Cupping's been around for thousands of years - we're talking ancient Egypt and China here. It uses specialized cups to create suction on your skin. As the cup vacuum-seals to your body, it lifts and separates the tissue layers beneath the surface. This gentle "reverse massage" decompresses the tissue and gets your lymph fluid and fresh oxygen-rich blood flowing.
Does Cupping Actually Work?
Uh, yes! Big time.
Cupping gently works out knots and kinks from the inside out - no aggressive digging and prodding required! Studies show it reduces chronic back and neck pains better than pain meds. Relaxing yet effective.
When painful knots, tension, or stiffness flare up, apply Lure Essentials cups over the affected area and feel soothing relief within moments as the suction releases contracted tissues. Experience reduced pain and increased mobility in just minutes as cupping goes to work right away.
Works Anywhere on Your Body
Whether you struggle from painful trigger points, tense necks throbbing temples, tight lower back, inflamed nerves, and more, Lure cups will help you find relief. From delicate facial muscles to aching joints or sore feet, you can customize your DIY cupping experience.
Cupping should feel comfortable! Our soft silicone cups gently hug your body as they glide and massage. You'll feel a soothing suction sensation as those tense tissues lift into the cup. Most describe it as deeply releasing instead of painful. *PRO TIP: just be sure to use ample amount of oil or lotion for frictionless glide.
What About Those Circular Cup Marks?
No need to fret - those temporary circle imprints left behind aren't bruises. They represent blood flow called to the area to heal and rejuvenate your muscles. Not every body marks and the marks typically fade within a few a few minutes or days. Consider them a sign of positive change to come. We call them badges of healing.

The movement of the cup mimics the rolling action of deep tissue massage, where cupping treatment creates reverse or "negative" pressure by pulling skin upward. Redness of just massaged skin and feel of warmth (heat) is an indication of increased healthy blood flow to the area you cupped. If you opt in for stationary massage cupping technique, you may notice round marks in the shape of your cups, commonly referred to as “hickey”. These marks are an indication that toxins and stagnation were pulled to the surface of the body,restoring flow of energy and healthy blood flow. The marks are temporary and will fade within a few days to several weeks.
A: "Cupping Marks" are not bruises. The discolorations produced after stationary cupping may be due to blood stagnation, previous injury or a buildup of lactic acid or toxins brought to the surface. Some cupping marks disappear within minutes, while others may last up to several weeks.
