What is Cupping Therapy? 

Cupping is the application of silicone cups containing reduced air pressure (suction) onto the surface of the skin. A vacuum is created causing the skin to be sucked into the cup. To reduce and remove cellulite, they are moved along the skin in a gliding motion. Organic Argan or Coconut oil is used as a lubricant, which assists the cups in encouraging circulation and blood flow in stagnant areas, as well as nourishing the skin. 

How to use Celluvac


Apply oil to the skin as a lubricant. Gently squeeze the cup as shown in the picture left. Place the cup on your skin and start gliding the cup in circular motions all around the cellulite - affected area. Continue this for 5 minutes on each cellulite area at least once a day. Before you begin your first treatment, we strongly suggest you take a before photo. Continue with regular use for 6 weeks to see results. Make Celluvac part of your daily routine for long-term optimal results.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite occurs during the degeneration of the connective tissue and growth of fat cells. Cellulite will start to appear when excess fat is no longer dispersed evenly under the skin and the fat cells collect together in uneven bundles, causing the “orange peel” dimples to appear.This causes lymph flow to slow or remain static.  
The most common cause of cellulite is poor blood circulation, reduced lymphatic drainage, reduced blood flow and fluid retention, which generally alters subcutaneous fat cells  - turning them into cellulite.
  • Hormones
    Hormones play an important role in the development of cellulite. Increased or decreased amounts of estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are part of the cellulite production process. 

  • Genetics
    Certain genes are required for cellulite development. Genes may predispose an individual to particular characteristics associated with cellulite, such as gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat just underneath the skin, and circulatory insufficiency.
  • Diet
    People who eat too much fat, carbohydrates, or salt and too little fiber are likely to have greater amounts of cellulite. Constantly changing your diet has also been known to increase the signs of cellulite. 
  • Lifestyle
    Cellulite may be more prevalent in smokers, those who do not exercise, and those who sit or stand in one position for long periods of time.
  • Clothing
    Underwear with tight elastic across the buttocks (limiting blood flow) may contribute to the formation of cellulite.

Cupping therapy for cellulite

Celluvac cups are used for glide-cupping therapy - the cups are moved across the skin instead of left in one place. You need to apply a cream or oil to assist the gliding action. We recommend using coconut oil as there are many healing properties in this organic oil. If you prefer another scent you can add your favourite essential oil.

The history of cupping 

While the origin of Cupping Therapy remains unknown - the consensus is that the action of suction has been part of therapeutic efforts throughout human history. It has travelled across the world with migratory human tribes. These ancient cultures used hollowed out animal horns, bones, bamboo, nuts, seashells and gourds to purge bites, pustules, infections and skin lesions from the body, and many are still in use today. Ancient healers also used Cupping devices to draw evil spirits out of the body and to balance the humours. Earthenware and metal were fashioned into Cupping vessels before the development of glass.
The earliest recorded use of Cupping is from the famous Taoist alchemist and herbalist, Ge Hong (281–341 A.D.). While Cupping as a therapy was used in Egypt dating back some 3,500 years, where it's use is represented in hieroglyphic writing.  In ancient Greece, Hippocrates recommended the use of cups for a variety of ailments, while in the early 1900’s eminent British physician, Sir Arthur Keith, wrote how he witnessed Cupping performed with excellent success. 
Suction Cup Therapies remained a constant in professional medical treatment throughout Europe. It was practised by such famous physicians as Galen (131-200AD), Paracelsus (1493-1541), Ambroise Pare (1509-90) and surgeon Charles Kennedy (1826).
 
In China, extensive research has been carried out on Cupping, and the practice is a mainstay of government-sponsored hospitals of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The fundamental therapeutic value of Cupping has been documented through several thousand years of clinical and subjective experience and has advanced its application to many areas. 
Female healers in communities throughout the world practised the use of suction to heal, passing down their knowledge through family traditions and to apprentices. Cross-cultural studies show that women represented a major source and influence as healers in many cultures, with people travelling for days to reach a well known healer. 
Reliable sources hold that Cupping throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia was usually performed by the women in the communities. By the thirteenth century, however, universities including Biomedical studies in their curriculum excluded women. Despite the fact that non-official medicine has been poorly represented, women would have continued to play a major role in health care delivery. Had they been allowed to participate in the higher education arena, their contributions in natural healing modalities, and especially the safe and effective use and continuity of Cupping practices, would have been more substantial than by their male counterparts. 
By the mid 1800's, the Western Medical Establishment had imposed upon society, their scientific model of medicine, defining medicine by making the body transparent, focusing on and treating the inside, in preference to the outside. Because Cupping (along with many other Holistic Healing Arts) was a surface treatment, it was inconsistent with this new Biomedical paradigm, which moved away from hands on personal contact and manipulative therapies of generations past.
Although the use of Cupping has remained popular throughout many cultures worldwide, the 20th century witnessed it's widespread decrease in many Anglo-Saxon societies. Even the North American Indians used Buffalo Horn, seashells, gourds and bones for Cupping, but as their culture was decimated and its people herded into reservations, their traditions of health maintenance and healing were also lost.
