Cupping Massage Therapy is a natural body treatment that enhances circulation and expels toxins and waste in the body.

Face cupping has been on our radar for quite a while. So when our friends from Bellabaci invited us to try it out at the Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah, we were quick to head there.

Bellabaci is the creator of the modernized silicone, hand-squeezable vacuum massage Cups. The Cups create negative pressure on the body surface which draws stagnant blood from the capillaries to the veins to be cleansed and disposed. This deep tissue massage instantly soothes painful areas of the body and repairs skin tissue. The gentle suction of the Cup on the skin is called the “Cup Kiss” hence our name, Bellabaci, meaning “Beautiful Kiss”.

Traditional Cupping has for many years been known as stationary or placement Cupping, where a cup is placed on one area for several minutes. However, the Bellabaci Massage technique used in thousands of luxury spas around the world, massages the body in a slow, detoxifying and relaxing manner.


Bellabaci has a set of body and facial cups in the comfort of your own home as a natural body treatment to boost circulation and vitality, reduce the signs of cellulite, alleviate stress and anxiety or as a skincare regime for antiageing. 

The original Bellabaci Cups are made from soft high-grade silicone and are squeezed to gain negative pressure. The technique was created to target specific body systems and offer a respite to the day’s stresses.


The Anti-Ageing Bellabaci Facial Cups, combined with their natural, paraben-free, non-staining wellness oil Genies offer a non-invasive solution to premature ageing.

Due to environmental stresses, such as sun exposure and air pollution, over time, skin starts to lose elasticity and firmness, causing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Anti-ageing Facial Cups and wellness products by Bellabaci gently address the following skin concerns:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Target eye bags and dark circles
  • Even skin tone and texture
  • Firm sagging areas such as cheeks and jowls
  • Address the appearance of double-chin
  • Deep cleanses and prevents skin congestion
  • Volumizes lips for a youthful glow

The 3 Step Cupping Massage Therapy System consists of 3 steps to ensure effective cupping results. Step 1, exfoliate the skin. Step 2, massage oil or lotion onto the affected area. Step 3, use the Bellabaci Cups and massage in circular motions.

Restore facial resilience by boosting blood circulation in the Face with the Bellabaci Facial Cups. Place the Facial Cup on your face on the centre of the forehead and move outwards three times on each side. Continue to the cheeks and around the chin and mouth area.

Facial Cupping is a safe non-invasive, non-surgical, luxurious express facial in the comfort of your own home.

If you want to try out the treatment at the spa then the Waldorf Astoria at Palm Jumeirah offer treatments for the body and face. These are the perfect way to get acquainted with cups before you start using them at home.

You can purchase the kits from the Waldorf Astoria Palm Jumeirah.
