Enjoy A Sensational Summer At Shuiqi Spa With Complimentary Treatments And The Introduction Of Bellabaci Cupping

The award-winning ShuiQi Spa at Atlantis, The Palm invites guest to try the latest therapeutic technique to help extend treatments and get the most out of massages

ShuiQi Spa introduces bellabaci cupping this summer, a modern elevated version of the ancient therapeutic cupping technique. Therapists use this as an upgrade during treatments to assist in lengthening massage benefits. In addition to this new technique, ShuiQi Spa also invites guests to experience a ‘Sensational Summer’ with two offers good through the end of August to relish in a moment of self-indulgence.

The bellabaci cupping technique used at ShuiQi Spa is not simply a placement technique, instead the therapists massage the cup around the body in conjunction with massage for a deeper release of muscular tension, helping to break down any scar tissue. Instead of the Hijama, made of plastic or glass that tend to leave marks, the bellabaci cupping utilises scientifically designed medical silicone cups that are hand squeezed to provide a vacuum that provide superior stimulation to the skin and underlying tissue.

Did you know

  1. Originating in China over 3,000 years ago, cupping therapy is an ancient and universal practice with a rich history of use that spans both East and West
  2. Cupping is a healing method that uses suction to create negative pressure to lift the skin away from the underlying tissues.
  3. The main principle of cupping is to create a surge of blood flow beneath the cup to bring fresh, oxygen-rich blood cells along with white blood cells and pain relief receptors so localized healing can take place
  4. Cupping has been found to affect the body by up to four inches into the soft tissues, attachments, and organs
  5. The Bellabaci cupping therapy, just as acupuncture, helps sedate an individual’s central nervous system. This, of course, helps a person enter into a more relaxed state and alleviate stress. This helps protect an individual from anxiety, stress and depression

In order to see the long term benefits of bellabaci cupping, it is recommended to add it to any massage at least once a month. Pair this with the ‘Sensational Summer’ offer and create a unique treatment experience to relax and rejuvenate.

Sensational Summer

Guests can enjoy any 60-minute treatment at ShuiQi Spa and receive a 30-minute complimentary Facial or Body Scrub. In addition, book any Signature Journey – like the popular Forest Therapy – and receive a complimentary gift.

Bellabaci Cupping

Upgrade any massage to incorporate the new bellabaci cupping technique for AED 50. Originating from traditional Eastern medicine, cupping therapy has been around for centuries. With bellabaci cupping, ShuiQi Spa therapists use silicone cups to create a vacuum/suction on the muscles that immediately brings oxygen and new blood cells to the area, creating a detoxification process, which improves the overall massage benefits.
