Chinese Cupping Therapy for Cellulite: Bellabaci Cups Giveaway!

24 Oct

Okay, ladies.  I need another volunteer.  Who is up for helping me put these Bellabaci cups to the test?

Please enter the giveaway by commenting below.  Other ways to earn additional entries are listed at the end of this post.

About Cupping Therapy for Cellulite

Bellabaci cups are based on the ancient Chinese practice of cupping therapy.  Cupping is the opposite of traditional massage where pressure is applied to the skin.  Instead, cupping is a form of “negative pressure therapy.” It creates a negative pressure over the area, stimulating stagnant fluids and increasing circulation.

Traditionally, a vacuum effect is created in the cups by lighting a small flame inside before placing them over the skin.  The Bellabaci cups are much easier to use because they are made of silicone.   You simply squeeze the cup to remove the air as you place the cup over the skin.  It’s easy to control the amount of suction, too.

Bellabaci cups are ideal for “gliding cupping”  where the cups are moved across the skin instead of left in one place.  You need to apply a lubricant to facilitate the gliding action.  I’ve been using a homemade one made from coconut oil blended with essential oils that are known to have anti cellulite properties (such as rosemary, orange, and geranium).

My Initial Experience with Bellabaci Cupping Therapy as a Cellulite Treatment

The first time I used my Bellabaci cups, I was impressed.  When applying the negative pressure to my legs, I was able to feel exactly where my circulation was at its worst.  Certain areas were especially tender, as if they were bruised (even though there weren’t any visible signs of bruising).

During my first session, the tender spots were above my knee on the outer edge.  My calves were extremely tender.  I could barely apply the slightest amount of suction, and I cringed the entire time.  The cupping did not leave any visible signs afterward, although I read that bruising is common.  I prefer gentle therapies so I made sure not to overdo it.

After a few sessions with the Bellabaci cups, I noticed my calves were not nearly as sensitive and the spot above my knee cleared up, too.  I now use the strongest level of suction on my calves and it feels great.  The area on the back of my thighs feels tender now which I had not noticed before.  I am curious to see if the lymphatic congestion really is working its way out of my system.  It feels as if it is, but only time will tell for sure.

I’m a “massage therapist in training” and would love to have a set of these to use on clients. My massage therapist uses cupping ( a different device ) and it is amazing how such a small tool can work so deeply. I will be graduating in December, and this would be a great addition to my “toolbox”….. thanks!

I have been battling cellulite for years doing everything I can and still little results. I would be most excited to try these out. I don’t have any extra money right now to buy them. If you decide not to pick me I hope whoever you pick does thoroughly try these out and reports back to the group their results.

Our giveaway winners have been great at reporting their results in the past. Instead of me picking a winner, I put all the entries in a spreadsheet and leave it up to random.org to decide. We’ll see what happens this time around! Thanks for entering the giveaway, Carol.

Hello Melissa, I “liked” your blog some time ago, and today because of you I discovered “StumbleUpon”:) I would love to volunteer with Bellabaci cups (ital. beautiful kisses) to improve circulation and decrease the cellulite on my calves, right now I use towel brushing, but sofar I don’t see results. I could imagine that these cups increase the chance to “attack” the fatty spots and I would love to try it out, it does not seem to difficult to do as long it is consistent. Thank You and happy investigation.

Reply

The Bellabaci cups are excellent for the calf area! You’ll love them, Simi. Have you ever tried using a brush for skin brushing, instead of a towel? The bristles can be quite effective at stimulating lymph.

I live in Hong Kong. I am not sure whether I am qualified to enter the contest. If I am, I would love to volunteer to try it.
Anyway, I am Chinese and my massage therapist sometimes did some cupping on me. And bruise is common. I was told that’s the “bad blood” got drawn to the surface. In Hong Kong, you could sometimes see on the street who has just did some cupping, because you could see some circle shape bruise on people’s necks, arms, etc.. !!

Reply

Sorry, Carrie. I can only have the cups shipped to a U.S. address. I did read the bruising is common with cupping therapy, but I haven’t noticed it with the Bellabaci cups. They make it easy to adjust the pressure so it’s just right. Why damage the skin with bruising if it’s not necessary? Thanks for your comment. It’s really interesting to hear about your experience there in Hong Kong. Do women use cupping there to treat cellulite, or is it not as common of a problem?

Melissa, I would love to win these cups! I am a massage therapist and use the glass cups on myself. However, the strength of suction is particularly difficult to control and often end up with too much. In that I am now using cupping on my 14 year old as a means to minimize stretch marks, prevent cellulite and to keep her circulatory systems (including lymphatic) healthy, I think these cups would prove to be perfect for her younger body. In addition, I plan on adding to my menu of services “Mother & Daughter” services as I begin to cater to the teenager. These cups would be perfect!

Good luck, Teresea! I’m eager to hear how your experiments continue to progress!

Hi Melissa,
As far as I am concerned, people in HK mainly use cupping to release muscle tension. Most people do it mainly on the back and neck. I never thought about doing it on my cellulite but I assumed it would help too.

