MOST important FACTS & The most EFFECTIVE recommendations

The connective tissue of women is much more elastic than that of men.
Useful for pregnancy – but not great for the appearance of skin…
The parallel fibres of connective tissue permit bulging fat cells to push through – which unfortunately are visible!

A small consolation:

Even otherwise slim young women have problems with cellulite dimples. As mentioned above, this is almost always caused by loose connective tissue.
Age is also a significant factor. Since the body reduces the musculature with age, this makes fatty tissue more visible. This can favour existing cellulite.
Fat cells produce the important female hormone oestrogen – and are therefore strongly protected by the body.
Oestrogen-based contraceptive pills contain relatively high doses of oestrogen. This can further increase cellulite. In contrast, modern micropills contain only very low doses of oestrogen. So-called ‘minipills’ contain none.

What can help?

Personalised healthy nutrition and adequate exercise are especially important. Discuss your health goals with one of our advisors today or book an appointment with Susannah.

It’s been shown that salt and algae baths can alleviate cellulite dimples. This only works with regular use. Algae have a positive effect on fat metabolism. Salt baths are effective if in addition to dimples there are also swellings due to water retention.

Cupping massage stimulates the circulation of the blood and also activates the burning of fat. Manual Lymphatic Drainage works well if the cellulite is accompanied by water retention.

Carefully recommended nutritional supplements can also improve the external appearance of cellulite. Also, increase the elasticity of the skin, as well as applied products that can help by:

  • Stimulating the microcirculation
  • Exerting a positive influence on collagen synthesis
  • Assisting the drainage effect

Cupping massage uses gentle pressure to alleviate soft tissue tension. This is a particularly relaxing and relieving sensation.

Cupping therapy is very versatile. It can be modified to achieve a variety of techniques, ranging from subtle lymphatic drainage to deep tissue release. Combined cupping massage and gentle MLD is popular for targeting areas of cellulite.

DID YOU KNOW? Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It’s thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin.

Cupping massage and lymphatic drainage techniques are refined based on clients’ treatment goals.

When circulation is sluggish or compromised in an injured or diseased area of the body, the cells receive insufficient oxygen.  There can be a local build-up of waste products. This why it’s such a popular treatment technique at Cosmetech Chelsea Private Clinic.

Cellulite is a combination of fat, toxic cellular wastes and fluids that form a gel-like material. Some of the science: Poor micro-circulation causes damage and a build-up of waste products.

There are different types of cupping therapy. These include fire cupping, TCM cupping therapy etc. THESE TYPES of cupping may cause temporary bruising and soreness. It’s depending upon the degree of suction created by the vacuum and the level of internal stagnation.

At Susannah Makram Clinics cupping massage is the technique used and refined accordingly. Read on…

What is cupping used to help with?

Cupping and osteopathy

Cupping massage is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles. It’s a gentle treatment to help with anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.

For fluid retention (weight loss) and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin. We discuss oils at the end – read on. Then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.

Cupping massage @ Chelsea Private Clinic and @ BVLGARI Hotels London Knightsbridge SPA is a treatment technique used as part of aesthetic (and non-aesthetic) osteopathy.

Detox Cupping Massage 

  • Targets Cellulite
  • Tones and tightens

Normal cupping can leave marks. Little papers are set on fire under glass cups. This creates suction as they sit on your back. While there’s suction with cupping massage, it doesn’t leave a mark. This is because the cups continue to move.

That’s why cupping massage with detoxifying body oils and gentle MLD is popular for targeting areas of cellulite.
