Why Cupping Therapy Is So Popular among Celebs and Athletes?

If you watched the Olympic Games or a red carpet event recently, you might be wondering why some athletes and personalities are left giant reddish-purple bruises on their backs.

Those bruises are side effects of a type of sports therapy called "cupping." Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine commonly used to treat muscle pain in the neck, shoulders, and back. It may be beneficial to anyone experiencing muscle tension or tightness, not just athletes. During cupping therapy, multiple suction cups, made of glass or plastic, are applied to certain areas of your body. Photo Credit to: Elle

The treatment includes putting glass cups – which are warmed by a mechanical pump – on the body; when the air inside the cup cools, a vacuum is produced which lets the skin rise. The cups are then placed for five minutes and are often slided across the skin slowly to create a massage-like effect. The suction flushes out toxins and is said to offer pain relief. Sometimes, it leaves behind purple circular marks when the capillaries near the skin surface are broken. 

The rock showed off the results of cupping therapy on his back , and said he has found a new way to take care of his body. More interestingly, decorated Olympic Champion Michael Phelps left the comments to support The Rock’s enjoyment of cupping therapy. “The best,” he said, “welcome… it feels soooooo good.” Phelps is really into cupping therapy and was often spotted with prominent cupping dots that made audiences and media buzzing.