Interesting. So it’s used a lot like we would use a regular pressure massage. Good to know. Thanks, Carrie!

I recently learned about cupping and I’ve have had a cyst on my face for a long time. I’ve tried so many different creams, lotions, sulfur, and spent so much money on trying to get this thing to go away. Since it is actually on top of the skin and flesh colored I thought I’d try cupping it. I got a dobber bottle that used to have antibiotic in it that was easy to squeeze and right diameter and started using it. It’s actually working to reduce the size of it. I’m even more amazed at the fact it doesn’t leave a huge hicky on my face. This has caused me to become a firm believer in the technique.
My other half has some major back issues because of a car accident that pulverized his leg as a teenager. He gets deep tissue messages, but still gets really bad tight knots in his muscles between visits. I really think this would be a great way to help him between visits. I also am curious if cupping will help to remove the pollutants we are exposed to from working outside in downtown. My hope is that it will improve our energy levels, mood, and over all sense of well being (less grumpy).
Even if you don’t select me, thank you for the opportunity.

That’s incredible, Angie! Since I started writing about cupping I’m impressed with the success stories I’ve received so far. Bellabaci offers a set of cups for the face, too. After reading your story, I want to try them! Thanks for entering the giveway!

I am open to try anything…I’ve been battling cellulite since I was 12 years old and it is extremely frustrating when you work hard, exercise and try to eat right to find that the cellulite is still there! It would be nice to be able, for a change, to wear a bikini without the self conscious thoughts of everyone staring at my ugly bumps. 23 years of housing this stuff is enough for me…lol!

Hi Melissa, I was excited to find our website and to participate in your cellulite investigation! I “liked” your page on FB, and following you on Twitter, and have shared your FB post on my page. I have used the plastic set for cellulite cupping on clients, and also use a machine which does the same thing. My goal is to teach people how to do cupping on themselves, and I think the Bellabaci cups would be perfect as they’re relatively inexpensive and easy to use one-handed. (You don’t have to pump them with one hand and hold the cup with the other as you do with plastic sets). I’m not aware of Bella Baci being sold in the United States, so this would be just perfect to be able to try out this set! Thank you for your work in this area.

I would love to try the cups on my cellulite. I have tried dry brushing but it didn’t show any results, of course, I may not have done it long enough. I am anxious to increase circulation in my legs, not jut to improve their appearance but also to help me combat circulation problems that I know I have. My legs get cold easily and they become uncomfortable if I am sitting for an hour or more. I believe circulation problems runs in my family and would be interested to see how the cupping therapy would affect them.

I’m willing to volunteer to investigate them with you. For many reasons! First, my favorite acupuncturist from China used these and the effects were wonderful in terms of stimulating chi and circulation. He mainly used them on the back, but I can see how they could work many ways. I would try them for cellulite or for general health. I have fibromyalgia and would love to see how increased blood flow could help increase chi and energy. I also am a cranio-sacral and massage therapist who loves alternative therapies so this is something I’ve been fascinated with.

Awesome! I have been working out/lifting weights since 2009. This spring I started the Peak 8 cardiovascular workout 3 days a week and have seen great results but more cellulite showing up. My fitness challenge with a friend is going on the Paleo diet (which in two weeks has already shown a loss in more body fat and inches on my waist). Since reading your site I’ve started dry brushing (for 2 weeks now – seeing results already) and I’m also doing hot/cold therapy in the shower. I’ve increased weight in my lifting at the gym. So, we’ll see if the Bellabaci cups speed up the process on my ‘baby’ weight tummy!

Reply

Very cool, Camela! I’m a big fan of the Paleo diet. Although I don’t consider myself “paleo” per se, most of the time I end up eating that way. What’s not to love about meat, fruit, and veggies?

Interesting about the increase in cellulite… studies show that many women see an increase in the appearance of cellulite following weight loss (see Study Reveals Cellulite is Worse After Dieting). This could be because there is less fat to hide the pockets of lymphatic congestion trapped under the skin. I’m so excited that you’re seeing results with dry brushing! Thanks for the update!

My hopes soared when I found the videos on the Bellabaci cups. With the onset of menopause, I’ve started to live many unfavourable changes including cellulite creeping to the surface and all of this, despite having always exercised and eaten well all my life. As such, I would so very much love a chance to try these as I sense the treatment could help in so many other ways by simply stimulating circulation and detox. This sounds like the perfect tool to improve how I feel overall. Everything I can cross, is crossed!

I stumbled upon your website accidentally while researching Cellulite treatments that really work. I am 49 years old and have cellulite from knee to butt. I haven’t been in a bathing suit or even shorts since the age of 18. I won’t even wear shorts in the house. On picnics or other outdoor events the shortest I have gone are capris. I am and always have been embarrassed by my cellulite. I would truly love to try these massage cups. To be able to put on a pair of shorts after all these years would be so awesome. What a happy girl I would be.

