My love affair with cupping started in South Korea. I’m still searching for a place in my neighborhood, but while I was in Hunan province we went to see my friends uncle who is a Chinese Medicine Doctor and has been for 40 years.
In his office he checked my tongue to make sure there was nothing wrong with my insides followed by checking my pulse for about 5 minutes. I was given a clean bill of heath, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity for cupping . Lucky for you I had my friend take some photographs of the process.
It hurts a little at first, but after a while it’s soothing and sleep inducing. I find that I can breathe so much better after a session. Most of the bruises will fade by the next day, but the deeper colored ones will take longer, and those are the ones where toxins are located in your body. If you ever get the opportunity, try it!
