Combine these genies with the ancient traditional cupping therapy and you get the kiss of wellness! Bellabaci cups are made from medical grade silicone that squeezes easily, allowing you to use this cupping therapy on your own in the privacy of your own home! Apply your favourite genie in a bottle, squeeze the cup and set it on your area of concern, glide it and squeeze to release and you are on your way to relief from problems like stagnation, fluid retention, toxin elimination, lymphatic drainage, pain relief and more!

How to kiss your body better:

The Bellalaci cups work on acupressure points to relieve the stagnation of Qi and blood.

Use the cup on tight, taut sore muscles (read shoulder muscles due to excessive work on the computer, driving and more!)  to break up knots and remove build-up of lactic acid.

Use the cup on your neck to relieve headaches and migraines.

Use of cup on the stomach aids in stimulating peristalsis, alleviating constipation.

Using the cup on painful joints eliminates acid build-up. This helps eliminate stagnation, intensifying metabolism and dermal respiration in the massaged area creating elasticity making skin supple while strengthening and repairing tissues and joints by creating negative pressure and drawing blood to that area.

Use it to tone and firm the body and getting rid of cellulite. Cupping therapy activates, stimulates, and rejuvenates the cellulite layer with a reverse deep tissue massage technique creating a fresh flow of oxygenated blood and helping to release waste and toxins from the fat cells. It aids in breaking and removal of the orange peel cellulite look.

Use it to relax and rejuvenate the body; it world wonders on the autonomous nervous system, the rhythmic act of cupping strokes is very relaxing!

Use it to achieve overall wellness by detoxifying the body, improving circulation, and energizing body to achieve a deep state of rejuvenation and relaxation.

Kiss your face beautiful:

A daily two-minute facial massage ritual with the bellabaci cup and your favourite genie is all you need to kiss your face beautiful. This relaxing procedure that can be done easily by you at home, takes charge of your wrinkles, fine lines, under eye bags, capillaries and sagging skin to give you a radiant glowing skin! A total anti-ageing experience, it stimulates the fibroblast cells that produce natural elastin and collagen, improving skin texture. The small cups can be used to plump up the lip line resulting in volumized oh-so-kissable lips! And all this in the privacy of your own home!

We try it out:

If you are one of those who loves to go to a spa to enjoy the indulgent treatment of a massage or a facial, then worry not! The Pearl Spa at The Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah has this Bellabaci cupping massage sorted for you.

Unless you’re familiar with cupping and Chinese medicine, the first time you heard of cupping was probably with Olympian Michael Phelps’ red-and-purple spotted back. He said it helped in reducing muscle tension, speeding recovery while improving overall performance. But worry not, this one is not leaving any red, purple spots!

There are two types of cupping: Glass or silicone cups are placed on major muscle groups, making a suction with the skin to increase blood flow to the area. They are left there for 10-or-so minutes, this is referred to as stagnant cupping.

Dynamic cupping, which is what we do with the Bellabaci silicone cups has the same technique with the technician creating the same suction, but she continuously moves the cups, dragging them toward the lymphatic system, allowing for release of toxins.

The therapist leads me to the beautiful spa located on the ground floor of the resort and begins the massage with the Bellabaci pure essential concentrates Renew and Revive (there are four of them: renew, revive, deep relax and detox) and a set of large and small cups. She applies the oils to the body with brisk strokes of her hands, immediately putting me in a relaxed state! This allows for the cups to glide smooth when applied. The flexible silicone cups are gently pinched before application to provide the desired pressure and are gently moved over areas of pain and tension and unlike traditional methods of massage, these cups can be used directly over bones and joints. The pinch creates a suction which is called a ‘Bellabaci kiss’, a vacuum that is maintained with the skin until the seal with the skin is broken by pinching and removing the cup. She combines the techniques of Swedish and deep tissue massage using her hands and the cup to relieve pain and detoxify the body.  I feel the tension and knots receding!

She applies brisk strokes with the cup and her hand, sliding them around my oiled-up body like chess pieces on a board. Some areas, where I held the most tension, produced a deep, pinching sensation. But moments after sliding the cup away, a release followed. The use of cups allows for the stretching and opening of muscle tissue, creating space to drain toxins from the cells, she explains.

I also loved the Bellabaci facial cupping.  The cups give the facial skin and muscles an immediate lift and boost in radiance.  They are small in size and perfect even when you travel. I use them over my serum in the evenings and feel they help with product penetration.  The cups “plump” the skin and give a more youthful look.

I am booking my next appointment soon!
