Facial Cupping Treatment
This is a treatment in which Ziggie Bergman has developed her own style of facial cupping. Personally, I love this treatment. I have found it very relaxing and yet at the same time I can see the changes in my facial structure and how it tones up the muscles of the face with regular treatments.
Cupping has been around for centuries in Chinese, Tibetan, Vietnamese and Japanese Healing traditions. This treatment uses soft silicone cups as a way to shift stagnant constrictions in the face, encourage lymphatic drainage and tone the facial muscles.
Facial Cupping is helpful for clients suffering from a range of ailments related to the head and neck area which are:
- Sinus congestion and Hay fever
- Headaches and migraines
- Facial paralysis and Bell’s Palsy
- Bruxism (teeth grinding)
It does this by relaxing the muscle structure of the face, shifting the build-up of mucous and fluid and encouraging lymphatic drainage. Toxins get removed and this helps to improve immunity.
Other Benefits are:
- Reduces wrinkles and lines
- Helps reduce pore size
- Helps reduce puffy eyes
- Firms and tones skin and muscles
- Increases blood circulation
- Clears skin
- Gives a healthy glow to the skin
- Sculpts the neck and jaw line
- Relaxes facial tension
Are there any contra-indications to Facial Cupping?
- Active eczema or psoriasis on the face
- Open wounds, acne or burns
- Botox or fillers – wait 3 weeks afterwards
- Skin cancer
- Whiplash or arthritis in the neck area
- Infectious skin conditions
- Recent surgery
- Very sensitive skin
How often to have treatments?
I recommend weekly sessions for 6 weeks followed by once a month maintenance.
If it is for a health condition such as Bell’s Palsy, then I would recommend 3 treatments for two weeks each week and then monitor the condition from there on.
How much is a treatment?
60 mins session is €70
30 mins session is €40
15mins session can be added to other treatments.
Facial Cupping is so much more than a beauty treatment. It works on your physical, mental and emotional levels by relieving the physical imbalances that manifest on our faces, there from our emotional and mental issues.
Every part of us is interconnected. The eyes it is said are the windows to the soul, our faces are the outer expression of our inner world and what we show the world. Relieve the tension in the face and the body can follow suit.
So relaxing and amazing, as if Mary had drawn my face when I was a child. Such beautiful soft skin and the wonderful intoxicating aroma of the oils seeping into my face left me feeling my skin was as a lovely little girl.
It was a deeply, relaxing, therapeutic facial. The contrast between cupping & the mushroom crystals was lovely & refreshing. The oils smelled amazing & felt so nourishing on my skin. I feel like my face has been released of all tension.
