Bellabaci Massage Cups, when “parked”, will at times leave a circular “cup kiss” much like a “love bite” or “hickey” which is not painful, just unsightly to some. The “bruised” circular marks are indicative of the Bellabaci Massage cup’s healing power.
These “cup kisses” occur:
- Wherever there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris or toxins present in the body. Cup kisses indicate that stagnation has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the skin surface, allowing fresh oxygenated blood to nourish the underlying area.
- The color and pattern of the cup kiss depends on the level of stagnation in the area, and can range from a bright red to dark purple, usually lasting 3 – 7 days. If there is no stagnation present, there will be a light reddening or glow of the skin surface which disappears in a few minutes to a couple of hours. Areas where there is old trauma or injury may require multiple treatments to remove all stagnation.
- You’ll find in follow up treatments that the cup kiss will not be as severe as the pathogens and toxins are systemically removed from the body.
- In order to avoid the cup kiss altogether, simply keep the Bellabaci Massage Cups moving. In the case of a headache, it might be difficult to do on one’s own and may require a helping hand from a friend or loved one.
