Risks and how to avoid them



During ozone funneling or cupping the ozone stream is focused onto a smaller area of the skin and allows for a concentrated ozone treatment of that area. Some people love to funnel ozone onto their liver in order to allow for a deeper detoxification of that organ.



In order to be able to do funneling or cupping, you need:

oxygen + ozone generator + funnel / cup

Ozone body suit

Oxygen source: Either an oxygen tank or an oxygen concentrator can be used. Ozone funneling requires relatively slow oxygen flows: 1/32 to 1/8 LPM. 

Oxygen concentrator: there are several possibilities. One can either us a low flow oxygen concentrator which allows for oxygen flows of maximum 1/8 LPM or one can use a regular oxygen concentrator (which usually allows for oxygen flows of 1/2 to 5 LPM) and attach an external low flow regulator.

Oxygen tank: either industrial or medical oxygen tanks should be equipped with pediatric regulators. Pediatric or low flow regulators allow for oxygen flows from 1/32, 1/16 to 1/8 LPM.

Ozone generatorIt should be a generator which uses ozone resistant materials in the air chamber, can be fed oxygen from an oxygen concentrator or an oxygen tank, can reliably produce relatively stable ozone concentrations at given oxygen flows, and does not exceed ozone concentrations of 80 ug/ml. For funneling/cupping it should be able to generate ozone concentrations of up to 80 ug/ml (gamma) at oxygen flows of 1/32 to 1/8 LPM.

Accessories: A cup or funnel.


Suggested settings:

Oxygen flow: max 1/8 LPM
Ozone concentration: 40-90 gamma
Duration: a minimum of 10 min, for as many times per day as necessary
For an overview of the different connectors and tubing, please go to How to connect ozone equipment.

Take enough tubing to comfortably connect the oxygen output (from either tank or concentrator) with the oxygen inlet on the ozone generator. Take a separate silicone tubing and attach one end to the ozone generator’s “ozone out” outlet, the other end to the funnel or cup.

Turn the oxygen on, set it at a low flow of 1/32 to 1/8 LPM, then turn the ozone generator on, and set it at an ozone concentration of 40 to 90 ug/ml.

Use a warm and wet towel and apply it to the area you’d like to treat. Then place the cup on top of the skin and keep it on the spot for several minutes. Keep reapplying the wet towel to keep the area wet throughout the application.



Kitchen funnels made of silicone can be used for ozone funneling/cupping. They’re highly ozone resistant and flexible which allows for a better fit onto the skin. An additional small connector might be necessary to attach the funnel to the silicone tubing.



Risk: red, itchy rash.

How to avoid it: See ozone sauna

    Hi Paula,

    How do you compare cupping to direct injection in efficacy against Lymes?


    • paola d

      Hi Tj,

      I doubt very much that one can achieve any discernible improvement with local cupping when dealing with a systemic infection like Lyme.


    • Tj

      Are you still doing direct injections? Any reason you’d choose cupping over direct injection?

    • paola d

      Yes, I’m still doing direct injections when the need arises.
      I would do cupping for a local problem like a tumor, cyst, local infection, or some other type of growth on the skin or close to the skin surface.

    Do you know, in general the percentage of ozone concentration that yields 40 gamma/ml?

    • paola d

      Hi Helen,

      40 mcg/ml (colloquially but incorrectly gamma is used to mean concentration in mcg/ml) of ozone equals around a 3% concentration. So if someone uses an ozone concentration of 40 mcg/ml (to which most people would say 40 gamma), 3% of the volume of gas they’re using is ozone and around 97% would be oxygen.

    Hey there… I am battling Stye/ Chalezas in my eyes. Can I cup my eye or will the ozone cause damage to my eyeball? I have done the ozonated saline and it is not very effective.

    • paola d

      Hi Rhonda,
      I would not use straight ozone gas on the eye, but I have no experience in that area, sorry.
