Cupping glasses for dry cupping and cupping massage
Many people associate the term "cupping" with a bloody procedure from the Middle Ages. However, basically a glass is placed on the skin in which a negative pressure is created. This causes the skin to be sucked into the jar. The jars are either left in place for a while or a massage is performed with the jars, using circular movements.
Cupping has a great importance in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). For over 2000 years, cupping has been used as an external medicine in the holistic treatment approach of TCM. It serves to activate the self-healing powers.
Basically, there are three types of cupping:
- Bloody cupping: Here, the skin is scratched before the cupping cups are applied.
- Dry cupping: The cups are placed on uninjured skin and evacuated.
- Cupping massage: With the help of a little massage oil, the bell is put on and guided in circular movements over the skin.
Cupping set variants
The most original variant of cupping is the so-called fire cupping. For this, bells made of glass are used and the vacuum is created by means of a flame.
Nowadays, in addition to the bells made of glass, there are a variety of different "cupping devices":
- Cupping glasses with vacuum pump
- Cupping glasses made of silicone
- cupping glasses with suction ball
- electric cupping set
Mostly, the bells of the cupping glasses set with pump are made of unbreakable plastic and are very suitable.
Cupping set variants
The areas of application of cupping today are essentially medical, for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. However, in recent years, cupping application has become increasingly popular in beauty salons. Cupping glass sets therefore also find their justification in the treatment of cellulite and wrinkles.
Cupping glasses are often used on the face and in the area of the legs and buttocks. Mostly these are silicone cupping glasses or small bells with a pump ball. The cupping method is then a cupping massage with oil, which promotes blood circulation and the removal of toxins in the tissues. This promises a stronger connective tissue and thus an anti aging effect.
Another possibility of application is fascia therapy by means of cupping massage. It can be used to loosen stuck and hardened fascia. This promotes mobility and can contribute to the relief of myofascial pain.
Please note that cupping can cause bruising, which may take a few days to disappear. Especially people suffering from a blood clotting disorder should refrain from cupping. Pregnant women should also consult their physician before cupping.

Who would like to cupping traditionally is the variant of glass with the so-called fire cupping certainly interesting. However, this is only possible by a second person who also brings some experience. These are more suitable for practices and people in health professions.
For the application in the domestic environment it is recommended to buy a cupping set with pump. The advantages are
- an easier dosage of the vacuum,
- some parts of the body are easier to reach and
- easier handling.
For cupping in the face (facial cupping), silicone cups are suitable because of the soft material. Cupping bells with a pump ball as well, because here a particularly precise dosage of the vacuum is possible.
The prices for cupping sets are very different. A small silicone set is available from 10,-€, whereas high-quality and extensive sets can cost up to 100,-€. Which variant is suitable for you depends on your desired application.
If you want a large-area, dry cupping application, e.g. on the back, you will have to resort to a set with many bells. For this purpose, it is recommended to purchase a set with at least 20 medium and large bells.
If you want to treat specific areas of the neck or legs, a medium set is right for you. The bell mix may cover the full size spectrum so that you are equipped as universally as possible. Ideal for beginners.
If you have the goal to reduce the wrinkles in your face, the use of silicone bells or bells with ball pump is recommended. Here already 2 - 3 different sizes are completely sufficient. However, since you rarely know in advance what will be in a few months, it is advisable if the provider also supplies individual bells to your set.
Cupping glasses have been known for thousands of years and have been established as an effective method in traditional Chinese medicine. Cupping can be used both medically and aesthetically. There are several varieties of cupping sets, including vacuum pump cupping glasses, silicone cupping glasses and electric cupping sets.
Applications range from the treatment of diseases to the reduction of cellulite and wrinkles. However, it is important to note that cupping can cause bruising and that certain groups of people, such as those with blood clotting disorders or pregnant women, should exercise caution. Overall, cupping glasses offer a versatile and effective method of promoting health and well-being.
What our customers say
I didn't expect such good quality. It works great - and even on my own, I can now get relief. It's great that you exist.
I have been using the mat for almost 2 weeks now and thanks to the audio book and eBook I got a very good introduction to using the mat. The materials are of high quality and I am sure that I will enjoy it for a long time. My back is already thanking me and my well-being has increased with this use. Thank you very much!
I bought the mat when I was home on sick leave with lumbago. Right after the first time I used it, it was a lot better. It helped me a lot and was a very good investment. I was also able to use the mat immediately without a cloth and shirt. The first few minutes took a bit of getting used to, but then it quickly went very well.Now my sister has it right now and is fighting her back pain. The shipping was also super fast. I am really thrilled.
