Chinese bubbles, as the name suggests, have their roots in Chinese traditional medicine. The principles surrounding bubble therapy are very similar to acupuncture. Bubbles are usually placed on pressure points in the body.
Using fire, the bubble is heated and immediately placed on the body and the pressure ‘sucks’ the skin. Typically, the therapy lasts about 15 minutes. According to folk beliefs, this is supposed to stimulate the flow of ‘qi’ – energy in the body that frees the body from disease
Nowadays tradition goes hand in hand with modernity, bubbles are made of fireproof glass, plastic or silicone. Those used to eliminate cellulite are usually very malleable, they work on the principle of the pump and you can massage the body with them. To move them freely a few drops of oil are added to the massage.
Massage with so-called Chinese bubbles or simply placing them on the skin is a type of non-invasive therapy that aims to reduce the appearance of cellulite, or orange peel This involves creating pressure between the bubble and the skin on the sensitive areas on your body – thighs, abdomen and buttocks. The benefit is not only a reduction in cellulite. Putting bubbles relaxes tense muscles and promotes blood circulation. The skin becomes tighter, nourished and smoother.
