As more and more people discover the benefits of Cupping Therapy for themselves as well as their patients, a lot of questions come up as to when you can - and more importantly can NOT - treat with either Silicone or Vacuum Cups. Please see the following guidelines for when NOT to cup!
We see a lot of posts on social media from people asking why their cups won't stick to a specific area. Loss of suction is mainly related to the adhesiveness between the cup and skin. If the adhesiveness is good then the suction will usually hold for an extended period of time. But if the adhesiveness is poor, then the suction becomes weak and loosens in short time.