I couldn’t wait to see if I could win a set and bought my own. I started using them December 24th and have been using the bellabaci cups everyday since then for 15 minutes on each leg. I’m wondering how long it will be before I start to see results. According to their website, I have stage 5 cellulite so I’m assuming it will take a while to improve the appearance. But I really do believe that if anything could help, it would be this. Also, it says to drain the lymph. would that be in the groin area? and if I don’t drain the lymph properly, am I causing more harm than good?

These are really good questions, Elizabeth. Lucky for us, Keren Trabelsi (the creator of the Bellabaci cups) agreed to an interview for our investigation. It’s scheduled for next Saturday, 15 January. More details coming soon. I’ll be sure to ask here these questions. Let me know if you have any more!

Thank you Shannon! Yeah, I definitely want to keep using them. and it’s hopeful to know that it may take up to a month to see a difference.

Four weeks isn’t too bad! Did those women happen to mention how often they used the cups and for how long?

Not sure if the contest is still on, it’s still being featured at the top of your website which is how I found it so I’m guessing it is, so I would like to enter. I like the concept of reverse pressure and would love to try it.

Thanks for entering, Aimee! The winners will be announced next week.

in the reviews i found, one woman said she saw results “after a month of continued use” and another person said she used it every day for 4 weeks, but they did not specify how long they used it on each leg. so it seems like with a little patience we could start to see some results with this! it seems promising. there aren’t many reviews to be found yet, but the ones out there are positive. here is a link to one of the reviews:

Thanks for the link, Shannon! It’s a great article! I suppose she probably used the cups for the recommended 8-10 minutes a day. It’s exciting that she saw results in just a few weeks.

I have a lot of cellulite on my legs. It’s ammbarrasing to go to the beach with my friends or family. I have to cover my legs all the time. But I heard this product which is the cups and it actually helps to reduce cellulite. I was very impressed, it can change anybody’s life forever. But these cups are very rxpensive. I would be very lucky women to win the cups.

Sorry Maria, but the giveaway is over. Several of us are reporting our results with the cups in our discussion forum, so at least you can know if they are worth the investment. I hope you’ll follow along with our progress!

Hi, Andrea. Just wanted to make sure you noticed that this giveaway is over. You can still purchase the cups on Amazon or elsewhere, or we might be running another promotion this summer if you want to hold out! Here’s the link to our discussion forum where we’re talking about our experiences using the cups. It should at least help give you an idea of whether or not you want to make the investment. http://www.celluliteinvestigation.com/forum/thermae/cupping-massage-cellulite

I am deffinetly willing to give these a try since i have recently thought of having surgery. i am just getting desperate. I have not worn shorts or skirts since i was around 11 or 12 because of cellulite. i work out and have a very healthy lifestyle. i have tried all creams and work-out’s, but its relentless and i am 27 now, and just getting depressed. I have had to move to Mississippi due to work, and it is just too hot for jeans lol

Hi, Amanda. Unfortunately the giveaway is over but you can order the cups here from Amazon.

Did you find that this was a worthwhile investment? Did you notice improvement of your cellulite and do you still use these cups? I’m interested in purchasing them and was curious about your final conclusions. Thanks!

Reply

Hi, Jo. Thanks for your question. Sorry I’m just now getting back to you! Yes, I am still using these cups. They seem to give the circulation in my legs a little boost which I certainly need, judging from the amount of cellulite and spider veins on them. They haven’t been enough to clear my cellulite at this point, but I’m still in the midst of my fluoride detox which, if my theory is correct, is the major cause of my cellulite. My main anti cellulite effort is my fluoride detox, and I’m just using the cups to help that along.

I hope that helps!

I would love to try out your cellulite removal cups. I have tried many products over the years only to find little improvement. Years ago I went to a sap in LA and was given a knuckle sea weed massage that really hurt. This went on for six weeks and it did get rid of most of my cellulite. But there has to be a at home remedy and I’m hoping it’s your cups.
Please let me know if I could try out your cups. I’ll give you honest week by week reviews and photos if you like.
Sincerely
Deirdre ODonnell

Hi, Deirdre. This giveaway has been closed for a while but the cups are still available for purchase on Amazon.

That seaweed knuckle massage sounds awesome! Did you go once a week or was it multiple visits? Six weeks is excellent to see results.

After loosing 58kg I sit with quite a lot of cellulite. Would love to have a set. Living in South Africa’s wonderful weather, it is not nice to see everybody wearing swimsuits and sit on the side because of cellulite.

Congrats on the weight loss, Wilma. The giveaway is closed but you can order the cups directly from Bellabaci. (They are located in South Africa, too!)

Kaitlin, the gievaway is over but you can buy the cups on Amazon if you are still interested: http://www.amazon.com/Bellabaci-710-Body-Cup-Set/dp/B006RFWFPK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1353602992&sr=8-1&keywords=bellabaci+cups

I had some of these cups used on me by a Chinese masseur for an ongoing shoulder problem in addition to other treatment but I could not afford to continue the treatment as I lost my job so I had to terminate all treatment. I felt some relief when they were applied and would very much appreciate this free offer to try and do them at home as the pain is an ongoing problem, pain killers are no use and anti-inflammatory medication only helps a little, moreover they do have side effects.
