About Sakina, your Teacher
BSc(Hons) Lic Ac.
I have been practicing acupuncture for the past 12 years, both in the UK and in the US. I started using Facial Cupping, in addition to my needles, to help alleviate the pain of some patients with nerve conditions such as peripheral neuropathy, and to stimulate muscle strength in paralysis cases such as Bell’s Palsy.
Realising how beneficial Facial Cupping was to my patients, I decided to incorporate Facial Cupping into my Cosmetic Acupuncture treatments. If it could stimulate paralysed facial muscles, I knew that Facial Cupping could work in helping to improve facial muscle tone in my cosmetic patients.
Adding Facial Cupping to my traditional acupuncture treatments had an instant positive effect on all my patients. They just loved it! I kept using my Facial Cupping techniques with my patients until the 2020 lockdown arrived, where I unfortunately couldn’t see my patients face-to-face anymore.
As a result, I had the idea to share my expertise and knowledge online. What could be more beneficial to my patients than being able to do the treatment by themselves in the comfort of their own home?
That is how the idea of The Facial Cupping Expert was created.
I now teach Facial Dry Brushing as well as Facial Acupressure, as both these natural techniques have a profound effect on the health of the skin.
