Fire Cupping
Licensed Acupuncturists Fire cup specific acu-points for enhanced healing effects in association with acupuncture & other therapies. The cup is briefly heated with a flame which creates the suction. The cup is then placed over the acupuncture needle or an acupuncture point or an area of pain where stagnation of Qi and blood occurs. This is a decompressing treatment that helps reduce pain and stiffness.


This Treatment is effective for low back pain, colds, menstrual irregularities, gastrointestinal disorders, sciatica, muscle weakness and more, using stationary, sliding & flash (fire) methods of cupping.

Tonification and sedation cupping methods are used to harmonize the body. Cupping detoxification program will cleanse and soften the skin and strengthen the entire body system.










On a deeper therapeutic level, massage cupping. otherwise known as moving cups, is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, chronic headache, fibromyalgia and neuralgia. Contracted, congested muscle tissue will soften quickly with only a few minutes of Negative Pressure Massage Cupping.


Used on the back, the larger cups mimic the rolling action of myofacial release without discomfort to the client. The variety of movements can be long and draining, circular and vibrational for stimulation and for areas of stubborn knots and rigid tissue. The skin will redden with strong pressure, indicating that the circulation has been brought to the surface.

Application of liniments, analgesics, tinctures and essential oils immediately post treatment will facilitate absorption of the product deeper into the tissue. The increased blood supply to the local muscles and skin will bring nourishment and stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems to carry away stagnation and toxins.

Another benefit of negative pressure is that it really feels great, and is not an irritant to the skin or body. It draws the inflammation out, yet does not add to it. The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body. It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment. Clients are surprised at how relaxed, warm and light they feel – hours... sometimes even days afterwards.

Massage Cupping
Almost any massage therapy can be enhanced by the addition of Negative Pressure Massage.

The wide range of cupping sets that are now available allow for a variety of applications and benefits - the traditional fire cups made of a very thick glass, vacuum sets that include removable +/- magnets, rubber cups whose pliability assists in stubborn conditions and eases over bony prominence, the Magnetic

Acupressure Suction Cups (MASC), beautiful glass cups with rubber bulbs and micro-sets for the joints and energy points, and in reflexology for the hands, feet and face.

Micro-cup sets and magnetic micro-cups allow for massage cupping to be used for joints and points, and in reflexology for the hands, feet and face.

Cellulite Treatments
Another profound application of the negative pressure technique is in the treatment of cellulite.

The upscale spa industry has a myriad of equipment to choose from to treat cellulite, and Baguanfa performs many of those same functions manually, and with much less discomfort.

Light pressure provides drainage, while the heavier applications can be used to stimulate circulation and loosen the connective tissues or orange peel appearance.

The affected areas should be treated prior to any body wrapping, to enhance the absorption of the topical.

The temperature of a soaked linens or ace bandages is not as crucial since circulation has already been stimulated and brought to the surface, so a more comfortable and effective wrap is possible.

Clients also enjoy the warm feeling of cupped, stimulated tissue being painted with soothing algae, mud or gel before being cocooned.

Facial Baguanfa
Women in Asia, Russia and Europe have been utilizing these remarkable negative pressure facial exercises for rejuvenation and maintenance for many, many generations.

Protocols for the face use the small cups to vacuum and lift the facial tissue, mimicking the pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. It is a manual method that replicates the effects of equipment currently in use in most of the top aesthetic establishments.

Reflexology Treatments with cupping methods

Reflexology is the science and art that supports the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands, ears and face which correspond to all the glands, organs and other parts of the body. It is a natural, non-invasive way of stimulating internal organs, increasing circulation and restoring bodily functions to normal.

Reflexology treatments are easily enhanced with micro-cups, but especially the MASC (Magnetic Apparatus Suction Cups). These magnetic micro-cups can also be used for addressing joint discomfort and trigger points.

Reflexology can reduce stress, relieve pain, increase energy, improve circulation, cleanse the body of myriad of toxins, improve health, strengthen the immune system, enhance creativity and productivity. Reflexology can assist in weight loss and in overcoming addictions.

Bio-Magnetic Field Therapy
Biomagnetic Field Therapy holds so many all encompassing, powerful effects that no one description of how they exert their positive therapeutic effects could adequately describe all the myriad and complex ways it effects mind and body.

However, from the perspective of bio-magnetic's, health is based upon the individual cells of the body vibrating at a characteristic normal frequency. Disease, on the other hand, represents an abnormal change in cellular vibration.

The therapeutic application of magnets, at the deepest level, is based on the principle of restoring normal cellular vibration, positively influencing the relationships throughout the entire body-mind process.
