CUPPING! Ever heard of that?

Hmmmm!I hear and read all sorts that happen in this world of ours!So Cupping!Anybody heard of that?I guess not.When I first saw pictures of the looked gross and painful but apparently the 'cupping' process is meant to supposedly improve blood flow! Righ!So Jennifer Aniston was seen at a movie premier looking all glamorous but with marks said to have been left by cupping...It doesn't look sexy,I tell you now!Lol!No ways am I subjecting my beautiful back to this isshhh.....! So what is cupping?

Dating back 5,000 years, the therapy is a form of acupuncture, and is based on the idea that suction from the cups draws the skin up and mobilizes blood and energy around the body.
‘If someone is under stress, or they've suffered a physical trauma like a pulled shoulder, the energy in their body can become stagnated,’ explains Ian Stones, an acupuncturist in Farnham, Surrey, and member of the British Acupuncture Council, who has been practicing cupping for six years. ‘Cupping enables the blood and energy to move again and travel to the area to begin the healing process.
‘It can also have good results if someone is coming down with a cold. The suction can help to stop the cold penetrating further into the system.’ Typically, a flame is first placed inside a glass or rubber cup, so the heat can create a partial vacuum, before the flame is removed and the cup held to the skin for about three minutes. Although the resulting marks can look alarming, they are temporary, and this kind of cupping should not hurt in any way as the cups used are thick-rimmed and do not heat up. Other forms of cupping — which costs around £50 per session — involve using a sort of suction kit, so no flame is needed'

Forget that!I don't care, there's no way am doing that even if it was for a pound!If you stressed,take a holiday, read a book,listen to some uplifting music, spend more time with close friend and family,go to the gym/exercise more...I don't know why things like this tend to take more priority over more traditional methods of tackling blood flow, energy....Just though I share though,so now you know! Thanks for stopping by!Blossom always, sign up,leave your comments and enjoy the weekend! xxxxx
