  • Tip One: Dynamic Cupping is as beneficial as it is dangerous, do not cup without proper training.
  • Tip Two: Dynamic Cupping does not have to be painful to be efficient.
  • Tip Three: Dynamic Cupping does not have to mark and still be beneficial.
  • Tip Four: Invest in clear cups instead of colored ones. Clear cups allow you to see through, assess skin coloration, and lift constantly.
  • Tip Five: The skin color under the cup should look pink, and the skin should not rise more than 1-2 cm.
  • Tip Six: We recommend hot water, soap, and hospital-grade cleaner for regular cleaningCleaning your cups doesn’t need to be complicated.
  • Tip Seven: Avoid cupping type 1 Diabetic and auto-immune compromised clients. Their ability to heal is reduced.
  • Tip Eight: We recommend gentle cupping for the older population. As one age, the skin and vascular elasticity reduce, presenting a higher risk of damaging the blood vessels. Remember to look for anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs. Cupping is not recommended when taking these medications.
  • Tip Nine: Avoid using more than 4 cups at once. Applying too many cups impedes safe cup monitoring and increases the risk of damaging the body.
  • Tip Ten: Keep cups away from uneducated hands and children. Cupping is as dangerous as it is effective when in the wrong hands.
  • Tip Eleven: Gliding the cups is the safest way to cup without injuring the body. The glide provides less tensile pressure than parking cups and minimizes the risk of damaging blood vessels and marking your clients.
  • Tip Twelve: Assess your cups within 10 seconds of placement to ensure safe cupping practice.
  • Tip Thirteen: Avoid parking a cup over a neurovascular bundle, as it can interfere with blood flow and irritate nerves.
  • Tip Fourteen: Skin discoloration should disappear after 1 minute of removing the cups. If it does not, it means that the suction is too strong.
