I bought this in hopes of relieving a chronic pain in my neck. The pain feels like a burning poker digging into my neck.
This has brought relief that I have otherwise not been able to achieve for years despite excellent chiropractic care.
I think it was able to create space and circulation to a chronically congested area.
I have gone on to use it all over my body with great success.
This is a fairly large cupping device, so it's a little harder to use on narrower body areas. I have an acupuncture spot on my ankle that has been sore and I wanted to treat it, but the cup wasn't sealing against the skin, due to the size, so I had to move it further up on my leg. Just something to keep in mind.
Overall, the product works very well. It has simple, intuitive buttons and I like that I can see through the clear ring at the base and watch the skin be pulled up in a dome. This one also releases immediately if you power it off, which is extremely important to me -- I have tried a few other cupping devices that would not release when shut off, and it's a little scary. This one instantly depressurized and released when I powered off.
Easy to use and works perfectly
Really powerful suction, simple easy to use just make sure you use some type of body oil on your skin before using it.
I bruise like a peach so I was nervous to try cupping. I ordered the Smart Dynamic Cupping Therapy Set because after reading the specs it is possible to control the cupping strength. I started with the red light cupping on my stomach which was pretty gentle and didn't leave a bruise (yay!). I carry a heavy backpack everyday which causes strain on my neck and shoulders. I used the cupping device at level three near my shoulder blade. I had a significant amount of redness on my shoulder area and a quality purple bruise once the redness settled. Good thing it's winter so nobody will see my back for a few more months. The cupping at level 3 did work for pain relief which is why I ordered the cupping device so this is a good thing. Overall I think this it's easy to use and effective. The bruising is a me problem.
I am new to cupping. Over the past few months I have been reading and watching videos on the therapy technique. I chose this device because I thought it would be a safe effective choice for a beginner. My husband had sever back spasms and I have been using this cupping device on his back. He says it’s working and the back pain has decreased a significant amount when placed over the tight spots. Overall it’s easy to use, the heat setting is nice. The suction is exactly what we need. Over all a good device. I think it will be great to take on stressful work trips.