It is sensational how I can relax and fall asleep on it.
My back is very well supplied with blood and pleasantly warm afterwards.
The pillow for my head is also great.
I feel totally relaxed.
I can only recommend it to everyone 🙏
I bought 2 of these at once. One for me and one for my boyfriend's birthday.
It has a very good quality. Perfect for relaxing. I am very satisfied!
& Fast delivery !!! I can recommend to everyone
The products are high quality and everything went smoothly. The instructions are helpful and interesting. Great team!
I received my acupressure mat about 1 week ago (shipping speed: top 👍).
Now I lie on the mat every evening for about 30 minutes (possibility to test first: Top 👍).
....and I am thrilled. In addition to my muscle building exercises / stretching exercises, the mat is a great addition.
I look forward to relaxing every evening 🙃 and apparently I am "pain free" - referring to the tips on the mat. I'm still working on the other pain-free 😅.
(Product and scope: Top 💪)
Kind regards and thank you
I am a nurse and suffer from constant back tension. I have to say that laying directly on the mat is not as bad as I thought. After 5 minutes you feel warmth and a light tapping on the pain points. I will never give your needle mat away again. I also recommend it to others, it deserves 5 stars!
The set is easy to handle for a layperson. The contents of the accompanying eBook are just as understandable and convincing. Now I have to make actual and further experiences from the frequent handling and application of the cupping method. I would like to emphasise the great customer service of the company with my queries and concerns. Many thanks for that.
Every day, for the past 3 months, I have been relaxing on the acupressure mat for 30 minutes and feel maximally relaxed afterwards. My back pain has improved considerably. My son got the newly ordered set for his birthday and he is also thrilled.
I thought about it for a long time and then bought them and don't regret it for a second! In the meantime, I also put them in my bed at night to use them again immediately before sleeping. I found the tips pleasant from the start and didn't need the cloth. Very relaxing, finally deep sleep again!
I can only say that it is the best purchase I have made so far!
For almost 3 years I have been suffering from a very severe tension in my whole back, which has been aggravated by a tooth operation and very strong depressions have developed. My whole jaw is so tense that since the operation I have started to clench my jaw at night and have severe phantom pains, which in turn has drastically worsened the tension in my neck and back. I have also been in therapy and under medical treatment for over 2 years. A good quarter of a year ago I stupidly dislocated my thoracic vertebra and waited too long to do so, and got the receipt for it. My dentist gave me another prescription for manual therapy with hot air for my jaw (actually) but it wasn't supposed to reach my jaw. In almost all sessions he only had to work on my back because of the pain. In one session I even had to cry because of the pain when he worked on my sciatica. I couldn't sleep at night because I just couldn't lie down any more. After that I was so tired that I decided to buy this mat. At first I was sceptical but I also thought what else do I have to lose and I have to say that from the first session I found it so mega cool that I already fell asleep the third time and the best thing is that I am actually looser in the back, I can sleep better at night again and I really feel better in general! I have had this mat for 2 weeks now and have been lying on it every night and will continue to use it daily in the future! I can only say that this mat is really damn good and definitely worth the money!
Many many thanks for the great product, but especially for the audio books and the Ebook so you have at least an approach to how you can relax with the mat and what else is possible with it!
P.S. sorry for this long text but I just wanted to make clear how simple and easy it is to get back into life with such great things, because the therapy I do is psychotherapy with a focus on tension and pain and I have to say I can even use a lot of it on the mat to relax!
I tested the mat extensively as soon as it arrived and was thrilled from the first second. My back tension is much better and I feel more comfortable all around. Definitely a great purchase!
A friend told me about BACKLAxx. She raved about having hardly any pain in her back. After two weeks, she was still very enthusiastic, so I ordered the mat and pillow.
I have three herniated discs, sciatica problems and, due to a lot of stress, neck pain with accompanying headaches.
By relaxing on the mat, I have my pain largely under control. After work for 20 minutes and again before going to bed and I can move and sleep properly for a long time. I can only highly recommend BACKLAxx.
Since I've had the mat and the pillow, I feel visibly better. My tensions are gradually dissolving, my headaches and migraine attacks are becoming less frequent, and I sleep more peacefully and, above all, more deeply.
All in all, a well-rounded solution and, with the two free audio books and the free e-book, a great offer at a very good price.
I highly recommend this product.
