One of the best all-around cups. The hand-feel is great on these as it feels almost like a computer mouse with a nice shelf.The Edge cups come in four different sizes making them a great choice for any body part. They can be applied using two different methods which allows for improved application on differently shaped body parts. The suction can be easily graded from minimal suction to stronger suction with these cups. Also these cups can be used statically or dynamically.
Designed for daily use in the shower for cellulite treatments these cups have a thicker brim and create a strong suction at their base. These cups come in two different sizes and their suction can be lightly graded, not as specific as the Edge, but still good variability. These cups have a good hand feel and are a solid, hearty cup used both statically and dynamically.
A combination of plastic and silicone, these cups create their suction power by squeezing the silicone bulb and placing the plastic along the body similar to a suction machine. The circumference of these cups is smaller than most other cups making it a great choice for cupping smaller body parts or conditions like TMJ, hand and face muscles. These cups can be used statically or dynamically.
When strong suction is required, these cups are the number one choice. These cups come in two different sizes. They can be applied using two different methods, one of which is a very strong inverted method that is great for tissues that need a lot of lift. They are used primarily for static cupping can also be used for light dynamic cupping. Good for ITB, plantar fasciitis, trapezius tightness.
Affectionately known as the flip flop cup, this cup is a shell-like cup that is applied either by flipping it inside out and back over again, or by placing the cup base side down and pressing down into dome. These cups are used in static positions only and are great for cupping contoured areas and areas that don't have huge soft tissue bulk like the plantar surface of the foot.
