What I looked like after cupping
Yep call me what you want but I will just about try anything once, as long as its legal and not against what the bible says.
Today I went for an acupuncture treatment.
Oh boy, I always enjoy how I feel afterwards.
And today....was no different.
However Jerry, the acupuncturist did a procedure called cupping. It really has not been "proven" to work but many non traditional holistic medicine people believe it does.
Basically here is the low down....a suction cup, a diabetic type needle and weird round bruising afterwards ^ as picture shows above.
I try all kinds of things and enjoy learning alternatives to modern medicine, cupping included. Although it looks like it must have hurt, it really didn't. In fact, I left feeling very rejuvenated and refreshed. I had tons of back pain and shoulder pain and left with no back pain and minimum shoulder pain.
I love the look I get when I tell my boss what weird thing I'm doing now. Most he would never try and laughs on the inside and outside at me when I tell him what I have done or are doing.
I enjoyed very much letting him know I will be leaving to have needles stuck in me, on purpose.
Although I had no idea about the cupping I agreed to it and hope that I see extra relief from it too. I text my boss to see if he knew what cupping was. I know him pretty well and he most likely googled it. I never heard back from him so i figured he is still shaking his head and laughing at me...oh and thinking what a freak I am.
All the above might be true but the one thing I do know is that my back and shoulder feel better, and I don't have to take any medicine that will destroy my liver.
So since that is the case I will be returning on Wednesday for more needles.....now that sounds weird :)
