Facial cupping Toronto

  • Facial cupping is relaxing and effective for both clinical and cosmetic goals. This cupping therapy can be incorporated into any 1 hour cosmetic or clinical appointment at no extra cost.
  • Unlike cupping on the body which leaves marks, facial cupping does not leave marks but instead promote fresh blood and circulation to the face. We only use the highest quality smooth glass cups (not plastic) and stone or crystal gua sha tools.
  • Our traditional Chinese facial rejuvenation techniques are targeted towards your chosen cosmetic goals or facial/scalp related health condition such as TMJ or sinus issues.
  • Enhance complexion and reduce acne.
  • Facial cupping increases blood and lymph flow to your facial tissue using gentle suction (negative pressure) which improves the quality and tone of skin.
  • This cupping therapy encourages collagen production, which restores the skins elasticity and texture. You will immediately notice a lovely warm flushed feeling to the face. Facial cupping can achieve many aesthetic and clinical goals.
  • Following facial cupping treatments at our downtown Toronto clinic, expect your skin to be looking fresh, relaxed and healthy. Giving you that fresh from vacation glow!
  • We can use the technique to target most issues related to the face scalp and neck.

Facial cupping or facial gua sha as part of any 1 hour session or book a la carte

Our facial cupping or facial gua sha sessions can be added (if advised by your therapist) at no extra charge to most cosmetic acupuncture appointments. Both techniques generally involve less acupuncture and are a great way to experience an ancient Chinese medicine beauty secret.

Like all of our other value add-on services, there is no extra charge for the service in 1 hour appointments. Facial cupping/facial gua sha is only applied when recommended by your therapist. Let us use our expertise to curate the best treatment for your body.

Facial Cupping Frequently Asked Questions

Rest assured that our facial cupping rejuvenation techniques are different than body cupping and it is extremely rare to leave marks on the skin. The cups used for facial cupping do not involve fire/flames and are tiny in comparison to the cups we use for fire cupping on the body. We only use the highest quality smooth glass facial cups on the market so we can control the amount of suction and make sure it’s soothing.

Absolutely not; facial cupping feels wonderful! The suction is not as intense as fire cupping used on the body. You will especially love it if you are someone that enjoys having facial rejuvenation treatments done. Often clients fall asleep during facial cupping. Please note the treatment does include a tiny bit of pain-free acupuncture. It will be minimal and very comfortable. We promise.

Facial cupping works to improve your skin from adolescence to your senior years.

  • Teens/20’s – Facial cupping treatments can benefit teens- 20’s for helping to rid waste products in the skin promoting blemish free, flawless skin.
  • For aging skin/30+ – Facial rejuvenation cupping encourages young and tight skin by working with the blood system, collagen and elastin keeping the tissues supple and radiant!

No. Our services are not like traditional facial rejuvenation services. We do not use steam, or oxygen nor do we perform extractions or do extensive facial massage.

Yes! You can add facial cupping or gua sha facial to any clinical acunpuncture OR cosmetic acupuncture 1 hour appointment at NO additional charge!! This is a unique value service is not available at most acupuncture clinics. Please keep in mind that not all 1 hour appointments (by default) include this service.

The ultimate decision is left up to the discretion of your therapist and have the final say because we value your health and will only proceed if it is safe to do so.

If your facial cupping appointment is for a health issue and not cosmetic related, we advise you to book a 1 hour clinical acupuncture session so we have the time to include acupuncture for it’s deeper healing benefits. You are still welcome to book a 45 minute first time appointment should you decide not to have acupuncture.

All first time facial cupping/facial gua sha appointments must be 45 minutes. We need this time to properly do a safe intake and extra consultation. You can book a follow up facial cupping session for 30 minutes after you have completed your initial 45 minute session. For facial pain issues we advise patients to book a full 1 hour clinical acupuncture appointment.

Sure but keep in mind that the a la carte facial cupping/facial gua sha appointments involves less needling. If you wish to have more acupuncture included, please book either a 1 hour cosmetic acupuncture appointment OR a 1 hour clinical acupuncture appointment.

No. You will need to wait at least 8 weeks until we can administer the treatment. Both Facial Cupping/Facial Gua Sha will interfere with your recent procedure. For other non-cosmetic recent facial surgeries (such as dental work etc.), please contact us prior to booking.
