Cupping Therapy

If you're considering adding another alternative treatment to your business, the ancient art of Cupping Therapy is one that has been gaining popularity and recognition within the past year or so.

What exactly is cupping?!

Cupping is a form of alternative therapy in which cups are placed on the skin, particularly the back, or other areas of pain to create suction. It is actually an ancient form of healing that dates all the way back to Egyptian, Chinese, as well as Middle Eastern cultures. Although it's not too widely recognized in our Western Culture yet, it is definitely a therapy that is gaining more and more popularity within this year alone! It is especially beneficial to your clients who are looking for ways to heal pain naturally, without any use of medication.

How does it work?!

There are actually three types of cupping that are commonly practiced:

Dry Cupping
Dry cupping uses only the suction of the cups for treatment purposes. The suction creates a small amount of pressure in the back, which helps to stabilize blood flow which in turn, is said to believe promote the healing of various aliments.  

Wet Cupping
During wet cupping, a suction is created using a cup that is left in place for about three minutes. The cup is then removed and then a small scalpel is used to make superficial skin incisions. A very minute quantity of blood is then drawn out. The reason being is that the toxins in the body are drawn out from the blood.

Fire Cupping
Fire Cupping is when heat is applied to the cups to maximize blood circulation. By adding fire to the inside of the cup, oxygen is removed and there is a high pressure within the suction cup.



This treatment offers a variety of benefits for your clients.

The British Cupping Society says cupping therapy can treat a variety of conditions. This has not been backed up by studies, however, according to WebMD, cupping therapy could potentially be used to treat*:

- Blood disorders such as anemia and hemophilia
- Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis and fibromyalgia
- Fertility and gynecological disorders
- Skin problems such as eczema and acne
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Migraine
- Anxiety and depression
- Bronchial congestion caused by allergies and asthma
- Varicose veins

Bottoms Up! Spas Helping Clients Put Their Best Butt...Forward?

Help your clients prepare for summer by offering
"Tush Treatments" - like a facial, but for the other end!
Recently, I was reading an article in Dermascope magazine called Fanny Facials, and at first I thought...hmm, are we really doing this? But then I thought....skin is just skin, so why not?

Our rear ends are under a lot of pressure these days....both literally and figuratively. Many of us sit on it for hours a day. We put it through excruciating pain to get it looking just how we like when we are dancing or prancing. We use it for virtually every lower body movement we make. Why not make its skin smooth, shiny, and beautiful too?

For spas and estheticians, Tush Treatments are becoming all the rage! If you are comfortable with scrubbing and polishing clients' behinds, this can be an excellent source of revenue for you - especially at this time of year! Clients everywhere are baring all, and that includes their rears. Make them feel beautiful, front AND back!

Sample Suggested Tush Treatment Protocol
If you have a basic facial room, this simple protocol can be easily followed to target hydration and toning "back there!"

  1. Rear end/back/thigh skin analysis
    PRO TIP: Excellent time to discuss waxing down under with your client! 
  2. Cleanse
  3. Exfoliate
  4. Steam
  5. Extractions (as needed)
    PRO TIP: Extractions in this area is little different from other skin - the hair follicles are different, and squeezing will only serve to spread bacteria and cause more acne. 
  6. High Frequency for acne (as needed)
    PRO TIP: High frequency will need to be on a higher setting than you would use on the face.
  7. Gently massage, using upward strokes and a light, non-comedogenic massage lotion or oil.
  8. Apply applicable mask (acne, hydrating, etc.)
  9. Apply toner
  10. Moisturize
    PRO TIP: Since the rear end is covered by undergarments and pants, keep the moisturizer light to avoid clogging pores and creating more problems than you are solving!)
A great add-on or follow-up treatment to your Bottoms Up treatment is a spray tan! Everyone feels better with a tan, and spray tanning goes a long way to help skin all over look tight and toned! Offer a full body spray tan at a slightly discounted price as an add-on to the Bottoms Up treatment, and watch your profits explode!

Best part about this treatment is coming up with the cutest, catchiest name you can! I am partial to Skin by Molly's "Shiny Hiney" treatment! What are the best names you can think of?

Provide More Than Relaxation for Your Clients - Help Cleanse Their Energies with Sound Therapy

In recent years, spas have been embracing and expanding their holistic approach to include more treatments that focus not only on the physical body, but on the body's energy as well. Many of today's spa goers are interested in spas who offer a whole-body approach, and allow for spiritual and energetic "cleansing," as well as a deep tissue massage or European Facial.


There are so many aspects to this whole-body approach, but one of the most popular is sound therapy. More and more resorts and spas are adding sound therapy components to their traditional services.


Studies have found that sound and music have a profound effect on the human body. Physically, slow, calm rhythm in music can slow the heart rate, slow and deepen breathing patterns, and lower blood pressure, all of which assists a person in reaching a more relaxed, meditative state.


How can you assist your clients in reaching the more relaxed or meditative state they crave when they come to your spa? Even the addition of small details, such as chiming Tingsha Cymbals at the beginning and end of a massage, or the careful selection of music that is played in your spa, will increase your client's level of relaxation. 


Sound therapy for relaxation is known to stimulate the body and mind, as well as recharge the body's batteries. By using vibrational sound therapy, energy "blockages" are released, ensuring healing takes place on the deepest level by balancing the body's energy. 


One popular instrument used in vibrational sound therapy is the Tibetan Singing Bowl. Technically classified as a type of bell, Singing Bowls are usually made of metal, with the bottom surface resting against the ground or table. Singing bowls are played by striking the rim with a padded mallet. To extend the sound and vibrations, singing bowls can also be played by slowly running the striker around the rim of the bowl. By maintaining even pressure as you run the striker around the rim of the bowl, the vibration will fill the bowl, and the sound will continue to grow until the bowl is singing at its fullest volume. Once this happens, you can vary your speed and pressure to transform the sound and intensity of the vibrations.


Tibetan Singing Bowls are often used
to achieve a deeper meditative state.
Give your clients the opportunity to deeply cleanse their energies and clear their minds by playing the singing bowl for them at the beginning of a service, or even keep a singing bowl in your relaxation room for your clients to use! Clients will remember your spa as "the one that cleansed me!"
