Living in Asia for the last few months, I’ve become totally obsessed with Eastern Medicine as a way to cure my ailments, which is how I found myself laying face down on a table with burning plastic cups stuck to my back thanks to cupping therapy.
I went back to working out after a few weeks (OK fine, a few months) off, and it did a number on my back. I tweaked my back and my shoulders were so sore I could barely carry my every day tote. I recently got a massage that freaked me out a little bit (too much pressure in all the wrong places) so wanted to find something that would achieve the same results without the risk of making things worse.
Enter: Cupping, AKA the creepy looking thing pictured above.
